Wallingford Family Hosts Seventh Annual Pro-AM For Parkinson's Research In Honor Of Lenny Zwick on Wednesday, August 21

A New Haven County family is inviting the community to join them on the green to help fight Parkinson's disease. The Seventh Annual Zwick Pro-Am golf tournament to benefit the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 21 at the Farms Country Club in Wallingford, from 11 AM to 8:30 PM. It will feature an 18-hole tournament, a luncheon and an awards dinner. The Pro-Am is named in honor of the late Lenny Zwick, an avid Wallingford golfer who lived with Parkinson's for 25 years. The tournament, which attracts more than 100 participants each year, has raised over $300,000 to benefit PDF since its inception in 2007.

The family and friends of the late Mr. Zwick, led by event organizer Dave Melillo in partnership with the PDF Champions program, the grassroots fundraising arm of the Parkinson's Disease Foundation. The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) supports the scientific research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people who are touched by Parkinson's disease. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has invested more than $142 million in research, education and advocacy programs.

As many as one million Americans live with Parkinson's disease, a chronic and progressive movement disorder for which there is no cure.

To register for the tournament or awards dinner, contact the Farms Country Club at (203) 269-9000.
