Migraine Research Foundation Hits Hole-in-One With Golf Outing and Benefit
Date:9/30/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

On September 16, 2013, The Migraine Research Foundation held its annual golf outing and cocktail party benefit at the Brae Burn Country Club in Purchase, NY. On a beautiful fall day, 100 golfers enjoyed a round of golf to raise money for the Migraine Research Foundation’s programs. Following the golf outing, additional guests joined the golfers for an evening of fun. Over $160,000 was raised at the event.

The golf outing drew golfers from as far as Houston, Canada, the UK and Ireland. The evening benefit, sponsored by Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, included raffles and a silent auction. Other sponsors included: NIC Holding Corp., LeeAnn and Peter Jacobs, Echo Energy LLC, Mizuho Securities USA, Citi Private Bank, CME Group, HETCO, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, and Peter Wright.

Although approximately 36 million Americans suffer from migraine, its causes are still unknown. In spite of the prevalence of migraine and its serious effect on individuals, families and society, migraine research is severely under-funded. The Migraine Research Foundation raises money to fund innovative migraine research grants to further the understanding of its causes, to develop improved treatment targets, and to find the cure. MRF also assists sufferers by providing information and referrals. Since all of the Migraine Research Foundation’s operating costs are underwritten, every dollar donated goes to fund migraine research and support sufferers.

The Migraine Research Foundation has an established reputation within the international headache community, a focused mission, and deep knowledge of the migraine field. Since its founding in 2006, MRF has funded 33 research projects.

The Migraine Research Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to ending the debilitating pain of migraine by raising money to fund research grants into its causes and better treatments. More information about MRF, its grants, and how to contribute to its efforts can be found at http://www.migraineresearchfoundation.org.
