12th & Final  
Karen's Hope  
Benefit for Karen Frigstad  
 
June 20, 2013  


We are pleased to announce the 12th and final year of Karen's Hope! This year's event includes a golf tournament, silent auction and dinner.

Fourteen years ago, Karen Frigstad was diagnosed with Friedreichís ataxia. In all prior years, proceeds from this event have benefited the Bob Allison Ataxia Research Center (BAARC). This is the last Karen's Hope. Therefore, this year the proceeds will directly fund Karenís need for a handicapped-accessible bathroom and front entryway. We hope you will join us to raise funds.
