Community Comes Together to Raise Tens of Thousands for Research

In the Lonestar State, dozens hit the links to support our global, groundbreaking research. The Angels Tournament held in Houston, Texas, raised over $100,000 to help fund our continued efforts to find a treatment and cure for Jordan’s Syndrome, a rare genetic mutation on the gene PPP2R5D linked to autism, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.

The event was organized by the Huber family, whose three-year-old son Hutton was diagnosed with Jordan’s Syndrome. Last year, the C3P-Go Gala organized by the Hubers raised an impressive $365,000 for Jordan’s Syndrome research. This year, our community came through once again – opening their hearts for a cause that may someday change the lives of millions around the globe.

Despite windy conditions, several teams posted low scores. The coveted Baby Blue Blazers went to Bobby Anderson, Jon Bellamy, Jack Hardy and Shawn Stoute. Congratulations, gentlemen!

Golden State Classic Raises Funds for Research

They say in life to expect the unexpected, and such was the case with the inaugural Golden State Classic, an all-star swing for charity event benefitting Jordan's Guardian Angels. This particular surprise arrived in the form of a September Sierra snowstorm, blanketing the golf course at the beautiful Edgewood Resort on Lake Tahoe a little earlier than usual.

A little September snow couldn't dampen the giving spirit, however, as sponsors and donors still enjoyed good company while contributing to a great cause.

Inside the Edgewood clubhouse Friday morning, a group of former professional athletes stole the show, setting up an autograph assembly line. The collection of former NFL and MLB players – who were set to take part in the celebrity golf tournament before the snow arrived – signed dozens of baseballs, a thrill for the sports fans in attendance.

Some of our guests left with more than autographed baseballs. A charity raffle wrapped up Friday's festivities, with fine wine and a free luxury hotel stay among the prizes.

On Thursday night, attendees met for a dinner and watched "The Story of Jordan's Syndrome," a documentary highlighting our research effort and the families pushing for answers for their children. Many said it was an eye-opening film that made clear the purpose and importance of the study that could someday impact millions.

The research effort to find answers for Jordan's Syndrome wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our sponsors and funding partners. We'd like to extend a big thank you to all of those who attended, and made the event a big success – in spite of an early taste of winter! Click here to read more about the event. We also wish to thank one of our presenting sponors, Norwood Associates!
