Hope Raisers

Raising Hope for a Cure

Fundraisers raise more than funds

They raise HOPE for a cure. They raise HOPE for those living with scleroderma that they will have a better quality of life.

For the last 7 years, The Ciszon family has hosted the Tournament of Non-Champions to honor a beloved member of their family who recently passed away due complications from scleroderma. This annual golf tournament is a fun event that started 7 years ago with just 15 golfers and now hosts more than 100 golfers.

It has grown not only in participants but in dollars raised. In 2016 they raised over $60,000. Participants enjoy on-course competitions, raffle prizes and more! Many golfers show up decked-out in teal and the day even includes a unique “Tournament of Non-Champions” teal trophy for the winner!
