An afternoon of golf with Brian Walker and friends to raise money for one purpose - to find a cure for human blindness. Proceeds from the event will go directly to the University of Iowa Institute for Vision Research (UI - IVR) to support its very important work. The UI-IVR is a tax exempt 501(c)(3).

Dinner and Auction will follow.

Dr. Stone and other members of the University of Iowa Institute for Vision Research Board will be on hand to share with you the great work he and his team are doing. I am sure you will be motivated and impressed with their energy and commitment to this work.

Six years ago, our son, Sam Walker, was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease. Thousands of people like Sam are suffering from inherited eye diseases and live with the fear of one day waking up to a dark world. We are honored and humbled by the generosity and compassion of donors like you, who continue to join us in the fight for a cure to eradicate human blindness. THERE IS REALISTIC HOPE!

Ed Stone, MD/PHd, Director of The University of Iowa Institute for Vision Research, is taking a world-leading role in the eradication of human blindness. Through stem cell research, education and clinical care, Dr. Stone is working toward promising treatments that we believe will lead to a cure for Retinitis Pigmentosa – a cure that will save the gift of sight for Sam and thousands of other folks suffering from inherited eye diseases. As these diseases are rare, they will not attract investment from the private sector or the government. I hope you will join me and many other friends and acquaintances on the golf course this summer for a fundraiser in support of Dr. Stone and his important work. In addition to golf and fellowship, Dr. Stone will share the amazing progress he and his team are making.
