Our 10th Annual Charity Golf Tournament benefiting Noah's Bandage Project
Saturday September 24th
at Ironhorse Golf Club
Last year Chris-Leef joined the fight against childhood cancer and partnered with Noah’s Bandage Project. While battling cancer, Noah Wilson had many shots which resulted in receiving many plain, brown bandages. Because of this, he refused to settle for the mundane. He realized that these bandages are more than what they seem to be – they symbolize a badge of courage. Noah had a vision to collect and provide patients with an array of fun bandages as a form of identity, and a way for the children to express themselves. Noah lost his battle to cancer at the age of 7, but his legacy lives on through this project. Noah’s Bandage Project not only collects and donates bandages, but they also raise and donate funds to be used for childhood cancer research to Children’s Mercy Kansas City; a national leader in pediatric cancer research and treatment, as well as one of the best children’s hospitals in the country.
Only 4% of the U.S. national cancer research budget goes to researching childhood cancer. This is where we can step up and make a difference.
The History and Future of our Tournament
Due to the unfortunate impact Breast Cancer has had on our staff, as a company, we felt the need to host an event that would allow a generous donation to be made to Susan G. Komen. In 2011, our vision of supporting a great cause blossomed into our first Breast Cancer Charity Golf Tournament. Chris-Leef management and staff dedicate their time year-round to put together an event that is not only fun and memorable for the participants but rewarding as well.
With your help, our first 8 tournaments have been huge successes! We have been able to raise a total of $109,392.84 for breast cancer awareness, testing, prevention, research, and treatment! Susan G. Komen has and will always hold a special place within our company.
For our 9th annual golf tournament, we have decided to switch gears and team up with a smaller charity that has more of a local focus and impact. We are very excited to announce our decision to partner with Noah’s Bandage Project and join the fight against childhood cancer. Only 4% of the U.S. national cancer research budget goes to researching childhood cancer. This is where we can step up and make a difference.

We are very humbled and overjoyed that we can be a part of these amazing causes that have offered assistance and peace of mind for so many people! For all those involved – we cannot thank you enough!
