LA Charity Golf Tournament Raises Nearly $31K for UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation

NEW ORLEANS – Golfers from across the Gulf States recently gathered on Monday, April 4, 2016, under bright blue skies for a day of golfing and fundraising at Chateau Golf & Country Club in Kenner, LA. The annual golf classic, hosted by UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF), raised nearly $31,000 to help provide medical assistance grants to families with young children.

         Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded over 10,000 grants valued at more than $29 million to children and their families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy.

         In Louisiana, UHCCF has awarded 34 grants since 2011 and hopes many more local families apply this year.
