GREENWICH, Conn. — Global Lyme Alliance, a Lyme and tick-borne disease nonprofit devoted to research and education, will hold its fourth annual golf outing Thursday, Sept. 10, at the Stanwich Club in Greenwich.

Proceeds from the event will be used to help fund research and ultimately find a cure for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.

“A few weeks ago, we heard singer Avril Lavigne talk about her struggle to get properly diagnosed, and her situation, unfortunately, is not unusual,” said Peter Willner, GLA’s CEO. “Lyme disease is notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat. That’s why GLA continues to search out and support the most promising research to develop better diagnostic tests, treatments and ultimately a cure.”

The tournament will begin with registration and warm-up at 11 a.m., followed by a lunch buffet served on the clubhouse terrace, and a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Following the tournament, golfers and guests will be treated to a cocktail reception, buffet dinner, silent auction and awards ceremony.

The cost is $1,000 per player or $3,500 per foursome. The private, 18-hole Stanwich Club, set on 450 acres, is rated best in Connecticut in 2015-16 by Golf Digest and is the highest ranked Connecticut course in New England Golf Monthly’s list of top 25 private courses.

Committee members for the tournament are Charles Balducci, Robert Bel Bruno, Richard Comeau, Tony Frascella, Alan Herzog, Dana and Malcolm McAvity. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For registration and information about sponsorship levels, go to globallymealliance.org/golf or contact event coordinator Shelley Terry at shelley.terry@globallymealliance.org.

Global Lyme Alliance is dedicated to supporting Lyme and tick-borne disease research and education. The 501(c)(3) was formed by the merger of Lyme Research Alliance and Tick-Borne Disease Alliance. GLA’s headquarters are in Greenwich.
