Bennett Clayton Foundation
Working to enhance the lives of children and families living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta.
Can we Golf? Can we be together? The answer is YES!
After consideration, we have decided to proceed with the 17th Annual Bennett Clayton Foundation Charity Golf Event. This year’s event will be held Friday, July 31st at Shoreland Country Club in St. Peter. Despite the unusual circumstances we are experiencing, many of you encouraged us to hold the 2020 event. Efforts will be made to enjoy the day safely. If you are comfortable, we hope you will consider being part of this annual tournament.
This year’s theme is simply “Thank You”. The Bennett Clayton Foundation and the DeBlieck and Coomer families thank you for your support in many ways these past seventeen years. Since costumes and decorated golf carts always add fun to the day, we invite you to choose your favorite costume form previous years.
Your support is invited as a golfer or to join us for dinner, golf awards and silent auction. Although we are not soliciting major sponsors this year, we welcome tee box sponsors and silent auction or monetary donations.
Thank you for your continuing support of The Bennett Clayton Foundation for Children with OI.
You can register by filing out the Golf Registration form print and mail it in by July 20th!
Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic bone disorder characterized by fragile bones that break easily. It is also known as “brittle bone disease”. (See OIF.org website for more information.)
Established in 2003, The Bennett Clayton Foundation for Children with OI works to benefit all children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta. The DeBlieck Family organized BCF in honor of Bennett after he was diagnosed with OI at the age of one.
Financial support by generous individuals and corporations enables the foundation to provide support to OI families in the form of personal health grants, college scholarships, social and educational gatherings, research funding and financial assistance for conference attendees.
The Bennett Clayton Foundation recognizes the importance of research into the cause, treatment and possible cure for Osteogenesis Imperfecta. When we become aware of studies related to OI, we attempt to share that information with BCF friends.
Although the foundation provides financial support for research being conducted on behalf of the OIFoundation, we do not specifically endorse any ongoing projects. We will, however, post research information on the BCF website as it is received from the OIFoundation.
As opportunities become available we will post them here:
The OI Foundation would like to bring your attention to a natural history study of OI at the National Institutes of Health. (SEE ABOVE) This study is a part of the NIH Osteogenesis Imperfecta Translational Research Program, led by physician scientist, Joan Marini, M.D., Ph.D.
