The Fourth Annual Shreveport Diabetes Golf and Tennis Classic is now over and it was our best year yet. On June 12th, a check for $78,000.00 was presented to the JDRF, giving a total donation of $270,000.00 from the first four tournaments. In addition, hundreds more people are now aware of Type 1 diabetes and its effect on the children and adults with the disease.
The first Shreveport Diabetes Tennis Classic was held the weekend before the golf tournament and was a great success. In 2015, we will be adding a 5K run to the golf and tennis classic. Because of this expansion into other sports, SDG, Inc. has changed its name to SHREVEPORT DIABETES SPORTS, INC. The Fifth Annual Golf Tournament will be held on May 18, 2015.
Our tournament was again presented by Kyle and Renee' Sawyer together with 40 other large sponsors, dozens of tee sign sponsors and donors. The board of directors of SDG, Inc. would like to thank these sponsors, all of our volunteers and the staff and management of East Ridge without whom this tournament would not be possible.
We will continue to strive toward our ultimate goal of turning Type 1 into TYPE NONE!
