Join the Kentucky Academy of Physician Assistants (KAPA) and the Indiana Academy of Physician Assistants (IAPA) for our First Annual Charity Golf Scramble, benefiting the Children’s Organ Transplant Association, on August 29th at Weissinger Hills Golf Course in Shelbyville, Kentucky. We will kick off the day at 8:30a with remarks from our beneficiary and KAPA/IAPA leadership, followed by a “shotgun” style start on the course. Lunch will be provided at the clubhouse as teams finish for the day. All of the proceeds from the event will go to COTA, and to establish two scholarships for PA students in Kentucky and Indiana.
The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is the premier organization providing fundraising assistance to transplant families … for a lifetime. COTA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so funds raised to help meet transplant expenses are not considered income for families. Since 1986 more than $150 million has been raised across the country for thousands of children and young adults needing a life-saving organ, bone marrow or stem cell transplant. COTA also works with individuals of any age with a single-gene disorders such as Polycystic Kidney Disease, Cystic Fibrosis or Sickle Cell Disease.
COTA’s services and guidance are provided at no charge to transplant families. 100% of each contribution made to COTA in honor of patients helps meet transplant-related expenses, and gifts to COTA are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. COTA funds can be used for transplant-related expenses that include lodging, transportation, household expenses, prescription medications, insurance premiums, living donor costs and much more.
