Maximize your support for The Dragonfly Foundation this summer and benefit pediatric cancer patients at @KentuckyChildrensHospital! When you pledge to support Dragonfly
As part of the PGA TOUR’s mission to positively impact local charities through its events, the Barbasol Championship created Birdies for the Bluegrass to maximize the tournament’s impact through not only Central Kentucky but for charities throughout the Commonwealth. Dragonfly’s involvement in this effort will support Kentucky pediatric cancer patients.
PGA TOUR events generated more than $180 million for charities in 2017 and has now raised an all-time total of $2.65 billion for charity. The Barbasol Championship is Kentucky’s only PGA TOUR event which will be played on July 16-22, 2018 at Champions at Keene Trace. The tournament, played the same weekend as the British Open, will be broadcast live each day on Golf Channel and one of only 45 regular-season tournaments before the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

The 2018 Celebrity Softball Classic will be held at UC Medical Center Stadium (formerly known as Florence Freedom Ballpark) located in Florence, KY on July 18th at 7:30 pm.
A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event benefits The Dragonfly Foundation, a Cincinnati-based 501c3 nonprofit that helps young cancer and bone marrow transplant patients (from birth to age 30) and their families.
“…TDF was there for us from the very beginning! During our initial week-long hospital stay, they provided us with a bag of essential items (like deodorant, toilet paper, shampoo, and laundry detergent, to name a few). They also sent our son an unexpected package of toys after we made it back home and started the tough journey of chemotherapy, additional inpatient stays, and home care. TDF seeks to bring comfort and joy to young patients affected by cancer and bone marrow transplants, as well as their families, and they absolutely accomplish that mission! In the midst of such scary medical circumstances, it was so nice to have opportunities to “escape” with our family and participate in a wide range of events and activities… Dragonfly has been our steadiest support and second family. We continue to lean on them for encouragement, knowing that we will always have a place within their purpose.” –A Dragonfly Mom
“Dragonfly is a unique organization, completely out of the box… It does things no one else does, and it does it in successful ways that no one would have ever imagined possible.
Dragonfly is a strong presence on the ward and it is a strong presence in the families.”
–Dr. John Perentesis, Director, Division of Oncology and Cancer Programs, Executive Co-Director, Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Please consider attending and/or sponsoring this year’s event to support to help make this event the success Dragonfly patients and families need it to be.
