Duty Free Americas and the Falic Family Foundation raised $325,000 from its 5th annual Charity Golf Tournament held in Miami on Jan. 31. The funds, collected through the Falic family and the travel retail industry, were donated to the Children’s Tumor Foundation, which provides research, expands knowledge, and advances care for NF (all forms of neurofibromatosis).
Presenting the proceeds of the very successful event to McKinnon Galloway, the 2019 NF Ambassador, are: left to right: Joseph, Dov, Simon, Jerome and Leon Falic.
According to the organization’s website, it is estimated that more than 100,000 Americans have NF, making it more common than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined.
