Golf Tourney Raises Funds for Research at Kennedy Krieger

Despite the heat, humidity and threat of thunderstorms, more than 100 golfers descended upon Eagle’s Nest Country Club on July 16 to raise money for Kennedy Krieger Institute. Michael’s Cafe Raw Bar and Grill hosted the charity golf tournament, which featured a light breakfast, participant goodie bags, lunch, a day of golf, and on-course refreshments and snacks. The fun-filled day concluded at Michael’s Cafe, in Timonium, Maryland, where all of the participants enjoyed a delicious catered dinner, and the tournament champions and raffle winners were announced. 

Through the golf tournament, Michael’s Cafe raised an astounding $6,000! All of the event’s proceeds will support Dr. Mark Mahone’s research on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is the most common behavioral diagnosis in childhood, affecting as many as 10 percent of children throughout the world. Dr. Mark Mahone and his team study brain and behavioral development, and recently published a first-of-its-kind longitudinal study on 4- and 5-year-old children with ADHD. Using world-class neuroimaging technology at Kennedy Krieger, the team continues this groundbreaking research, bringing our experts ever closer to translating scientific discovery into the most advanced and earliest interventions and treatments for children with ADHD.

We’d like to give a huge thank-you to Steve Dellis and his entire team at Michael’s Cafe for hosting this event and supporting this important research endeavor.
