On May 5th, Jet Food Stores hosted their annual NephCure Golf Classic at Twin City Country Club in Sandersville, Georgia. Over the past 12 years, this event has generated more than $350,000 for the NephCure mission.
This year’s golf outing saw the introduction of the #Selfies4NephCure contest. Participants took “selfies” of themselves at the event and posted them to their social media pages. Jet Foods and NephCure are hoping that this social media awareness campaign will continue long after the golf outing. Anyone can join the fun and help us spread awareness – so take a picture of yourself, and post it with the hashtag on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages with #Selfies4NephCure.
NephCure board member and Jet Food Store President Charles Turner is the driving force behind the event. This cause is important to his family and their goal is to support research to discover and make available better treatments for all families dealing with these kidney conditions.
