We hope you can join us at the 12th Annual Proof Alliance Golf Classic. Our annual golf tournament is a chance for people to support the fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) community and the work we do. It is one of our fundraising events where people can have fun in the sun, make new friends, and be inspired by our programs and get a chance to connect to our mission.
FASD costs more than $23,000 per person per year.1 These costs include developmental disability services, special education, social service costs, adult vocational services, and institutional care. However, unlike many other disabilities, FASD can be prevented.
When a pregnancy is exposed to alcohol, alcohol crosses the placenta and can cause permanent birth defects and a range of irreversible effects that fall under the FASD spectrum. The Surgeon General and the American College of OB/GYN have issued warnings that there is no known safe level of alcohol during pregnancy. In Minnesota 7,000 babies are born prenatally exposed to alcohol each year.2 And as many as 1 in 20 children have an FASD.3 FASD is more common than autism and is 100% preventable.

Dan “The Common Man” Cole of KFAN radio is back this year and bringing the vibe up a notch. You won’t want to miss out on his wit and humor on the course and at the reception.
“A self-proclaimed radio dinosaur who’s been honing his craft “from town to town, up and down the dial” for more than 30 years, Dan Cole – or the “Common Man” as his legion of local fans call him – has been delighting the listeners of KFAN for more than two decades. From national headlines to local politics to a shot-by-shot recounting of his golf round that morning – the Common Man has a something to say in regard to just about everything.”
Consider sponsoring the event. There is a level to fit any price range. It’s a great way to support the Proof Alliance mission while also promoting your company or organization. Proceeds raised at this event will help ensure that all women will know that there is no safe level of alcohol during pregnancy, and that individuals and families impacted by prenatal alcohol exposure will be identified, supported and valued. If you would like to discuss sponsorship, please contact Deb Noll firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Proof Alliance Golf Classic is a terrific opportunity for sponsors like you to demonstrate support for a vital mission. We’ll have a large group of community and business leaders on the course, making it a great day to network with others who are all committed and passionate about our common cause. Proceeds raised at this event will help further our mission and help directly support Minnesota families.
Thank you for making a difference with families, caregivers, educators, health care providers, legislators, and future generations –right now, right here in Minnesota.
