Jennifer Dickenson, her son, Drew, and Lisa Yue
September 2015 —The 13th Annual CCF Golf Classic, held on July 20, was a sold-out success with 224 attendees and 64 sponsors. Held at the historic and distinguished Montclair Golf Club in New Jersey, the event raised more than $370,000 for pediatric cardiomyopathy research and education.

Guest speaker, Jennifer Dickson, spoke about her cardiomyopathy journey 11 and a half years ago when her son, Drew, was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy at 6 months old. She shared with CCF supporters how the Foundation is making a difference for parents like her and giving hope to thousands of children like Drew. Drew is now a thriving 11 year old who is taking pre-algebra classes, learning to surf and playing recreational basketball.
