Barry Bakal’s drive for the green raised $20,000
In mixing his love of golf with his loyal support in the battle against pediatric brain cancer, Barry Bakal posted a championship score in a one-day, one-player event that raised the phenomenal sum of $20,000 for The Rory David Deutsch Foundation. On a June day at Hillcrest Country Club, this tireless Rory supporter played 100 holes of golf to help generate funding for The Foundation, increase awareness of the disease and its affects, and galvanize continued interest in finding a cure. Backed by sponsors who donated dollars, by hole, or by score, Barry put his own money behind his game. He donated $20 for each double bogey or worse score on a hole, and $30 for every birdie he sunk. The largest donor to this clever and inherently grueling event received a free foursome at Hillcrest Country Club.
