Nicole’s Links for Lupus Returns

Nicole's Links for Lupus is returning on May 23 for the second year to support the Lupus Foundation of America. Nicole Carfagna, a walk team captain and community ambassador who is living with lupus, organizes this fantastic golf outing on Long Island.  With Nicole's leadership and enthusiasm, the golf outing raised over $17,000 in 2016.  This year, the event will be held at the Wind Watch Golf and Country Club in Happague.

When asked about her involvement with the Lupus Foundation, Nicole stated “In the past, I tried to hide my illness as much as possible. But if I am hiding it, how many other people are? I need to speak out. I have felt the most pain in the last year, but have also had more support than I could ever imagine. Fundraising through the Lupus Foundation has given me hope that by working together, we will find a cure.” 

A full course of golfers is expected to tee off at 7:30 am on May 23.  The outing includes great golf, a putting contest, lunch, and a one-of-a-kind silent auction. Entry fees for individuals begin at $175. Hole sign and sponsorship opportunities are available.
