22 Years of Fighting for the Cure

On September 9, the firm hosted its 22nd Annual Golf Outing benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) at Westwood Country Club in Vienna. Art Walsh, the golfers, and guests could not have asked for a brighter day to raise money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Golfers enjoyed a full day on the course and finished their rounds just in time for the raffle and live auction. This year the event raised over $80,000, increasing the total amount raised over the past 21 years to approximately $1.6 million.

On behalf of Art Walsh, the firm would like to thank clients, friends, and family who participated in this year’s event and donated generously to JDRF. Online donations to JDRF can still be made by visiting the firm’s fundraising site. Contributions are 100% tax-deductible.

JDRF was founded by parents determined to find a cure for their children with T1D. JDRF has expanded through grassroots fundraising and advocacy efforts to become a powerhouse in the scientific community with more than 100 U.S. locations and six international affiliates. JDRF has funded more than $2 billion in research to date and has made significant progress in understanding and fighting the disease. Our firm is proud to work with JDRF and continue to help find the cure for T1D.
