Due to Big Papi's ongoing treatment and an expected long road to recovery, the David Ortiz Children's Fund will be holding its annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic in a new temporary location for 2019 - in Miami, Florida, close to David’s home.
David has set an ambitious goal for this year’s event – to raise $2M to create the only pediatric catheterization lab in the DR.
Over 2,000 children are born each year in the Dominican Republic with congenital heart disease, and without surgery, about 25% will die.
Before they can have that surgery, the majority of these children require catheterization – having a long thin tube inserted into an artery that runs to their heart. There is not a cath lab available to them at present, and many children have died as a result.
Join us for this year’s amazing event and help support Big Papi in meeting this goal.
We thank all of our supporters for their patience amidst so many changes, and extend our gratitude to all of you who continue to send endless well-wishes, prayers and donations to the Fund in David's name.
