Traditionally held in the spring, this year’s David Allen Company Golf MS Tournament, which has benefited the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for the past 15 years, will for the first time be held in the fall.

The 16th annual charity event will be held Friday, September 17 at 10 a.m. at the Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club in Gainesville, VA. Participants will partake in a complete program of special events, including 18 holes of golf, lunch, and raffle prizes, and will conclude with an awards banquet. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. The tournament was first organized by husband and wife, Phil and Kathy Halcomb. Phil is the Virginia Vice President of the David Allen Company, which focuses on design and installation for ceramic tile, marble, stone, terrazzo, and epoxy flooring. Kathy was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis over 20 years ago.

In its first year, the tournament raised $800 to support local programs and services for people affected by MS. Over the years, the tournament has continued to grow, as well as the work of the National Capital Chapter. In the past five years alone, the tournament has raised over $290,000 to support the Chapter’s work in the areas of counseling, education, employment, information and referral, advocacy, and emergency financial assistance for individuals and families affected by MS.

The cost of registration is $325 for a single player and $1,300 for a foursome. For more information about the golf tournament, sponsorship opportunities or to register, contact Susan Allen at the David Allen Company at (703) 690-4422.
