The site of the Chris Elliott Fund's annual Golf Tournament, Dinner & Auction


The Chris Elliott Fund for Glioblastoma is looking for experienced volunteers to seek out and solicit monetary grants and corporate sponsorships specific to our fundraising events, including our annual Golf Tournament, Dinner & Auction and Theresa Ledoux-Peterson Tribute Bike Ride.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Meet as needed and communicate regularly with the Sponsorships Chair and/or Executive Director.
  • Research local and national organizations and analyze them to identify likely sponsorship sources.
  • Prepare and submit persuasive letters of inquiry, grant applications and formal sponsorship proposals.
  • Meet face-to-face with potential sponsors as needed OR assist in arranging a meeting between potential sponsors and Sponsorships Chair.
  • Keep in contact via phone and email with potential sponsors during their review of a submitted proposal in order to provide additional supportive materials as necessary.

CEF is currently being acknowledged nationally for funding a portion of the research that has now identified what genes cause Glioblastoma. Please help us with Phase II, which is to fund raise for the purpose of prioritizing these genes so that ultimately, drugs can be developed that will target these genes.

The Chris Elliott Fund is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise the funds necessary to find a cure for the deadly Glioblastoma and other brain tumors; promote education and awareness of this under-funded disease; provide education and resources for brain cancer patients and their families; and to act as the voice for brain cancer patients who cannot fight for themselves.
