2016 Claxton Classic Golf Tournament

2016ClaxtonClassicGolfTournamentMy buddy and co-founder, Bill Sabia, and I have been pretty much the ground crew on keeping the Claxton going for a lot of years. We had about 136 golfers this year with over 150 in attendance so it was a good crowd! We played this year at a beautiful private country club, The Country Club of Woodmore in Mitchellville, MD. A very nice facility and the day turned out to be sunny and warm; good golf weather!

As of now, our donation will be something like $5,000 and we still have one more event coming up on September 10th. That will be our 3rd Annual “Leinenkugel Beer Garden ‘Oktoberfest’ party for FARA.” We’re hoping for a great turnout! 



“Once again the "Claxton Classic" to support FARA was another GREAT Outing!!! The course at Woodmore was outstanding and the services provided were great! It was great to see our girl Erin and our newest friend Kyle Bryant. I am also very excited to hear about the progress being made toward a cure! It was a proud day indeed to play in the Claxton again and to support FARA. Such a great combination!!! Always my Very BEST!!!” Highest Regards, Barry Siegle

“Erin and the family are just so excited about the progress made toward a cure, largely through the efforts of FARA. And the Claxton Classic had been a big part of the effort through all the events. We're so proud to be associated with both organizations.” -The Kiernan’s

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassadors are a united team of patient volunteers living with FA who are committed to supporting FARA in the search for a treatment and cure.
Together we seek to know more about FA, and FARA so we can be prepared to represent the community when the opportunity arises; speaking at events, to volunteers, potential donors, scientific groups, pharma partners, media interviews and other awareness and fundraising opportunities. We believe support is key to continued success toward our ultimate goal of treatment and a cure. Participants in the FARA Ambassador Program are passionate about building and upholding relationships within the FA community.
The FARA Ambassadors are positive, supportive, peer representatives for the FA community, actively raising awareness and funds for FARA. To learn more about the FARA Ambassador Program or to have a FARA Ambassador speak at your event, please contact:
