Allie and Friends Golf Classic

Midland Metal Products once again took an active role in the 5th annual Ryan Diem's Allie and Friends Golf Classic, which took place on May 4th, 2009 in Chicago and raised over $130,000.

The golf event raises awareness and much needed money for a rare form of pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer found in infants and the most common extracranial solid tumor found in children. There is very little known about why neuroblastoma occurs, or about what factors increase the risk for occurrence. There is no known cure. Every sixteen hours a child with neuroblastoma dies.

With the help of Chicago native and Indianapolis Colt Ryan Diem, Allie and Friends has been able to raise over $600,000 of funding to support the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation based in Bloomingdale, IL.

many different levels of sponsorship available for the 2010 event to take place
next May.
