On August 29, 2019, the Celiac Disease Foundation’s 7th Annual New York Golf Outing was held at the New York Country Club in New Hempstead, NY. Over 100 participants enjoyed playing 18 holes of golf and supporting the Celiac Disease Foundation through silent auctions and exciting raffles. Kelly Okun, a professional golfer who also has celiac disease held a “Beat the Pro” hole and was thrilled to spend the day combining two of her passions: golfing and raising awareness and funds for celiac disease research.
