St. Paul, Minn. (June 20, 2017) – Ergodyne announced today their 20th and final round of 65 Roses: A Tenacious Tournament™. Two decades in, the premiere event has raised nearly 4 million dollars to support cystic fibrosis research. Played at the top-rated Legends Golf Club in Prior Lake, Minnesota, the 65 Roses Golf Classic provides a unique opportunity to connect with friends, clients, as well as existing and potential customers.

For the past two decades, leading manufacturers, distributors, reps, and end users from around the country have come together to raise money for the Minnesota/Dakotas chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). Primary sponsors of this year’s tournament include 3M, ISK Industries, JDF Associates, Superior Third Party Logistics, Sqwincher, and the Votel Family Foundation.

“It’s been our privilege to host this event for the past two decades,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne, “The medical advancements that have been made for CF are nothing short of extraordinary and it wouldn’t be possible without events like these. We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our beloved safety community in supporting us in our quest.”

The last event will take place on Monday, July 17, 2017.

About Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. For more information on cystic fibrosis, call (800) FIGHT CF or visit the website at: www.cff.org.
