'Bobbi Salmon' Fundraiser At Links Raises 16K For Rare Disease

Posted: Updated:

POST FALLS, Idaho - The 7th Annual Scleroderma/Bobbi Salmon fundraiser was another huge success at the Links Golf Course this year.

Links Head Golf Pro Patti Marquis' friend and fellow golf professional Bobbi Salmon (pictured on left) was diagnosed with scleroderma almost 10 years ago. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissue.

The disease which literally means "hard skin," can cause thickening and tightening of the skin as well as serious damage to internal organs. It's a life threatening illness and this event has raised over 70k in the past 7 years.

This year's Scleroderma/Bobbi Salmon event raised more than $16,000. Congratulations to Patti Marquis for hosting another successful event, and a big thank you to all who participated!
