Jordan Smelski Foundation Golf Tournament
Saturday, May 6, 2017 at The Rosen Shingle Creek
The Third Annual Jordan Smelski Foundation Golf Tournament is held in memory of Jordan Smelski. Jordan passed away on July 2, 2014 to primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). He was 11 years old. Jordan contracted the amoeba Naegleria fowleri from swimming in hot springs in Costa Rica while on vacation. PAM is 97% fatal, yet 100% preventable.
*All proceeds go toward amoeba awareness, training, and research. The Jordan Smelski Foundation is partnering with All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine and Florida Hospital to conduct research in four (4) specific areas related to PAM and to change the healthcare approach in possible PAM case.
