MREA Burn Center Benefit Golf Tournament
The 13th Annual Burn Center Benefit, held on July 27, 2018 at the Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker, Minn. was tremendously successful, thanks to our members and vendor members who participated and donated. The event brings in thousands of dollars each year to support the Hennepin County Medical Center Burn Unit, Regions Hospital Burn Center, and Essentia Health Miller Dwan Burn Center.
We have several sponsorship and donation opportunities.
Our Golf Tournament Mission: To provide relief for the families of burn victims in our cooperative family when they need it most, and support the three Minnesota Burn Centers in providing the latest technologies to ensure that Minnesota residents receive the best treatment possible.
