Family in Roxbury Hopes Golfers Will 
"Raise the Roof" for Spina Bifida Awareness
Golfers will tee off September 26 at the Berkshire Valley Golf Course in Oak Ridge to raise money for Levi Spencer, a 4-year-old Roxbury native born with spina bifida, a birth defect that paralyzed him from the hips down.

The first annual Golf Scramble is one of a series of fundraisers held as part of "Raising the Roof for Levi," an online fundraiser created by Spencer family supporters, known as Team Levi, that will help finance an estimated $100,000 of handicap-friendly renovations at the Spencers' Succasunna home.

These events are "just for raising awareness about the birth defect spina bifida," which is the family's major goal, said Levi's mom, Jillian Spencer. Her young son's condition is a rare one; less than 200,000 cases occur annually in the U.S.

Participants will golf in groups of four. Each group will kick off the event at one of the course's 18 holes, then rotate once everyone sinks their shots. Families and businesses alike can sponsor a hole, which will feature a sign or plaque with their names. Sponsors can enjoy gold, silver or bronze status, which offer different advertising opportunities depending on the amount donated.

Check Your Honeywell Settings!
Don't wait until severe weather hits to check your settings. You may want to change your time time settings from Midnight to Midnight and have more than one way of being contacted...i.e. phone call/text message and or email.  This way if the phone lines are down/circuits are busy etc., you are covered.
