Help Burn Survivor Programs Flourish in 2011

For people who experience the horrific trauma of being badly burned, moving forward emotionally, psychologically and socially is a daunting scenario. Fortunately there are wonderful resources available to help burn survivors of all ages, but they need your help. Below are two fun and easy ways you can support burn survivors here in Wisconsin and throughout the country.

On August 29, 2011, the 23rd Annual Burn Center Golf Invitational presented by the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety (WAFS), with assistance by Columbia-St.Mary’s Milwaukee Foundation and sponsored by the Midwest Sprinkler Industries, will be held at the Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Included with the golf outing is an evening gala.

The event raises funds for a number of causes such as Columbia-St. Mary’s Regional Burn Center, WAFS’s Summer Camp for Burn Injured Youth, Newspapers in Education’s Fire Safety Program, and other WAFS programming.

Sponsors, participants, raffle items and auction items are needed. If you can help with any of the above, please contact Chairperson Dan Gengler at (715) 256-9515 or co-chairperson Kay Luedke at (262) 253-9300.

The Phoenix Society for Burn SurvivorsOn October 9, 2011, concluding National Fire Prevention Week, members of Team Phoenix will be running the Chicago Marathon to benefit the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury through peer support, education, and advocacy.

Members of the team are listed on the Team Phoenix website. Simply enter the runner’s name you wish to support and a donation can be made on the website using a credit card. If you wish to donate via check, you may write a check made out to the Phoenix Society. Send the check to team leader Peg Paul:
