Thanks to your generosity and support of the Luke TATSU Johnson Foundation, our 2019 Golf & Dinner event was a huge success!  


We are thrilled to announce that we donated $75,000 to Rally Foundation to sponsor 3 research grants and awarded $4,000 in scholarships to the qualifying Wilson Boys & Girls Golf team seniors. 


In total, this is a 25% increase over last year's fundraising efforts and will allow us to fund up to 3 pediatric cancer research grants.


Thank you for your love and generous support.


Through the work of the Luke TATSU Johnson Foundation, we celebrate Luke’s life while expanding educational opportunities and lending a hand to other young people and families facing a diagnosis of childhood cancer.
