Friday, April 19 is the deadline to sign up for the 8th annual Arkansas Donor Family Council Charity Golf Tournament, director Linda Weadock said last Thursday.

A benefit for Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency, the four-person scramble will be Thursday, April 25 at Balboa Golf Course.

Entry fee for a four-member team is $400.

Arkansas Donor Family Council volunteers include members of donor families, transplant recipients and volunteers who work to provide support for other donor families and to promote organ- and tissue-donation awareness.

More than 123,000 Americans are on a waiting list for kidney, heart, liver or other vital organs.
ARORA says an average of one patient is added to the waiting list every 10 minutes; 21 die each day while waiting for an organ.

ARKDFC is a 501(c)(3) organization supporting  donor families in times of need and also sponsoring families and transplant recipients to attend national events.
