Tee Up for Brain Tumors

Donation Goal: $12,000

Tee Up for Brain Tumors is a charity golf event hosted by WINKS – With INtentional Kindness and Support, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working on behalf of brain tumor patients and caregivers in Hampton Roads.  WINKS is the only local organization focusing solely on brain tumor patients and caregivers.

Passion drives our commitment. We know firsthand the devastation of this disease. More than any other cancer, brain tumors can have lasting and life-altering physical, cognitive, and psychological impacts. Unlike some illnesses, people can go a lifetime without knowing a brain tumor patient, as the likelihood of a malignant brain tumor diagnosis is less than 1%. Unfortunately, because people give to causes close to their heart, it can be extremely difficult to rally support. WINKS is determined to help shift that dynamic by providing emotional, logistical, and financial support.

WINKS awards need-based Empathy in Action Grants and urgent requests to patients and caregivers struggling with the financial burdens of a brain tumor and distribute “Brain Tumor Power Packs” at local medical facilities to better equip patients and their caregivers to meet the challenges of a brain tumor diagnosis, empower them to make informed decisions about care, and provide information about WINKS’ services and availability to provide support. 

Other ways WINKS serves patients and caregivers:

  • Facilitate support groups
  • Directly support through phone calls and emails
  • Connect with resources
  • Provide information and resources through its website and social media
