The LifeSource Golf Classic: in memory of Terri Opp is our annual fundraising event held each September at 3M’s Tartan Park Golf Course. The event was started by the friends and family of Terri Opp, and over the past 18 years, more than $1,200,000 has been raised to support education about donation and transplantation in her memory. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, September 11, 2014.
Terri Opp was a young woman who died while waiting for a heart transplant, and though she needed the gift of life, she also gave it – Terri was a tissue and cornea donor upon her death. Terri worked for 3M, and it was her co-workers, family and friends who began this wonderful event in 1995. The contributions allow us to develop materials such as brochures, posters, workbooks and giveaways. This includes driver’s education materials which are distributed to approximately 60,000 students throughout Minnesota.
