The LifeSource Golf Classic: in memory of Terri Opp is our annual fundraising event held each September. The event was started by the friends and family of Terri Opp, and has raised $1.72 million since 1995 to support education about donation and transplantation in her memory. This year’s event was held on Monday, September 12, 2016 at Majestic Oaks Golf Club.
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 1996. 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.
