The Fore Batten Foundation is a charity with the goal of raising awareness and funding for increased research into Juvenile Batten Disease - an ultra-rare, fatal, inherited disorder that primarily affects the nervous system. The Foundation was founded 4 years ago by Scottsdale-based golf course architect David Kahn and his wife after learning that their twin daughters both suffered from the disease. The Foundation sponsors a silent auction each year with most donations coming from the greater golfing community, and this year's auction includes a day of golf with Rush's Alex Lifeson as described in this Golf Digest article:

... Those golf course packages, donated by clubs, club members and influential organizers from around the county, are a major reason for the auction's broad support. Available for bidding this year are golf rounds at a wide array of Golf Digest America's 100 Greatest and Second 100 Courses, such as Friars Head, Oakmont, Ballyneal, Oakland Hills, Inverness Club, Quail Hollow, Maidstone, Pikewood National, Olympic Club, Castle Pines, The Quarry at La Quinta and dozens of others, including Monterey Peninsula Country Club, where Kahn and Jackson completed a renovation of the historic Dunes course in 2015. Also up for bid are unique lots like vacation getaways in Vail and Napa Valley, and day experiences with athletes and celebrities such as Jason Kidd, Rocco Mediate, former Vice President Dan Quayle and Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson. ...

The auction kicks off next week and will run through the end of the month. You can preview the items up for bidding here, including the day of golf with Alex Lifeson. For all the details visit
