“We are excited to celebrate the 17th annual Links for Lupus golf tournament, which brings the community together for a day of fun while supporting our mission,” said Jenny Prince, president and CEO of LFANC. “We appreciate the generous support of LITTLE, other sponsors and our golf participants. This event enables us to help link awareness about lupus with raising funds for research, programs and support services to help the estimated 10,000 people living with lupus in the Charlotte region.”
