The goal is to send a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, dentists, orthodontists, nurses, speech therapists and other volunteers who will serve approximately 50 cases including children with cleft lips, cleft palates, absent ears and other facial deformities. The event is Monday, Oct. 20 at Catta Verdera Golf Club in Lincoln. Check in is 10 a.m. The entry fee is $150, which includes golf fees, cart, tee prizes, a boxed lunch and a barbecue dinner.
