Delaware Park Donates $25,000 to MS Delaware for Multiple Sclerosis Research and Programs

I had no idea that Delaware Park was a supporter of the MS Society, so was pleased to read this news release.

Delaware Park continues its long-time support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Delaware Chapter with a $25,000 contribution. Delaware Park has contributed more than $300,000 to the organization in the last decade.

Wilmington, Del. (PRWEB) July 11, 2008 -- Delaware Park recently contributed $25,000 to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Delaware Chapter, bringing its total support for the organization to more than $300,000 since 1999.
"We strongly believe in the work of the MS Society and are pleased that we can support their fight to free the world of this crippling disease," said William M. Rickman, Jr., president of Delaware Park.

In addition to its contribution, Delaware Park's White Clay Creek Country Club recently hosted the MS Delaware Golf Tournament. The June 6 tournament raised more than $100,000 for the organization.

"They are very active and loyal supporters," Cowperthwait said.
