Our annual event is held in honor of Carl Inserra who passed away in 1987. He lived life to the fullest, enjoying every moment. His greatest joy was the birth of his son, Carl Jr. Unfortunately, after a two-year courageous battle with leukemia and two bone marrow transplants at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, Washington, Carl succumbed to this dreaded disease. Carl’s love for life and the support he received from his family, friends and associates gave us the inspiration to begin this fundraising event to benefit others in memory of Carl.

We are so grateful for your ongoing support and commitment to helping others and honoring the memory of Carl.
