ST. LOUIS (May 5, 2015) – In honor of a bright, charming 17-year-old, The Lowenbaum Partnership is thrilled to be the title sponsor for Golf Fore! Ellie.

Ellie McCool has Rett syndrome, a unique neurological disorder that causes problems in brain function that are responsible for cognitive, sensory, emotional, motor and autonomic function. They can include learning, speech, sensory sensations, mood, movement, breathing, cardiac function and even chewing swallowing and digestion.

The Lowenbaum Partnership’s Michael Lowenbaum is co-chairing the June 12 event with Kelly Gessert and Ellie’s parents, Dave and Mickie McCool. To benefit the Rett Spectrum Clinic at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the four-person scramble and dinner auction will be held at The Missouri Bluffs Golf Club in St. Charles, Mo.
