SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - Seton Hall men's golf head coach Clay White announced today the start of the "Birdies for Brooke" campaign. For every birdie that the team records this season, $2 will be pledged to the campaign.
Brooke Rosenberg is Coach White's niece. This July, the 2-year old was diagnosed with leukemia. Over the next three months she will undergo a cycle of chemotherapy treatments followed by a bone marrow transplant.
"This summer my wife and I received a call from her sister who told us that our two-year old niece might have leukemia," White said. "It was confirmed a couple of days later and Brooke was immediately admitted to the hospital for what will be a three month cycle of chemo treatments followed by a bone marrow transplant. We decided to pledge $2 for every birdie the Seton Hall men's golf team makes this fall to help with the battle that Brooke has already begun. We are playing in six events this fall, four (54-hole) and two (36-hole), for a total of 16 rounds of golf. In the past, we have averaged about 12-14 birdies per round. Obviously, I am hoping we make more birdies this year, not only for Brooke, but also for our team."
In addition to raising funds for each birdie recorded, the men's golf team is soliciting donations to assist Brooke in her battle against the disease.
