The recent Cathleen’s Cause Golf Tournament, an annual event founded by Cresa Managing Principal Paul Herzog, raised $25,000, bringing the total amount raised for the Brain Injury Alliance Colorado over the last five years to more than $100,000.

BIAC is a nonprofit organization that provides guidance, resources, support and education to survivors of traumatic brain injury, their families and providers.

Herzog founded Cathleen’s Cause Golf Tournament in 2013 in honor of his wife, Cathleen Schmidt, who suffered a severe TBI from a fall in their home. After Schmidt’s death in 2016, he has continued to host the event with 100 percent of the proceeds going to benefit the BIAC.

“As we cared for Cathleen in her recovery, we discovered the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado, an incredible, caring nonprofit organization that provides invaluable resources,” said Herzog. “During that time, the BIAC supported our efforts to raise the much-needed funds for Cathleen’s 24/7 medical care. By continuing the event in her honor, we hope to spread awareness and support the BIAC in their ongoing mission.”

This year’s tournament, held May 21, included 86 golfers, making it the largest to date. The event was sponsored by Beacon Capital, Cresa, EJCM, Etkin Johnson, Unique Properties, Hines, Haworth, Purvis Gray Thomson, Chalet Hatten & Banker, Cyndy & Tom Marsh, Lincoln Properties and Ringsby Realty.
