National Business Consultant, Tom Quigley, played in the tournament along with a local client and Benefits Consultants Andrew Cutter and Ken Kavensky.
As a hole sponsor, the Claimlinx staff also enjoyed playing with local celebrity and professional poker player Bill Kohler.
Proceeds from the event went towards the Jovante Woods Foundation to help fund research for asthma and raise awareness about the disease in the community.
Cincinnati Bengals star fullback Ickey Woods started the foundation after his son died at 16 years old from complications following an asthma attack.
It’s estimated about 6.8 million children and 18.7 million adults in America have asthma. It also accounts for 1.8 million visits to the emergency room each year, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The foundation aims to fund research to find ways to better manage or cure the disease. A primary focus is also to bring more attention to its dangers, as asthma attacks can be fatal without the proper care or treatment.
