Awareness Cup

The Joan L. Kidd MD Awareness Cup has been adopted by the World Senior Golf Federation and will hereafter be presented at the annual Awards Gala of the World Senior Golf Championships each year as the Joan L Kidd MD Goodwill Cup. The World Senior Golf Federation is an international golf competition among 28 member nations, which has been conducted annually for the last six decades. Joan participated in the competition and joined in fellowship with other competitors from around the world. We at the Continuum are humbled and pleased that the World Senior Golf Federation has chosen to honor her in this way.

Launch Event

An Evening of Hope

The launch event of the Continuum was held recently at the Orlando Museum of Art with a large turnout. After a brief reception, the evening program included a presentation of the Mission of the Continuum, followed by a one time, live recorded concert by the Beautiful Music Orchestra with Voices, performing some of Dr. Joan Kidd’s favorite music. Members who support the work of the Continuum receive significant benefits in the form of a national merchant discount program.
