Thank you from Jimmy Fund Golf
Jimmy Fund Golf extends a sincere thank you to the organizers and sponsors of the Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament/Jeffrey Vinick Memorial, which took place on June 14 at Crestview Country Club, Ellington Ridge Country Club, The Ranch Golf Club, Wintonbury Hills Golf Course in Agawam, Ellington, Conn., Southwick and Bloomfield, Conn.
Special recognition and appreciation goes to Ellen Shapiro of Longmeadow, who organized the 31st annual event.
The dedicated sponsors, participants, and volunteers helped raise critical funds in memory of Jeffrey Vinick to support lifesaving cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In 2009, this tournament raised over $420,000 to support the groundbreaking work of Dana-Farber's doctors and researchers.
2010 marks the 28th year of Jimmy Fund Golf, one of the country's largest golf programs for charity. From traditional golf tournaments and country club member events to mini-golf tournaments and all day golf marathons, volunteers create golf fundraisers that combine their love of the sport with their desire to support the fight against cancer. Each event is an incredibly rewarding and fun way to support a great cause!
The Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament/Jeffrey Vinick Memorial was one of the many golf tournaments that will take place in 2010 to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber. American Airlines, Callaway Golf, Dunkin' Donuts, Forty Seven Brand, the International Golf Club and GateHouse Media New England are the presenting sponsors of Jimmy Fund Golf. Nearly $74 million has been raised by these dedicated volunteers and sponsors since 1983.
