Golfing to Give

October 08, 2013 | Erin Kim

When it comes to fighting cancer, the Cancer Research Institute is always working to raise money to fund more new and innovative immunotherapy research. That funding comes from a variety of places, and on Sept. 23 people took to the course to golf for a good cause.

At the 18th Annual CRI Golf Challenge, 48 people played an 18-hole round of golf at Sebonack Golf Club, raising $135,000 for cancer research. While golfing, they enjoyed beautiful views of Long Island’s Great Peconic Bay and Cold Spring Pond.

Congratulations to winners: John Dudzik, Robert Dahl, Marc Tabah, and Steve Wiggins for Low Gross (Team); Tim Ring, Duke Parker, Frank Cosentino, and Branden Parker for Low Net (Team); Liz Nolan, Lisa Cowell, Rosemary Ferrer, and Elisabeth Muhr for Second Low Net (Team); Rufus Cole for Closest to the Pin; Lisa Cowell for Longest Drive (Women); and Jim Higgins for Longest Drive (Men). Special thanks to event host, CRI trustee Carlos A. Ferrer, and a warm thanks to the wonderful staff at Sebonack.

There are so many ways to get involved with CRI that you’re sure to find a way to help that fits you. From the golf challenge to young philanthropist events or running for Team CRI, we feel fortunate to have so many people supporting what we do and telling other people about the Cancer Research Institute and cancer immunotherapy. The more people who know about CRI, the faster we can find ways to treat and prevent all cancers.
