Believe it or not, summer is almost here. And with the summer comes one of the Foundation’s favorite events – the Joe Andruzzi and Friends Golf Tournament – now in it’s fifth year! A handful of golf foursomes remain, so sign up
quickly to reserve your spot!
We are thrilled to announce that current New England Patriots players Zoltan Mesko and Rob Ninkovich will be joining Joe as co-hosts of this year’s tournament. They will join New England athletes, area celebrities and golf enthusiasts in teeing off Monday, June 17 at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA.
Named one of the “Top 10 You Can Play” by Golf Magazine, Pinehills boasts two separate, 18-hole championship courses. While the course has a championship pedigree, there will be plenty of entertainment for those whose golf skills may not be up to par!
Golfers will tee off at 10 a.m. and play into late afternoon, enjoying what we expect to be a beautiful day on the course. As the day winds down, golfers will return to the clubhouse to mingle, relax and partake in a cocktail reception. Guests will then enjoy a delicious dinner, remarks from our soon-to-be-announced guest speaker and the presentation of tournament awards.
For golfers seeking a memento greater than just their scorecard, look no further. We will be hosting both a silent and live auction, offering bidders the chance to win priceless sports memorabilia, amazing entertainment packages and more.
Of course, these fundraising efforts will support a very important cause. The funds raised from this year’s tournament will ensure that the Foundation’s mission – to provide help, hope and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families by contributing financial and emotional support when it is needed most – is fulfilled throughout the year.
Putting on such an amazing event would not be possible without the support of our many sponsors who help make JAF’s dreams a reality. Returning for the second year as our Presenting Sponsor is Credit Union Kids at Heart, a fantastic group that has provided remarkable support to JAF. We are also grateful to our other generous sponsors: Millennium, Team Impact, Bob’s Discount Furniture, The Home Depot, Randstad Technologies, East Commerce Solutions, Inc. Honey Dew Donuts, Peter Zampine, and Nickerson PR.
Last year, the Joe Andruzzi & Friends Golf Tournament raised more than $180,000 to support our mission. We know that this number – and the support we provide to families – can be surpassed at this year’s tournament.
Keep an eye on your mailbox, inbox and social media networks, as more details about this fantastic event are soon to come. Until then, be sure to dust off those clubs and hit the driving range! We hope to see on the greens on Monday, June 17.
