11th Annual Golf Tournament Raises Over $350K for JAF

JAF Golf 2019 Blog Feature ImageOn Monday, June 24, 2019, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, its supporters, and a host of local athletes and celebrities, came together at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass. for the 11th Annual Joe Andruzzi & Friends Golf Tournament to have a day of fun out on the links and to raise crucial funds in support of New England cancer patients.

By the end of the day, over $350,000 had been raised, allowing the Foundation to provide financial assistance to hundreds of New England cancer patients and their family members in the months to come. This also means that, through 11 years, our golf tournament has raised over $2.5 million.

Join Bridge Builders and Become a Monthly Donor Today

JAF Bridge Builder Logo - Monthly Giving Program - Joe Andruzzi FoundationWhile undergoing cancer treatment – between hospital stays and returning home – patients and their families need help bridging the gap between paychecks. Through JAF’s monthly giving programBridge Builders – you can join a group of individuals committing to provide sustainable financial support to New England families in cancer treatment so they can stay in their homes, keep their heat and lights on, and safely get to their treatment appointments.

When you commit to a monthly donation (here), you are providing the Joe Andruzzi Foundation with steady, reliable funding. Just as a bridge is built piece by piece by many hands, your contribution will combine each month with the gifts of fellow JAF Bridge Builders to carry New England cancer patients and their families across times of financial distress.

When you become a JAF Bridge Builder, you’ll receive…

  • Quarterly e-newsletter updates about the patients and families you’re supporting.
  • Exclusive early access to JAF events.
  • For a monthly gift of as little as $15, your choice of a commemorative magnet or keychain.

Together, we can build bridges for families facing cancer. Click here to learn more about this exciting program.
