A great day of Golf!
On a day that looked like golf events would be cancelled due to rain, the skies miraculously cleared just in time for the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation’s (SWCRF) 31st Annual Golf Tournament on July 11 at The Creek in Locust Valley, New York.
In its 31-year history, this event has raised close to $5 million. Just think of how much cancer research the SWCRF has been able to fund after great days of golf like this one.
This year, a total of 90 golfers came out to support the SWCRF, raising almost $200,000 for cancer research. Excitement rippled through The Creek when golfer Charlie Dorego made his first hole-in-one ever—on the 8th hole, which came with a two-year lease on a BMW, courtesy of Rallye Motors. Mr. Dorego is SVP/General Counsel at Glenwood Management Corp., one of New York City’s largest owner/builders of luxury rental apartments.
The annual golf tournament, generously hosted by Tony and Cynthia Shogren, was held in honor of SWCRF Board Member Gary Jacob, Executive Vice President of Glenwood Management Corp. He and SWCRF Board Member Dennis Herman, President of Beekman International Center, gathered more than 20 foursomes, all eager to play the course. Those who attended the dinner/reception were moved by the Board Members’ warm remarks.
The event was co-sponsored by the Max Cure Foundation. Event sponsors included Titan Advisors, Gary Jacob, The Litwin Foundation, Bank of America, Greenberg Traurig, LLP, M&T Bank, Cynthia and Tony Shogren, Wells Fargo and Ms. Cynthia Neiditch, Counsel Abstract. Edward Kaminsky and Castle Oil supplied golf balls. A book, On Par, The Everyday Golfer’s Survival Guide by New York Times golf writer Bill Pennington, was given to every player, thanks to a donation by Scott Waxman, Bruce Nichols and Susan Canavan at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. More than 40 others sponsored tees, holes, golf carts and the putting green.
Golfers were treated to brunch, a mid-game 8th hole barbeque and a lobster and steak dinner overlooking the Sound, complete with a perfect July sunset.
