Swing for Sharon raises cancer awareness
To the Editor:
Jimmy Fund Golf extends its sincerest thanks to the organizers and sponsors of Swing for Sharon held on July 28, at the East Greenwich Golf Course. Special recognition and appreciation goes to Frank Venezia of West Warwick and the committee who organized the third annual event.
The dedicated sponsors, participants and volunteers helped raise critical funds to support lifesaving cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Swing for Sharon was one of the many golf tournaments held in 2012 to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber. The presenting sponsors for Jimmy Fund Golf’s 2012 season are American Airlines, Callaway, CHAMP Spikes, Dunkin’ Donuts, Forty Seven Brand, HomeGoods, The International Golf Club and Wicked Local.
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!
