10th ANNUAL CELEBRITY GOLF EVENT A HUGE SUCCESS

Print

 

Every hour of every day one man in the U.S. is diagnosed with testicular cancer. On Monday, August 5, sports legends, television and radio personalities, and hundreds of participants joined the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation at the PIX11/Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation 10th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner at Sleepy Hollow Country Club, raising almost $200,000 to help fight the disease. Honorees for this special anniversary event included former NHL player, NY Rangers announcer and testicular cancer survivor Joe Micheletti; longtime supporter Howard Margolies of United Healthcare; and rock critic, historian and talk show host Dave Marsh. PIX11 Weather Expert Mr. G and reporter/anchor Kirstin Cole were the evening’s emcees. Porsche of Larchmont sponsored the Hole in One.

Participants rubbed elbows with local celebrities, enjoyed a fabulous day of golf and supported a great cause. “Bringing this very special 10th anniversary event to Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Westchester County was truly a homecoming for the Foundation. This was both a time to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sean’s tragic passing, and an opportunity to celebrate 10 years of raising awareness and saving lives” said Rob Eccles, the Foundation’s Executive Director.

About Testicular CancerTesticular cancer is the most common cancer in men 15 – 35 years old, and incidence rates have been steadily increasing for decades. It is highly treatable—in fact, 99% curable—when found and treated in its earliest stages. In the case of testicular cancer, awareness truly is the cure.

About the FoundationThe Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation is dedicated to raising Awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment, providing Answers, and promoting Action in the fight against testicular cancer. The foundation was formed in 2003 in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award winning sportscaster and pre-game announcer for the NY Mets. Sean died at the age of 37 from testicular cancer. Headquartered in New York City, the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, recognized nationally as a key resource in the fight against testicular cancer.
