Fun at The 5th Annual ONS Foundation Golf Outing

The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education, in conjunction with Greenwich Hospital, held its 5th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 10th at The Stanwich Club. The event was co-chaired by Michael Clain, MD, Rich Granoff and Vicki ONS_GolfOuting13_Invite_3.indd Leeds Tananbaum. Despite the rain, 27 foursomes played the beautiful championship course after indulging in a wonderful buffet lunch.

Following the tournament, golfers, non-golfing friends and other supporters attended a cocktail reception, auction and dinner. Silent and live auctions were co-chaired by Rebecca Karson, Lauren Mazzullo and Amy Sethi. Charity auctioneer, Philae Knight of Phillips auction house, encouraged lively bidding on Live Auction lots. Golf outing sponsors included Greenwich Hospital, Constitution Surgery Centers, Bershtein, Volpe & McKeon P.C., media sponsor Serendipty, Field Point Bank, Greentree Toyota Scion of Danbury who provided the “hole in one” car, Insurance Exchange, Granoff Architects, XPLOR, Watson’s Catering, New England Orthotics and Prosthetic Systems, Tripp Lake Camp and Camp Takajo, Horseneck Wine and Liquor, Thomas Laundry and Cleaners and many other generous businesses and individuals.

Proceeds from the 2013 event will benefit ONS Foundation research, education, and surgical fellowship programs. To strengthen the alliance already shared with Greenwich Hospital, the ONS Foundation, in partnership with the Yale University fellowship program, will grant training to an orthopaedic surgeon who seeks expertise in shoulder and elbow surgery. ONS Foundation President, Dr. Paul Sethi said, “…the ultimate goal is to create a comprehensive experience into the diagnosis and treatment of problems related to the upper extremities.”
