ONSF in conjunction with Greenwich Hospital held its 7th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 8th at The Stanwich Club. It was an ideal day for golf – sunny with a light breeze and the course played beautifully. Following the tournament, the 96 golfers were joined by an additional 70 non-golfing friends and other supporters at a cocktail reception, auction and dinner.
The event was co-chaired by Michael Clain, MD, Rich Granoff and Vicki Leeds Tananbaum. On the course, ONSF President Dr. Paul Sethi was joined by Tim Hasselbeck, former NY Giants quarterback and ESPN analyst and Dan Hicks, NBC sportscaster.
Silent and live auctions were chaired by Amy Sethi and a talented committee including Lora Greene, Rebecca Karson, Lauren Mazzullo, Amanda Miller and Katherine Peden. Neurosurgeon, Dr. Paul Apostolides, served as “charity” auctioneer and encouraged lively bidding on Live Auction lots that included an African Temptations Safari Adventure, an Old Course Golf Experience in St. Andrews, Scotland, a CHANEL watch from Betteridge, a party catered by Watsons with Horseneck Wines, a weekend drive in a Bentley from Miller Motorcars and a Hermitage Club one year membership.
Golf outing sponsors included Greenwich Hospital, Constitution Surgery Centers, Bershtein, Volpe & McKeon P.C., Fairfield County Look, Greentree Toyota Scion of Danbury who provided the “hole in one” car, RBL, Houlihan Lawrence, Granoff Architects, Watson’s Catering, Fieldpoint Private, Tripp Lake Camp and Camp Takajo, Horseneck Wine and Liquor, Westfair Communications, Thomas Cleaners and many other generous businesses and individuals.
Proceeds from the event, will expand ONSF’s ability to utilize its Arthroscopy, Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Research Laboratory in order to enhance future research projects.
