ONSF, in conjunction with Greenwich Hospital, held its 9th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 5th, 2017 at the outstanding Stanwich Club in Greenwich, Connecticut. Golfers enjoyed lunch on the terrace followed by a round of golf. Later in the day, non-golfing friends and other supporters joined the players for cocktails, silent and live auctions and a dinner reception. Within the realm of the mission, this partnership provided an outstanding golf experience to specifically benefit ONSF clinical research, medical education and community outreach programs all of which substantially improve patient treatment and care while enhancing healthy, active living. Recently, ONSF announced a major research initiative Unraveling the Opioid Epidemic in Post-Surgical Patients. Utilizing its skills, ONSF will work diligently to resolve this significant problem that is affecting a very sizable group of individuals.
Michael Clain, MD, Adam Ercoli, Rich Granoff and Vicki Leeds Tananbaum chaired the event and were assisted by Golf Captain Chair, Jeff Mendell. The Live and Silent Auction committee, led by Amy Sethi, amassed an outstanding array of items. Charity Auctioneer, Dr. Paul Apostolides, encouraged enthusiastic Live Auction bidding, including a party catered by Watson’s with Horseneck Wines, a weekend drive in an Aston Martin from Miller Motorcars, a behind the scenes tour at The President’s Cup Golf Tournament hosted by Peter Jacobsen, a chef’s dinner party at Mill Street, training with the Yankees courtesy of the YES Network, a Curtain Bluff Resort vacation as well as other fabulous items. Super Silent and Silent Auction lots offered fabulous vacations, unique entertaining opportunities, unusual sport experiences, numerous rounds of golf at prestigious courses in and around Fairfield County, and tickets to concerts and athletic events. Music was provided by Joe D’Elia and the All Stars. The day was a huge success—raising over $250,000.
