Weston Golf Club
The Mass General 2014 Transplant Golf Classic to benefit transplant research was a huge success, attracting more than 100 people and raising more than $100,000! Gord Kluzak, former star of the Boston Bruins, was the official host. He was joined by Chandler Jones of the New England Patriots, Dr. Jim Lonborg, former Red Sox pitching great and several professional golfers. Drs. Peter Slavin, Jerry Austen and David Torchiana also attended, along with other senior executives from MGH and Partners.
The event consisted of a golf outing during the day and an evening reception with physician and patient speakers. Their poignant remarks reminded everyone why transplant research is so important. In addition, the Transplant Center awarded the Sandy Cushman Patient Service Award to Brian Primack for his extraordinary dedication to promoting organ donation and transplantation.
For the fifth consecutive year, Heidi and Scott Schuster served as presenting sponsors for the event. The planning committee, headed by Louise Hersum, did a wonderful job coordinating the entire day. In addition, Drs. James Markmann and Joren Madsen were instrumental in making it a success. Next year’s tournament is scheduled for Monday, July 20, 2015!
