Scarsdale, NY (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
More than 5,000 people were diagnosed with lymphoma – the most common form of blood cancer – in New York last year alone. To raise critical funds for blood cancer research, the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and serving the lymphoma community through a comprehensive series of education programs, outreach initiatives and patient services – will host its 2014 LRF Golf Invitational on Monday, May 19 at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, New York. Last year, the Invitational raised more than $280,000 to support the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s mission to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by the disease.
“The Lymphoma Research Foundation is honored to host its annual Golf Invitational, once again, at the world-renowned Quaker Ridge Golf Club,” said Steven J. Prince, LRF Chairman of the Board. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for golf enthusiasts of all levels to enjoy a fun-filled day on one of the best golf courses in the world, while raising awareness and funds for life-changing lymphoma research.”
The LRF Golf Invitational will begin at 10:45 am. Participants will enjoy a day out on the course, as well as lunch and a cocktail reception. Foursome tickets for the LRF Golf Invitational are available for $6,000, and tournament sponsor tickets are available for $10,000. All proceeds from the event will support LRF’s mission to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by the disease.
