Letter: Jimmy Fund Classic a success at BHCC
Jimmy Fund Golf extends its sincerest thanks to the organizers and sponsors of the Paul Dowd Jimmy Fund Golf Classic held on June 14 at Berkshire Hills Country Club in Pittsfield. Special recognition and appreciation goes to Bob Tucker of Pittsfield, and the committee that organized the 34th annual event.
The dedicated sponsors, participants, and volunteers helped raise critical funds to support the lifesaving mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The Paul Dowd Jimmy Fund Golf Classic is one of more than 160 golf tournaments held in 2017 to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund, which supports patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber.
Now in its 35th year, Jimmy Fund Golf has raised more than $115 million to support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. From 18-hole golf tournaments to mini-golf events and day-long golf marathons, golfers of all ages and skill levels can conquer cancer through Jimmy Fund Golf.
