On Monday August 9th, the Myocarditis Foundation held its “14th Annual Golf Outing” at Arcola Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey. We had a record number of golfers and we raised in excess of $175,000. The date for the 2022 event has not been set yet. We will be holding it again at Arcola, a world class golf course with its spectacular views of New York City.
The day started with a shopping event for each player at Graysons’ and a Cigar Rolling demonstration. Dr. Leslie Cooper, Co-Founder of the Myocarditis Foundation had breakfast with the players before the shotgun start. Lunch was provided at various stations throughout the course. Unfortunately, no one was able to sink a “hole in one” to win the 2021 GMC Sierra that was provided courtesy of Quality Auto, but there was much laughter and camaraderie going on throughout the day. Joel Aranson, “Committee Emeritus, and Ambassador of good will for the event”, drove around the course with Candace Moose, Co-Founder, meeting and greeting all the players. There were many return supporters as well as a number of new ones to the event.
The evening ended with a cocktail hour, sumptuous dinner, and awards ceremony. There was a Live Auction and Silent Auction, with such prizes as foursomes to various elite golf clubs, sporting events, and resort trips.
Genevieve Rumore, Executive Director, spoke about how the Foundation helps others, some of the latest Research that is being carried out, and how to self-advocate for potential diagnosis of the disease.
The Myocarditis Foundation would like to thank all the participants and donors for all the support that you have shown to such an important cause. A special thanks to our corporate sponsors as their support is invaluable to the Foundation’s mission. We look forward to seeing you all again at our 2022 event. Stay tuned for the date!
