Atlanta Golf Classic pancreatic cancer fundraiser set for Oct. 3
August 15, 2011,
ATLANTA — The Seena Magowitz Foundation kicks off its fall fundraising drive for pancreatic cancer research with a golf event here.
The foundation presents Howard Young's Atlanta Golf Classic, set for Monday, Oct. 3, at the Capital City Crabapple Golf Club in Alpharetta, Ga.
All proceeds from the event support the TGen Foundation's globalCure Initiative, which funds pancreatic cancer research.
The Atlanta Golf Classic is set for 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. An awards lunch follows from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The tournament field is limited to 30 teams and 120 golfers. Non-golfers are invited to the awards luncheon.
Roger Magowitz, president of the Seena Magowitz Foundation, said the Atlanta event should draw a good crowd.
"Last year we had a strong turnout in Atlanta for this event, and we are expecting another strong showing by those who support our fight against pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest types of cancer," he said.
The Seena Magowitz Foundation is named for Magowitz's mother, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer.
The Atlanta event will be followed by the main event on the Seena Magowitz Foundation's calendar: The 2011 Seena Magowitz Celebrity Golf Classic. It is set for Dec. 2-4 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, a new venue for the event.
That event, which features the golf tournament on Saturday, Dec. 3, kicks off with various events on Dec. 2 including a welcome reception from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Magowitz is expecting the biggest turnout ever for that event.
"Attendance and support for the Seena Magowitz Celebrity Golf Classic grow each year," he noted. "Last year we raised more than $2 million and had more than 400 attendees at the event. We are hoping to top those totals this year."
