Annual golf outing has raised more than $12 million for patient programs, equipment and services.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
The Jerry Segal Classic to benefit the patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital returns on September 19 at The ACE Club and Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania. Over the past 25 years, the Classic, organized by the Friends of Jerry Segal, has raised more than $12 million for programs and services designed to support patients and their families during their time at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.
The Segal Classic is a labor of love, my way of supporting the patients and families of Magee throughout their recovery journey, said Jerry Segal, Founder of The Jerry Segal Classic and former patient of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. While in Magee recovering from a spinal cord injury, I made a promise that I would give back to the Hospital as much as they gave to me. The Segal Classic is this promise in action.
Because The Jerry Segal Classic is organized completely by volunteers, every penny raised at the event goes directly to the patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. These funds have allowed for the development of a number of patient programs and services, including:
The funds raised each year through The Jerry Segal Classic have a very real impact on our patients and their families, said Dr. Jack Carroll, President and CEO of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. We are sincerely grateful to Jerry, the Friends of Jerry Segal and our community for their dedication to our mission and their continued support year after year.
The Classic begins with shotgun starts at 10:30 a.m. at The ACE Club and 11:15 a.m. at Green Valley Country Club. The event includes brunch, golf, a cocktail hour with grand hors doeuvres, and live and silent auctions.
