On June 11, more than 160 golfers were met with sunny skies and pristine fairways at Canoe Brook Country Club for the 28thAnnual Overlook Foundation Golf Tournament. The outing raised $130,000 for the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center at Overlook, with special thanks to longtime tournament sponsor, Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Golfers warmed up on the driving range, stretched with Overlook physical therapists, and enjoyed a buffet lunch before teeing off. Both of Canoe Brook’s renowned championship courses were open exclusively to our golfers, where they had opportunities to win a luxury automobile or take home some cash prizes. After a near-perfect day on the course, attendees were welcomed back to the beautifully renovated clubhouse for cocktails, dinner and exciting silent and live auctions. The heart of the program came from a brief update on the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center at Overlook from Dr. Yaron Moshel, co-director of the Center.
As always, golf prizes were a highlight of the dinner, rewarding lowest net scores, longest drives, and closest to the pin. Top-finishing foursomes on the North and South courses respectively were: Matt Campion, Luke Szerbinski, Rob Ramirez, and Michael Ramirez; and Jackie Rider, Ethan Tse, Chiming Tse, and Rick Kalfayan. The grand prize, the Anthony F. Coppola, MD Memorial Award, was presented to Joseph Willett for the lowest individual gross score.
The golf tournament wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of all our donors, sponsors, golfers, and volunteers. We sincerely appreciate your time, energy, and passion!
