An exhilarating day on the green took place at the Lawrence Yacht and Country Club on September 8 to benefit Ezer Mizion’s International Jewish Bone Marrow Registry. With golf clubs in hand and compassion in their hearts, golfers teed off at the most magnificent, Devereux Everett-designed golf course in Nassau County, overlooking the Reynolds Channel. The food was fabulous, an ocean breeze invigorated the atmosphere and the sun shone, filling each participant with happiness as his club struck another blow against cancer.
Ezer Mizion has saved the lives of over 1500 —many of them small children. One can only imagine the terror, the anguish as a mother watches her four-year-old play house, knowing she may never grow up to experience the ‘real thing’. A transplant can save her life. But will a DNA match be found? Before it’s too late?
September 8 was a day of victory, a day to enlarge the Registry so that more life-saving matches will be found. Every player was a winner, helping to save the lives of cancer patients whose only chance for a future is a bone marrow transplant.
Much gratitude goes to our hard-working committee members:
Stuart Alter Simeon Chiger Aaron Cynamon Alex Dembitzer Robert Eisman
Ben Englander Dudie Frankel Jason Greenberg Dr. Aaron C. Katz
Lawrence J. Levine David Lyons Manny Malekan
Mark Marmurstein Dr. David Ritholtz Marc Soskel
Ofra Konikoff, Ezer Mizion’s Chief Transplant Coordinator, spoke at the post-tournament dinner thanking the guests and sponsors for joining in this most vital mission. “The very same IDF soldiers that protected Israel during the frightening weeks of Operation Protective Edge are protecting Jews around the globe by their having joined the Registry. How are they able to join? Because people like you have contributed generously for the costly DNA testing. You have truly helped to save lives.”
