To our valued Patients and Families,
It has been part of the tradition of this practice to raise funds for cancer research and cancer care through the American Cancer Society. I am proud to say that this is my 15th year chairing the American Cancer Society’s Doctors of Distinction Golf Invitational. It will be held on Tuesday, September 20th at Friar’s Head, a truly unique course on Long Island and a treat to play. The full details of the event, the honoree and ways to participate can be found on the event website!
This year’s honoree is Dr. Matthew Weiss, Deputy Physician-in-Chief and Director of Surgical Oncology for the Northwell Cancer Institute and a renowned pancreatic cancer surgeon and researcher who was recruited a few years ago from Johns Hopkins. As you know, pancreatic cancer remains a formidable disease, and the American Cancer Society is the 2nd largest source of funding for scientific research apart from the federal government. Sadly, we all know someone who has passed from a difficult to treat condition.
If you cannot play that day, or if you are not a golfer, please consider making a contribution, purchasing a tee sign, a journal ad or a sponsorship HERE
Or you can email Katie Goepfrich Schafer at the ACS: or call (631) 861-3075
If you are interested in playing, please let me or Katie know or register.
You will be among friends and with your help we will sell out soon. Unlike many large outings, we are a boutique event that fields 18 foursomes, which means you play your ball into the hole in an enjoyable pace of play.
Not to mention the fantastic views and the great meal at the end!
Randall S. Feingold, M.D., F.A.C.S.
