Dear Friends of the Charity Classic,
When high-quality primary care and the attention of physicians and our community hospital are coupled with the world-class treatment available only from specialty medical centers, marvelous things can happen. Such is the case with the critical early detection with which I was provided by The Westerly Hospital medical community and the extraordinary leading-edge treatment and cure I received from the Dana-Farber Cancer Center over the course of the past two and a half years.
Having seen and benefited first-hand from the synergy of these two institutions, the first of which has been near to my heart for much of my life, and the second of which I have come to appreciate as the saver of that life, I was inspired to help both of these healthcare facilities thrive for the benefit of others.
Two years ago Bonnie Hamill and I embarked on an adventure together to benefit The Westerly Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and our efforts were rewarded with the participation and contributions from so many friends and sponsors.
I am happy to announce that we will be holding the second Charity Classic at the exclusive Shelter Harbor Golf Club on Monday June 2, 2014, to once again benefit these deserving causes. This year, the Travelers Championship, Connecticut’s PGA TOUR event will be donating their administrative services, which will allow us to be more effective in completing our mission.
A great committee has once again come together to make this event happen. What we need is YOU! As you can see from the brochure and materials, we are seeking support in the form of sponsorships at various levels and/or in attending the dinner and auction to follow this great day of golf at this extraordinary and exclusive location.
At whatever level you care to participate, please consider this my personal invitation to make a profound difference in the future of Westerly Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Institute as they continue to serve the needs of patients like me. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Most sincerely yours,
Richard C. Anthony
