Hebrew SeniorLife Golf Tournament Benefits COVID-19 Response
Community Support for Senior Care, Research, and Teaching
BOSTON – Hebrew SeniorLife’s annual golf tournament looked a little different this year, following new guidelines for safe play with masks and scheduled tee times to allow for social distancing. Held at the Belmont Country Club, the event successfully raised funds to support the Hebrew SeniorLife COVID-19 Senior Response Fund. Proceeds will support initiatives and expenses such as purchasing critical personal protective equipment for front-line staff, expanding programs to promote the emotional well-being of patients during the pandemic, and pursuing research to treat COVID-19 and the mental health ramifications of social isolation.
The 2020 Golf Committee comprised a dedicated group of volunteer leaders that included Reese Genser of Newton as the Committee Chair, along with Jeffrey Drucker of Chestnut Hill, Mira Genser Woods of Waban, Todd Finard of Weston, and Jeff Winnick of Natick.
Katelyn Quynn, Chief Development Officer and Vice President, Board Relations at Hebrew SeniorLife, said, “It was heartening to see everyone come together to support Hebrew SeniorLife’s annual golf event. We’re also extremely grateful to our committee, which helped make the annual golf event a reality this year, in spite of COVID-19. The proceeds from this event will help Hebrew SeniorLife keep seniors safe as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Hebrew SeniorLife has raised more than $2 million in less than six months to support the organization’s response to COVID-19.
