The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and serving the lymphoma community through a comprehensive series of education programs, outreach initiatives and patient services – hosted its annual LRF Golf Invitational at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale on May 21, 2018. Hosted each year at Quaker Ridge, the event represents one of Metropolitan New York’s premier charitable golf outings, raising more than $295,000 to support LRF’s mission to eradicate lymphoma and serve all those touched by this disease.
The par-70, 7,008-yard was recently named the 76th best course in the United States by Golf Digest, and played host to the Curtis Cup in June 2018, making it one of three clubs in the U.S. to host both the Walker Cup and the Curtis Cup.
Steven J. Prince, Past Chairman of the LRF Board of Directors and resident of Purchase, and James A. Stern of Harrison, Founder and CEO, and Chairman of the Cypress Group, served as Co-Chairs. “Once again, we are incredibly grateful to our friends at Quaker Ridge for opening their beautiful course to us. Thanks to their continued generosity, we are able to bring members of the greater New York City blood cancer community together with area golf enthusiasts to benefit the vital research and innovative education supported by LRF every day,” said Prince.
