The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education will hold its second annual benefit golf outing on Monday, June 21 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, NY. The outing committee has planned an exciting day of golf on the club’s renowned West Course, along with other activities. The golf outing is the primary fundraising vehicle for the Foundation, which actively promotes sports injury prevention and conducts clinical research aimed at improving orthopaedic and neurosurgical procedures and standards. Themed Linking Knowledge to Motion, the goal of this year’s event is to raise funds to build a biomechanics research laboratory.
The golf outing at Winged Foot is co-chaired by Michael Clain, MD and Vicki Leeds Tananbaum. The auction is chaired by Susan Curtain, and Margaret Archer, Nancy Colabella and Susan Flink serve on the tournament committee. Sponsorship levels range from $1500 to $25,000.
The day’s activities will begin with registration and warm-up at 11 a.m. At 11:30 a.m., a lunch buffet will be served on the clubhouse terrace. The tournament will begin on the West Course with a shotgun start at 12:45 p.m. Afterward, golfers and other guests will attend a festive cocktail reception featuring a silent auction of tempting fashion and travel-related packages, followed by a sumptuous dinner buffet and an awards presentation.
“Building a fully-equipped biomechanics research laboratory is an ambitious goal but one we are confident we will meet,” said ONS Foundation President and Founder Paul Sethi, MD. “The lab is critical to advancing the goals of the Foundation. Currently our medical researchers work in outside labs. Having the ability to test procedures in our own facility will significantly expand our capability to conduct safe, ethically-sound clinical studies. We’re looking forward to a great event to help us meet this goal.”
