Rod Gilbert Diabetes Research Institute Golf Classic

A day on the golf course is certainly something to look forward to...and so much more rewarding when you can play for an important cause.  On Monday, August 8, 2016, the Rod Gilbert Diabetes Research Institute Golf Classic held its annual event at the beautiful Pine Hollow Country Club, East Norwich to raise the much needed funds to find a cure for children and adults living with diabetes.  This year's event raised $169,000 for research at the DRI.


The golf classic, held annually, is in memory of Anthony John Vitale and Helaine Shari WhiteThe Tournament Directors for the event are Eric Reeps and Bob Zuckerman.The Co-chairs and Committee were pleased to celebrate New York Ranger legend Rod Gilbert 's 75th birthday and the 23 years he has spent supporting the DRI in its efforts to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.

After a day of birdies and bogies, golfers enjoyed a delicious dinner, a fabulous array of desserts, and an incredible live auction.
