Sixth Annual Donaldson Organization Golf Outing
Monday, September 26 2016
The Sixth Annual Donaldson Organization Golf Outing on September 26, 2016 at the famed Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, was a beautiful day in every way. Blue skies, perfect weather and a grand day of golf were enjoyed by nearly 300 golfers. The Innovative Research sponsor Bob Donaldson and the Donaldson Organization hosted a full day of play on two fabulous courses. The event raised more than $700,000 to benefit the cure-focused work of the Diabetes Research Institute.
At the end of play, the golfers were joined by additional guests for a fabulous dinner, during which a roster of wonderful sponsors came up to accept plaques in gratitude for their support. Bob Donaldson began the program with a dedicated moment of silence to the late "King" of golf, Arnold Palmer. A moment of silence was observed in hi honor. DRIF President and CEO, Joshua Rednik then took to the podium and explained the groundbreaking progress being made at the DRI; and thanked everyone for their generosity and support. The event's honorees and Innovative Research Sponsors, Jonathan Andrew, Senior Director, Gardiner & Theobald and Brian Aronne, Senior Vice President, Operations Manager, Hunter Roberts Construction Group were recognized for their leadership and generosity.
Bob's son, Doug Donaldson, spoke emotionally about how much he is looking forward to the day a cure is found for his son Matthew, and millions of others. Matthew Donaldson has type 1 diabetes and the Donaldson Family is absolutely devoted to finding a cure. Matthew then presented a special gift to his grandfather and the honorees in appreciation of their efforts to find a cure.
The DRI Foundation warmly thanks The Donaldson Family, the wonderful honorees and all of the event sponsors, the staff of Winged Foot Golf Club, and a cadre of hardworking, dedicated volunteers for making the Golf Outing such a success.
