DRI Wellington Golf Classic

December 13, 2010

Presented by Ashley and Joe Maguire of The Rosen Group, the DRI Wellington Golf Classic was held on December 13 at The Wanderers Club.  Despite the chill in the air, the day was enjoyed, especially by those who won the opportunity to play alongside celebrities including LPGA golf pros Michelle McGann and Anna Grzebien, professional polo players Brandon Phillips, Mike Azzaro and Kris Kampsen, and first basemen Andrés Galarraga and Brad Wilkerson.  The 18-hole tournament was held in support of An International Affair, the group’s signature event, which will take place March 5.  Proceeds will benefit the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI), a Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

Located in the heart of North America’s premier Equestrian Community, The Wanderers Club is an exclusive, invite-only destination.  Besides playing on a top-notch course, participants of this event were also entered into a drawing to play alongside one of the five surprise celebrities in attendance.  Everyone present was also privy to a clinic led by Michelle McGann, a Palm Beach County native who has nine professional wins on the LPGA tour and in international competition.  Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 13, she was introduced to the DRI early on and serves now as its Patient Ambassador.

After playing the course, golfers warmed up in Dukes Bar with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while perusing a fantastic silent auction.  Tournament Chairman Scott Armand thanked nearly 100 people present for their attendance and support.

“We have such a great group here willing to do what it takes to help the DRI find a cure.  I’d like to extend sincere appreciation to our committee, generous sponsors, celebrity participants and everyone else who contributed,” Armand said.  “I hope to see each of you again in March at our gala!”

Led by Chairmen Karen and Bob Cavanagh and presented by Marie and Michael Bianchini, An International Affair will be held at Wycliffe Golf & Country Club in Lake Worth on Saturday, March 5.  Guests will be jet-setting around the world without ever leaving Florida as they enjoy décor, delicacies, and entertainment from countries far and near.  The event will feature a tapas dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions and lots of surprises!  Tickets cost $225 per person, and sponsorships are available.  Register online at www.DiabetesResearch.org/IA2011 or call 800-321-3437.
