On Friday, July 14 we held our third annual “Tee Off for T-Cells” charity golf tournament at Philipsburg Elks Lodge & Country Club in Philipsburg, Pa. Despite a rainy start, this year’s CNB Bank sponsored event was another great success and, thanks to the generosity of all in attendance, raised more than $58,000!
In the last three years, “Tee Off for T-Cells” has now raised more than $150,000 for pediatric cancer research. Such contributions to the Emily Whitehead Foundation will support our mission to help more kids receive life-saving CAR-T cell treatment like that which Emily received and was just given a nod of approval by the FDA’s Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee.
We are thankful to have the help and support of Oakland Raiders long snapper Jon Condo and family year after year. It was a pleasure to welcome Jon back to his native Philipsburg, Pa. to host the tournament once again.
We were also thrilled to welcome special guests New Orleans Saints linebacker Nathan Stupar, University of Maryland Wrestling head coach Kerry McCoy, and Tennessee Titans nose tackle Austin Johnson.
As always we appreciate the unwavering support of our local Philipsburg community and thank all who joined us at the event’s silent auction and evening live auction and social hour. We were especially excited to have Don McMahon of Connor’s Hope join us at this year’s tournament and share the story of his son’s CAR-T cell journey with all in attendance.
Thank you also to Philipsburg Elks Lodge & Country Club for being a consistently great location to host our “Tee Off for T-Cells” event, and to the staff and volunteers who dedicated their time.
We look forward to next year’s tournament already! Sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to know when registration and sponsorship opportunities are available.
