Jay Sigel Invitational raises funds for cancer research
On Sept. 12, Jay Sigel and his family, Drs. David Lee, John Glick, Joe Carver, Mark Greene, honoree David Proctor, supporters and friends teed them up once again at the Jay Sigel Invitational for his annual charity tournament. Over 130 golfers raised their clubs at Aronimink Golf Club for a day of great golf, and an evening program that included silent and live auctions, a cocktail reception, seafood bar, dinner, award presentations, and remarks by Dr. David Lee.
Not only did they raised their clubs but in turn they raised $275,000 through sponsorships, donations and the charity auction for the night. The Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania is again the beneficiary for both breast cancer and prostate cancer research programs.
Over its 24 years as the Delaware Valley’s premier charity golf tournament, The Sigel Invitational has raised over $3.3 million for cancer research for the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute, where new therapies for advanced metastatic disease are being studied, and to continue the center’s work in the Breast Cancer Survivorship Program.
