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.
