Israel Cancer Association USA raises $100,000 at golf classic

Some 112 golfers participated in the Israel Cancer Association USA’s second annual ‘Pitch In for Cancer Research’ Golf Classic, raising $100,000 to support cancer research in Israel. The tournament was held April 11 at the Banyan Golf Club in West Palm Beach.

“We are so appreciative of the support our golf patrons provided Israel Cancer Association this year,” said 2011 event chairmen Lauren and Jeremy Schneider. “Because of the overwhelming response to the tournament, we will be able to fund 2-year fellowships to support cancer research by distinguished Israeli scientists – among the best in the world – developing earlier diagnostic methods and groundbreaking cancer treatments and therapies.”
