Huntington, NY - June 24th, 2015 - The Adam Gaynes Foundation Inc., a Long-Island based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that funds pediatric cancer programs to help make life easier for children with cancer, will hold its first annual Golf Outing at Cold Spring Country Club in Huntington, Long Island on July 16. Funds raised will support vital programs at hospitals in New York City including the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, NYU Langone Medical Center and Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
The Foundation was created by David and Arlene Gaynes who lost their 11-year-old son Adam to a brain tumor in 2004. To date they have raised over $2 million dollars which has funded child life specialist services, creative arts and therapeutic services at the hospitals and family fun days where patients can forget about their diagnosis for a while and just be kids.
“Adam lost his life-long battle to a brain tumor but inspired those around him with his constant laughter, smiles and ability to truly live each day. We are dedicated to raising money for the care, comfort, happiness, education and cure of children diagnosed with brain tumors and other disabilities,” said Mr. Gaynes. “We truly appreciate the support of everyone who has donated to our foundation and we look forward to the first annual golf outing, which promises to be a great event that will benefit many sick children.”
The event at Cold Spring Country Club, which hosted the 2011 Met Open Qualifier, will include a full day of golf, spa amenities, a cocktail reception, dinner and special hole-in-one prizes. For more information, please visit the Adam Gaynes Foundation's Official Website.
