DTRF hosted about 200 attendees at its Annual Golf Classic and Dinner on Monday, June 3rd, at the Tuxedo Club in Tuxedo Park, NY.
The day began with guests arriving around 10am to enjoy brunch overlooking Tuxedo Lake. After a full day of golf, and perfect weather, attendees convened for cocktails and a lovely dinner reception. Dinner featured a special welcome by event host, Richie Klein, and a heartfelt thank you and DTRF update by Marlene Portnoy, Foundation Co-Founder. Jason Ortwerth, a recently diagnosed desmoid tumor patient, addressed the crowd, speaking of his own journey and conveying the urgency for DTRF’s work.
There was a silent auction featuring a dream day with the New York Giants, a billiards table, jewelry and Broadway show tickets, to name a few. The raffle grand prize was a 5 day trip to Puerto Rico with airfare!
DTRF sends a special thank you to Richie and Nan Klein for their time and generosity. We also thank donors, attendees, volunteers and sponsors for their support.
