RCCS & BEAR Construction Golf Classic

 

This past June, roughly 150 golfers teed off at the Cold Spring Country Club in Long Island, New York to benefit cancer patients throughout the United States. The event was co-sponsored by BEAR Construction Company, 601W Companies, and friends, on behalf of Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society (RCCS). At the closing dinner and awards ceremony, attendees met Libby Nagel, a seven-year-old, stage IV neuroblastoma cancer survivor, who relocated from Australia to the United States for the length of her treatment. Libby, an aspiring artist, auctioned off one of her recent paintings to the winning bid from CEO George Wienold, left, and EVP Scott Kurinsky, right. This year’s fundraising event raised an impressive sum of $2,065,000!
