Rensselaer Honda Presents Its 15th Annual Memorial Charity Golf Outing



On Thursday, June 8, 2017 Rensselaer Honda of Troy, New York, will be hosting our Fifteenth Annual Memorial Charity Golf Outing to benefit the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Unfortunately, we experienced the loss of a valuable friend and employee, Tom Gorman, to Pancreatic Cancer. Tom worked at Rensselaer Honda for 10 years as a leading Sales Professional and was considered family to all who met him. In June of 2002, Tom was diagnosed with this terminal cancer and passed away on September 12, 2002, leaving behind a wife and two sons. Our charity golf tournament is held in Tom’s honor in the hope that our donation will help millions of other people fighting this devastating disease. All proceeds will go directly to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

Join us at the Fairways of Halfmoon, 17 Johnson Road, Mechanicville, New York 12118 (518-664-1578). The golf format will be a scramble consisting of 4-person teams. Registration begins at 8 am with a tee-off at 9 am. Lunch will be provided on the green along with a chance to win a 2-year lease on a brand new Honda in our Hole-in-One competition! At the conclusion of the event, you will enjoy an Italian buffet, awards ceremony, as well as many exciting auctions, raffles and prizes! Golfing is not necessary in order to participate in our festivities!

We welcome local businesses to participate in the tournament by golfing, sponsoring, or donating prizes and auction items. We need your help fundraising to continue over a decade of success! Last year, we raised $21,120 to contribute towards cancer research and our lifetime contribution is over $175,000! Our hope is to surpass last year’s event and we will with your support.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Glenn Babineau or Jennifer Anderson at (518) 279-1171 or email us at golf@getahonda.net.
