Trump Golf Fundraiser Kicks Off CFF Season

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s local chapter will be launching its inaugural “65 Roses Golf Classic” on Monday, Nov. 11 at the Trump International Golf Club.

“We are grateful to Donald Trump for the opportunity to inaugurate this event at his world-class course, and to the sponsors and golfers who are stepping up to fund research to help children with this life-threatening disease,” said Mary Weiss, the Palm Beach resident who founded the local chapter and serves on its board of directors.

Siupeli Malamala and Marc Haisfield chair the committee planning the event, which has attracted several corporate sponsors and will feature gifts for golfers, party holes, a silent auction and a cocktail reception for awards presentation.

Malamala and Haisfield urge area golfers to sign up soon, as the event is limited to 24 foursomes.

Other golf committee members are Spencer Abrams, Amy Bernard, Tom Frankel, Daryl Glenney, Christopher Kretz, Becky Macaluso, Suzanne Malamala, Paul Makris, Don Mathis, Chris McDermott, Kassandra Mecca, Stacy Jackson Meschke, Jon Rapaport and John Schutz.

Thousands of children across the United States suffer from cystic fibrosis, which restricts breathing and requires constant vigilance and medical help. Recent research has produced remarkable results that support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s hopes for finding an ultimate cure.

Prospective corporate sponsors and golfers are invited to contact CFF Executive Director Chanda Fuller at or (561) 683-9965 for more information and contribution levels.
