The second annual 65 Roses Golf Classic for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on Nov. 7 at the Breakers West Golf Club was a huge success, bringing in $100,000 with 76 golfers.
“Our presenting sponsors, Sue and Fred Menowitz, are our heroes,” said Chanda Fuller, the executive director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “They helped bring in many new participants and even brought in our gold sponsors, Karen and Elliot Hershberg. What a wonderful group!”
Siupeli and Suzanne Malamala and Albert Maggio co-chaired the committee for the event, which attracted several corporate sponsors and featured amazing gifts and goodie bags for golfers, the famous “party holes,” a silent auction, prizes and a cocktail reception for the awards presentation.
Frigates, BJ’s Restaurants, Tito’s Vodka and Tease Me Tequila kept the beverages flowing out on the course. SiupeliMalamala is a NY Jets alum, so there was a strong NFL presence at the tournament.
Other golf committee members are Spencer Abrams, Jodi Chu, Christopher Kretz, Alys Daly, Marc Haisfield, Amy Smith, Steve Wagmeister, Lindsey White, Stacy Jackson Meschke, John Schutz and Jon Rapaport.
Supporters included PNC, Frankel Development, Las Trampas, Frigates, Tito’s Homemade Vodka, Tease Me Tequila, BJ’s Restaurants, Gold Coast Beverage Distributors, Monk in the Trunk, Graphic Plus and Davidoff Studios.
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 CFF’s hopes for finding an ultimate cure.
