The golf tournament was held at the Fall River Country Club on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 and was supported by many golf foursomes consisting of friends, family, PSI vendors, PSI clients and many others in the community.
The Megan Lally Memorial Fund was formed by friends, family and loved ones to benefit Breast Cancer research. Megan, a resident of Worcester, MA and WPI graduate, who lost her battle to breast cancer on September 1st, 2011 just shy of her 31s birthday.
The Megan Lally Memorial Fund, INC is a 501c(3) non-profit corporation. Proceeds from all events benefit notfor-profit Breast Cancer research. Through their 3 Run Like an Antelope Memorial 5K road races and other fundraising efforts, nearly $100,000 has been raised for breast cancer research.
There was an outpouring of support from companies and the community with donations for a silent auction and raffle prizes, just to name a few, 8 sets of Red Sox Tickets donated by Independent Pipe and Spindle City Insulation, a signed canvas proof by the well-known local artist, Brian Fox, a brand-new gas grill from Home Depot, an overflowing abundance of toiletries from Commonwealth Soap, and much, much more.
The band Boomerang, which consists of 4 members, Marlena Manchester, John Riley, Pamela Collins and Scott Collins donated their services for the event.
Early on after founding the Megan Lally Memorial Fund, they decided to partner with the UMass Memorial Health Care Cancer Center of Excellence (CCOE). In addition to treating Megan, the CCOE exists to provide advanced care and to facilitate scientific discovery. The bulk of money raised has been donated to them and their front-line efforts to understand and one-day defeat breast and related cancers.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the support from many amazing people that have donated, volunteered and run alongside them and Megan. They could not have done this without you.
