Organizers of the Seena Magowitz Golf Classic have appointed David Dombrowski, president of baseball operations for the Boston Red Sox, as honorary chair of the annual charity event.
The classic will take place this summer in Boston. To date, the tournament has raised more than $5 million for pancreatic cancer research conducted by the Translational Genomics Research Institute in Phoenix.
“I am honored to help support the Seena Magowitz Golf Classic and TGen’s cutting-edge pancreatic cancer research and clinical trials,” Dombrowski said. “Boston is one of the truly great sports towns in America, and it’s my hope that this enthusiasm and excitement will make this premier event a great success.”
Dombrowski is a member of the institute’s Pancreatic Cancer National Advisory Council. He became involved after a relative underwent cancer treatment.
“Partnering with David Dombrowski is a dream come true for the Seena Magowitz Foundation, TGen and the hundreds of pancreatic cancer patients who need our help today,” event founder Roger Magowitz said. “Having the tournament based in Boston will provide a new opportunity to raise awareness surrounding this disease throughout New England and across the upper Atlantic seaboard.”
