Gordon Brothers Group Announces 20th Annual Charity Golf Tournament
BOSTON, MA - Gordon Brothers Group, a global advisory, restructuring and investment firm specializing in the retail, consumer products, industrial and real estate sectors, announced the 20th Annual Charity Golf Tournament will take place on July 15th at the Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA.
The annual tournament benefits The Philip and Bernice Frieze Fund at Children’s Hospital Boston, which provides support to families coping with the serious illness of a child and helps ease some of the associated financial burden. Support comes in the form of housing, utility, food and transportation assistance. Since the tournament’s inception in 1994, it has raised $2.5 million for The Philip and Bernice Frieze Fund.
“This is an important event for all of us here at Gordon Brothers Group and for me personally,” said Michael Frieze, Chairman of the 2013 tournament. “This year’s tournament marks the 20th year of our company’s sponsorship of a cause spearheaded by my parents, Phil and Bernice Frieze, over 40 years ago. Each year we look forward to the opportunity to help alleviate the pressure on patients and their families as they face not only serious illness, but in many cases, financial strain.”
Ken Frieze, President of Gordon Brothers Group, added, “We are grateful to all of our corporate partners that support this wonderful cause as well as the individual donors that join together to help these families. We are appreciative of the support this event has received throughout the past 20 years and look forward to continuing the tradition of providing much needed relief to patients and their families in the future.”
Each year the event involves approximately 200 golfers and is supported by over 60 corporate sponsors from the restructuring industry. For information on how to contribute, please contact Peg Murtagh at [email protected].
