Independent Events Alexander R. Rich Golf Tournament
Posted: August, 2011
In 2004 Geoff Rich and his friend, Kevin Hurd, created a golf tournament to honor Geoff’s father, Alexander Rich, a multiple myeloma patient, and today both the event and Alexander are still going strong. The 8th annual Alexander R. Rich Charity Golf outing will be held on August 7-8 at the Lebanon Country Club in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. With the support of loyal and generous sponsors, family and friends, this event has raised over $100,000 for the MMRF over the past eight years.
To kick it all off, guests are treated to a night of stand-up comedy the night before the tournament featuring comedian Jasiel Ayala. The next day participants enjoy a full day of golf, and the event concludes with a special awards dinner hosted by the Rich family.
Geoff and his wife JoJo and their family find this event to be both an opportunity to celebrate their father and an opportunity to experience the power of making a difference. “Organizing, running and participating in the MMRF charity golf outing is one of the most fulfilling things we can do as a family. Not only do we gain peace of mind by helping to find a cure for my father, but we are able to teach our children about the greater good of charitable acts. The MMRF is such a respectable and worthy cause, which is echoed by the many golfers who return year after year,” said Geoff.
The MMRF is thrilled to have this wonderful partnership with this amazing family.
