41st Annual Golf Tournament By Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation

September 22, 2023

The Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success, NY was once again the scenic location for the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundations (SWCRF) 41st Annual Golf Tournament.

More than 80 participants persevered through thunderstorms to raise more than $200,000 in support of SWCRF cancer research initiatives such as the Institute Without WallsTM, the International Network for Aging and Cancer Research, and the SWCRF Women’s Cancer Research Program.

Together, these programs are funding more than 60 scientists across the United States and around the world.

Over the last 20 years, scientific advancements have led to a decrease in cancer mortality by nearly 30 percent. However, despite significant progress in prevention, cancer incidence is increasing worldwide.

To combat this, SWCRF directed more than $2.3 million in donor-supported funds to some of the world’s leading research institutions and scientists this year alone. Unique to SWCRF, funded investigators must collaborate with labs outside of their disciplines and institutions to accelerate the pace of discovering new treatments.

Gary Jacob, Executive VP Glenwood Management Corp. and Dennis Herman, Chairman and CEO of Beekman International Center, Ltd., co-chaired the SWCRF Golf Tournament. Mr. Jacob and Mr. Herman also are members of the SWCRF Board of Directors. The golf committee members were Frederick W. Barney, Jr., Robert Eichler, Michael Hight, James A. Ingram, Gerard F. Joyce, Jr., Samuel Waxman, MD, and Ari Zagdanski.
