Successful fund-raiser for Jimmy Fund Golf

To the editor:

Jimmy Fund Golf extends its sincerest thanks to the organizers and sponsors of the Berkshire Council Jimmy Fund Putt-A-Thon held on September 16 at Baker's Golf Center in Lanesborough. Special recognition and appreciation goes to Chico Gelinas and the committee who organized the 10th annual event.

The dedicated sponsors, participants, and volunteers helped raise critical funds to support life-saving research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The Berkshire Council Jimmy Fund Putt-A-Thon is one of the many golf tournaments that will raise funds for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber.

Jimmy Fund Golf is the oldest and largest charity golf program in the country. Now in its 34th year, it has raised more than $110 million to support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. From 18-hole golf tournaments to mini-golf events and golf marathons, golfers of all ages and skills can conquer cancer through Jimmy Fund Golf. To learn more, visit
