18 Hole Golf
Each Father's Day Weekend at Thomson Country Club in North Reading, Massachusetts, Mike Patterson Foundation hosts an 18 Hole golf tournament. Our 144 golfers joined by friends, family, volunteers and corporate partners, enjoy a day on the course followed by a luncheon with raffles and silent auctions.
This is where our story began. In 2012, we hosted our first annual Mike Patterson Mini Golf Tournament at Richardson's in Middleton, MA. We realized the amazing support and the ability to grow that day, and the annual mini golf tournament continues to be a fan favorite.
In 2014, Chris Venti participated in a charity boxing match called "Haymakers for Hope." Chris trained hard at Peter Welch's boxing gym in South Boston, MA, Chris was able to raise over $10,000 in Mike Patterson's name for Dana-Farber. Chris literally fought for cancer, and defeated his opponent.
See our blog section to hear Chris' story.
Our first effort to bring fundraising outside of the sports world, and into special events. Over 100 people rang in 2015 in support of the Mike Patterson Foundation at Montvale Plaza in Stoneham, MA.
While we are always looking ahead to new events, and even more significant ways to contribute, we know that we will never have all of the answers. We are always looking for other creative and innovative ideas to help continue to grow, and contribute to such an amazing cause. If you have ideas, please contact us and let us know.
