The 26th edition of The Jay Sigel Invitational – the premier charity golf tournament in the Delaware Valley – will be held at the prestigious Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square on Monday, Oct. 8.
The fundraiser will continue to support prostate cancer research, and now includes breast cancer research, at the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute, which is the research arm of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center is a world leader in cancer research, patient care, and education.
Because of the support from The Jay Sigel Invitational, patients with cancer who are treated at the Abramson Cancer Center have more treatment choices tailored to their individual cancer than at any time in the past. This includes a wide-spectrum of clinical trials to test new therapies, as well as the ability to receive proton therapy.
The Invitational’s host and founder, professional golfer Jay Sigel, possesses 101 Top 10 finishes in his PGA career, with eight of them being championships. A Bryn Mawr native who graduated from Lower Merion High School and Wake Forest University, Sigel lives in Berwyn and is Senior Vice President at CBIZ Benefits and Insurance Services in Plymouth Meeting. He also serves as Chairman Emeritus of The First Tee of Greater Philadelphia, a national program designed to teach life-enhancing values to young people through the game of golf.
Gary Koch – a sportscaster for the Golf Channel on NBC Sports and part-time professional golfer on the Champions Tour – will be this year’s special guest.
