NOTE: Only Weeks away and counting. See our COVID-19 update below.
Fourth Annual Friends of Jay Dion Memorial Golf Classic
On May 21, 2020 the Fourth Annual "Friends of Jay Dion Memorial Golf Classic" will be held to remember and honor the life of a truly unique person. Jay had an impact on everyone he met and we want this event to have an impact as big as Jay's personality. Our 2017, 2018 and 2019 events have allowed us to donate over $170,000 to Dana Farber's Jimmy Fund, $50,000 for ARHS scholarships and new this year we are adding a scholarship for Southbridge High School.
We will gather - golf, celebrate, laugh (hopefully at Jay's expense - 3 of Jay's favorite things) and most of all raise money to continue our support of the Jimmy Fund and the Jay Dion Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Please register soon and look forward to seeing you.
We want to thank Boston Scientific for being the Host Sponsor for the Event!

COVID-19 considerations: To all golfers, sponsors and other supporters of our annual Friends of Jay Dion Memorial Golf Classic:
While our event is only weeks away, it is obviously impossible for us to predict how things will transpire between now and then relative to the course of this virus, and its impact regionally. As such, we will be carefully monitoring this situation over the next several weeks, keeping close tabs on guidelines set forth by local/national regulatory and health officials, before making a final decision as to postponement. So, for the time being, we are still a go for 5/21.
Note however, that should the situation necessitate a postponement, we have already established a backup date with Juniper Hill for early fall (October 2nd).
While our charitable efforts remain a high priority, of greater importance is ensuring that we not jeopardize, in any way, the health and well-being of our participants and/or our local community. This situation is obviously a very serious and highly dynamic one. Our goal will be to keep you apprised of our decision-making in weeks to come, with a final determination made no later than 5/1.
Regardless of whether it is spring or fall, our ‘show will go on’ and our plan is still deliver the type of top-notched event that you have grown accustomed to, at the safest and most appropriate time.
All Proceeds from the event will benefit the Jay Dion Scholarship Fund, the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Proceeds from golf registrations, sponsorships, dinner, golf course activities and donations will be donated direct to the the Jimmy Fund for NUT Carcinoma Cancer Research.
Proceeds from the Live Auction & Silent Auctions will benefit the Jay Dion Memorial Scholarship Fund.
