Fourth Annual Friends of Jay Dion Memorial Golf Classic
On Thursday October 8th, 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:
To all registrants/participants of our 4th Annual Friends of Jay Dion Memorial Golf Classic:
We hope this message finds everyone in good health and safety amidst these unprecedented and unfortunate circumstances we find ourselves in.
In follow-up to our last e-mail, we are writing today to inform you that we have received official notice from Juniper Hill Golf Course that due to policy set forth by the Commonwealth, we will need to postpone our tournament originally slated for 5/21/20 until our back-up date of Friday, October 2, 2020. OOPS! We mean THRUSDAY OCTOBER 8th. We were informed that state officials have advised courses that even if the ‘shelter in place’ ban is lifted come May, they will still need to restrict the size of groups coming together for events like ours for an additional period of time yet to be determined.
With that however, we want to ensure all of you that our Planning Board continues to meet routinely (...but now virtually) to plan for yet another first-class event for all, further expanding upon our learnings from the first 3 years, and our extended planning timeline, to deliver an even more enjoyable time for all. ...And by October, I am certain we will all very much appreciate and need opportunities like this to come back together and blow off some steam.
We thank you for your continued support and appreciate your patience and understanding with these circumstance.
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.
