2014 MNF’s ‘Rose­mary Smith RN’ Memo­r­ial Golf Tournament

The 2014 Mass Nurses Foundation’s ‘Rose­mary Smith RN’ Memo­r­ial Golf Tour­na­ment that ben­e­fits the Mass­a­chu­setts Nurses Foun­da­tion Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram held on July 7, 2014 was another huge suc­cess!  The Heli­copter Ball-drop fundraiser, spon­sored by PMac Lend­ing, was the high­light of the day where the lucky ball (#116) raised $4,000 to the Mass Nurses Foun­da­tion Schol­ar­ship Program .

The weather was per­fect for our event host spon­sor Cav­allo & Sig­noriello Insur­ance and the 120+ golfers who came out Mon­day, July 7th to the Indian Pond Coun­try Club for the Rose­mary Smith, RM Memo­r­ial Golf Tour­na­ment.  We had some seri­ous com­pe­ti­tion and rival­ries build­ing through­out the day.  The course was well received in it’s inau­gural host­ing of this long time event.

After the event we rejoined in the Black­stones Room for our post-event fes­tiv­i­ties, which included raf­fles, a silent auc­tion and a remark­able guest speaker.  Our guest speaker, Brenda Pignone, RN, spon­sored by McDon­ald, Lam­ond, Can­zoneri & Hick­er­nell, emo­tion­ally engaged with our atten­dees with an incred­i­ble descrip­tion of what it was like to be ‘On Both Sides of the Bed’ as a 30+ year Reg­is­tered Nurse and a Breast Can­cer Survivor.

We want to thank all of the  hon­or­able spon­sors, their guests and the com­bined par­tic­i­pa­tion efforts of the Mass Nurses Asso­ci­a­tion and their highly ded­i­cated staff for mak­ing this a success!

About the Foun­da­tion    The Mass­a­chu­setts Nurses Foun­da­tion is a non­profit orga­ni­za­tion, estab­lished in 1981, whose mis­sion is to sup­port schol­ar­ship & research in nurs­ing. The pri­mary goal of the MNF is to advance the pro­fes­sion of nurs­ing by sup­port­ing the edu­ca­tion of nurses and health­care pro­fes­sion­als.

The foun­da­tion pro­vides:

•   Schol­ar­ships & grants to nurses and stu­dents of nurs­ing
•   Admin­is­tra­tion of schol­ar­ship funds for alumni asso­ci­a­tions, schools of nurs­ing, orga­ni­za­tions, foun­da­tions & indi­vid­u­als inter­ested in nursing

The MNF raises funds and dis­penses schol­ar­ships & grants to qual­i­fied recip­i­ents who have applied for assis­tance to fur­ther their careers or study clin­i­cal issues that are essen­tial to the improve­ment of healthcare.

Rose­mary Smith, RN, through­out her career, was a Board mem­ber and sup­porter of the Mass­a­chu­setts Nurses Foun­da­tion, a non-profit orga­ni­za­tion that raises money for nurs­ing schol­ar­ships. Smith was a tena­cious fundraiser for the orga­ni­za­tion, per­son­ally rais­ing thou­sands of dol­lars to sup­port the edu­ca­tion of new entrants to the pro­fes­sion she loved.

Thank you for your sup­port and we hope to see you next year!
