Larry Benjamin Golf Classic (Third Party Event)

June 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Registration opens early April.

Join us June 20th at the Northfield Golf Club for the 4th Annual Larry Benjamin Golf Classic, benefiting the research program at A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation. This event is hosted by Mary Jane Benjamin and the Larry Benjamin Family!

From Mary Jane Benjamin: “One of Larry Benjamin’s favorite ways to spend a beautiful day was on the golf course. Those who had the privilege of playing a round of golf with Larry would not only witness his Tiger Woods-like putt stalking (lining up his double-bogey putt from every angle), but see firsthand how he made everyday a good one. His infectious laughter could be heard throughout the round because he was always having a great time.

In 2010, before his cancer diagnosis, Larry attended the A Breath of Hope Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk to support a friend. Larry came home from the event and having lost his father to lung cancer, said, “I need to get my family involved in this.”

In 2011, Larry was diagnosed with lung cancer. That September he finished the race in a wheelchair with the support of over 100 friends and family members.

All of us were captivated somehow by Larry and since his passing we have felt a great loss. We are proud to honor his memory with the Larry Benjamin Golf Classic, and in turn raise awareness for grossly underfunded lung cancer research by donating our proceeds to A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation.”
