Dear Friends,

I am grateful for each of you and the memories we’ve made together in support of VCU Massey Cancer Center. The last 17 years of cherished moments with my family and friends were made possible by the Massey doctors, nurses and researchers who saved my life more than 17 years ago, and I strive to pay that back every day.

The Highlands-Massey Classic tournament is more than a day of golf, it is an opportunity for us to come together to support innovation and scientific advancement in the fight against cancer. Over the years, so many of you have called me after a loved one, neighbor, or friend was diagnosed with cancer and some of you have fought this disease and called me to get help and access to the Massey Cancer Center. I hope one day to receive less calls but until that day comes, I hope you will join me in our continued fight to fund the best care and research in our community.

This year’s Highlands-Massey Classic team will be hosted on Thursday, September 15, plan to join me for a great day on the golf course. Thanks to the underwriting of most of our costs, your cost for participation is 100 percent a donation to the lifesaving work at VCU Massey Cancer Center. Foursome entries are priced at $2,000 and include a lunch, a mid day start followed by a casual dinner. Additional corporate sponsors are available as well, so I urge you to be as generous as you can and invite others to join you participating in a fun day on The Highlands course for a most urgent cause. Your dollar could be the dollar that finds a cure, and together we are saving lives.

With gratitude,

George P. Emerson, Jr.
Chairman Highlands Massey Classic
