Operating in conjunction with Greenwich Hospital, the ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education (ONSF) held its Sixth Annual Golf Outing June 9 at The Stanwich Club.

A total of 95 golfers participated in the tournament and were joined by an addtional 75 non-golfing friends and supporters at a cocktail reception, auction and dinner later in the day.

ONSF President Paul Sethi honored Frank Corvino, the retiring Greenwich Hospital President and CEO, for his dedication to the care and treatment of patients in the community and far beyond as well as his commitment to ONSF as a member of its board of directors.

“Mr. Corvino has been the guiding force behind building a state of the art hospital campus with the world’s best equipment in our operating rooms. As a result, we attract surgeons from the highest caliber training programs in the world allowing us to deliver unmatched patient care.”

The event was co-chaired by Michael Clain, MD, Rich Granoff and Vicki Leeds Tananbaum. On the course, Dr. Sethi was joined by Tim Hasselbeck, former New York Giant quarterback and now an ESPN analyst.

Silent and live auctions were co-chaired by Janet Delos, Rebecca Karson, Lauren Mazzullo and Amy Sethi. Neurosurgeon, Dr. Paul Apostolides, served as “charity” auctioneer and encouraged lively bidding on live auction lots.

Golf outing sponsors included Greenwich Hospital, Constitution Surgery Centers, Bershtein, Volpe & McKeon P.C., Fairfield County Look, Greentree Toyota Scion of Danbury who provided the “hole in one” car, The Insurance Exchange, Granoff Architects, Watson’s Catering, Tripp Lake Camp and Camp Takajo, Horseneck Wine and Liquor, Thomas Cleaners and many other generous businesses and individuals.

The 2014 event raised $250,000 and proceeds will expand ONSF’s ability to utilize its Arthroscopy, Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Research Laboratory to enhance future research projects. The ultimate goal is to further outfit the lab for studies in motion analysis.
