On June 17, the Joe Andruzzi & Friends Golf Tournament drew a star-studded lineup of local athletes and celebrities to the beautiful Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass.
The event gave local business leaders and members of the community the opportunity to play 18 holes alongside notable New England athletes and other celebrities, all in support of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation
, an organization that provides financial assistance to cancer patients and their families so they can pay pressing bills, and funds pediatric brain cancer research. The Andruzzis co-founded the organization in 2008 after Joe Andruzzi
‘s successful battle with cancer.
