PIANJ-YIP Golf Open raises $1,400 for Michael's Feat

More than 100 insurance professionals took part in the PIANJ-YIP 28th Annual Golf Open in May at the Old York Country Club, Chesterfield. During this event, participants raised some $1,400 for Michael's Feat, a nonprofit organization established to support, give comfort and ease the burden for parents caring for seriously ill newborns, through the donation of the proceeds of the Mulligan sales and the "Go For the Green" contest. In its 10-year relationship with Michael's Feat, PIANJ-YIP has raised nearly $13,500 for the organization.

Michael's Feat was created in loving memory of Michael Gerard Puharic. Michael was born on July 29, 2000, to Adam and Dana Puharic. During the pregnancy, Dana and Adam were informed that Michael would face grave health problems resulting from a chromosome disorder known as Trisomy 13. Sadly, his life lasted only 83 hours. However, Michael's legacy lives on and continues to inspire hope. His brave struggle and the love and caring he brought out in people remains an amazing accomplishment. This is Michael's "feat." Michael's Feat supplies material goods and financial support to families caring for an ill preemie or newborn.
