PIANJYIP Golf Open raises $2,000 for Michael's Feat
Some 112 insurance professionals took part in the NJYIP 29th Annual Golf Open yesterday at the Old York Country Club, Chesterfield. During the event, participants raised $1,985 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 11-year relationship with Michael’s Feat, NJYIP has raised nearly $14,000 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.
Congratulations to all the winners!
