8th Annual "Kidney Open" Golf Outing
Time & Place
Shot Gun Start at 1PM
DuPont Country Club, 1001 Rockland Rd Wilmington, DE
Hosted by Dan Sinnott and Howard Nathan, the 8th Annual "Kidney Open" will be held at the exclusive DuPont Country Club on the DuPont Course & Nemours Course in Wilmington, DE. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Family House.
The Kidney Open began eight years ago when Dan Sinnott, was diagnosed with a tumor on his kidney. Yearning to play one last round of golf, he called his friends and organized a golf outing to take place the day before he underwent surgery. His surgery was a success, and with that life-changing experience he developed a newfound empathy for hospital patients.
A year after his surgery, the same friends who attended his pre-surgery game, decided to make an annual event out of their golf outing. Six years ago, taking notice to the outing's rising popularity, Dan collaborated with Howard Nathan, long-time friend and President/CEO of the Gift of Life Donor Program to use the event as a platform to raise funds for Gift of Life Family House.
"The purpose is to have fun, its not competitive. We have good golfers; we have not so good golfers. We want to have fun, raise money, and raise awareness."
- Dan Sinnott
