Dear Guests,

As some of you may know, I suffered a brain aneurysm in September of 2008.

I'm here today due to the outstanding medical care I received at North Shore- LIJ's Brain Aneurysm Center at Cushing Neuroscience Institute in Manhasset, NY. Dr. David Chalif and Dr. Avi Setton, co-directors of North Shore-LIJ's Brain Aneurysm Center, operated on me and consequently, saved my life. I owe both of these men a great deal of gratitude!

After the surgery, I noticed that I was far from alone in my recovery. I was in the company of many brave men and women who had the misfortune of having a brain aneurysm. I was incredibly fortunate to have been treated by some of the most skilled and passionate doctors I have had the pleasure of knowing.

It took me some time to think about how I could give back to those who saved my life and those who still have yet to face it. I sat down with Dr. Chalif and Dr. Setton and promised that I would organize a fundraiser that would help North Shore-LIJ's Brain Aneurysm Center continue in its mission to be a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of brain aneurysms and other related conditions.

The last two years I reached out to all of you: my friends, my clients, my associates and anyone that enjoys a good game of golf, to join me and support a good cause by attending the Big Daddy Celebrity Golf Classic. The money we raised from the event was used to support the Brain Aneurysm Center's clinical and research programs. Together we made a difference towards saving lives. I am deeply touched and grateful for the generosity shown last year and I’m inspired to do more. I am calling on you once again to join me for the Third Annual Big Daddy Celebrity Golf Classic.

Since the event was such a success in the first two years, I was grateful to be able to support another great cause that serves so many in our community last year, The Long Island Children’s Museum.

So come and join us for a day of fun – and raise money for great national and local Long Island Charities.

I look forward to seeing all of you!
