BIA-MA hosts annual golf classic June 17

BIA-MA logoBoylston – Every 18.5 seconds, someone suffers a brain injury in the United States. The incidence is only rising. Join New England football guard Logan Mankins and New England football alum and CBS Radio Sportscaster Scott Zolak to raise awareness of brain injury and tee off in the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts” (BIA-MA) charity golf tournament at the Mount Pleasant Country Club in Boylston on Monday, June 17.

Register your foursome to play on an 18-hole championship parkland-style golf course, or register as an individual to play on a green that caters to all skill levels. Golfers will be treated to lunch, an awards dinner in the clubhouse dining room, and an opportunity to win multiple golf prizes. Silent and live auctions feature tickets to sporting events and New England sports-themed memorabilia.

“The BIA-MA is an organization that provides needed information and resources to survivors of brain injury and their families, and I's happy to partner with the organization for the Annual Golf Classic to help raise money and awareness on behalf of brain injury,” said WBZ 98.5 FM “Voice of the Bruins” Dave Goucher. “I'se helped emcee the auction for the past few years and I look forward to helping the BIA-MA help the next survivor.”
