City of Hope has been named the official charity of the 2013-2014 Northern Trust Open, one of the most respected tournaments of the PGA TOUR. Since its inception, the Northern Trust Open has raised $55.2 million for charity. We are honored to partner with them in a unified effort to improve the lives of people all over the world.
As the official charity, City of Hope will utilize the event as a platform to educate the nation about our work, as well as benefit from the considerable charitable dollars generated from tournament proceeds. In turn, we will work alongside the Northern Trust Open to generate exposure, sales, promotion and growth of the event.
"We are deeply honored to be selected as Northern Trust Open's official charity," said City of Hope Chief Executive Officer Michael A. Friedman, M.D. "Their generosity and support will help us to make new medical and scientific breakthroughs as we accelerate our progress toward discoveries that create longer and healthier lives for people everywhere."
