In its 18th year, the Jay Sigel Golf Invitational has raised more than $1.7 million in support of prostate-cancer research at Penn’s Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute. The 2010 Invitational is scheduled for July 26 at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square. Founded by professional golfer Jay Sigel of Berwyn, the event first took place in 1992.

“Aronimink wanted to have a golf tournament in my honor for my years of amateur competition at that time,” said Jay Sigel. “I combined that with the fact that my dad had died of cancer, and the tournament was created to benefit cancer research. The event started slowly but it has built momentum. Originally the event benefited cancer research in general, but after realizing that men weren’t overly aware of prostate cancer, I decided to focus on that.” Read More
