On August 27th my wife Bridget and I are getting on a plane and heading to Boston for the 14th annual Seena Magowitz Golf Classic. This is something that we always look forward to because Roger Magowitz and Liz McBeth do an incredible job putting on a first class event, and all in the name of a very worthy cause!
I have been involved with this charity for several years now and it has been so great to see this event grow as it raises money to help build awareness and fund research to put an end to one of the most deadly forms of cancer there is. This year alone over 40,000 people will die from the disease. The good news is, Roger and his team are fighting back by helping to fund research that will allow for early detection, and giving money to support more clinical trials to find medications that are able to fight the disease.
If you have not been to this event you really HAVE TO GO. We are going to a Red Sox game, playing golf, taking a cruise on a lobster boat and even taking a private tour of the legendary Jordan’s Furniture. On top of all of that we are staying at the incredible Boston Harbor Hotel which is the only Forbes Five Star Waterfront hotel.
My good buddy Mark Kinsley and I will be your live auctioneers once again as we attempt to break last years record. It shouldn’t be hard as we have some really great things to put on the block. How would you like to throw out the first pitch at the Red Sox/KC Royals baseball game? Maybe a luxury box to watch the Arizona Diamondbacks, NY Yankees, NY Mets or the Sacramento Kings play ball? Guys, show your spouse some love and get her a 14.5 carat diamond and amethyst pendant, or a 5.4 carat diamond tennis bracelet. Attention all golfers, you need to spend more time on the course so what better way to do that than in your own golf cart sponsored by E-Z Go. (I bought one of these at the last Magowitz event and it is awesome, just ask my kids.) If you want to hear more about the event listen to the Sleep Geek Podcast with Dos Marcos where we talk about Magowitz and the recent Mattress Firm/Steinhoff deal among other things. And for all of you wise guys that listen to this podcast, I know that 7,500 + 3,500= 11,000 and that Mark Spitz actually ended up with 9 gold medals but he won 7 at the 1972 Summer Olympics so cut me some slack!
I am fired up for Boston because I will get to see some great industry friends, give Dr. Dan Von Hoff a big hug for all that he does at Tgen for people fighting this horrible disease, and spend time with my incredible wife in one of the coolest cities in the United States. There is no doubt that this event is one of the very best in our industry so DO NOT MISS OUT!
