The 7th Annual Tina Niewinski Memorial Golf Tournament
On Friday, September 2nd, a full course of golfers will tee off at The 7th Annual Tina Niewinski Memorial Golf Tournament. The outing will be held at Cedars Knob Golf Course in Somers, CT, which is a new outing for the event.
Tina Niewinski passed away in 2009 at age 36, after living lupus for many years. The Niewinski family started the golf tournament in 2010 to honor Tina’s memory and fund the Lupus Foundation’s programs to improve the quality of life for those living with the disease and research to identify a cure.
"Tina endured countless battles throughout her life and she continually overcame them. She was an amazing and courageous woman that took everything that was thrown at her and faced it with the determination and strength that she needed to fight this disease and the complications that came with it. Tina always tried to make you laugh no matter what she was dealing with in her battle with lupus.” - The Niewinski Family
This annual outing is an important fundraiser for the Lupus Foundation. We are grateful to Jerry, Meg, and the entire Niewinski family for their generosity and support.
