JULY 2007

In the Spotlight
This August will mark the launch of Mini-Golf for a Big Cause, a series of Putt-a-Thons to benefit the Jimmy Fund. Presented by Bob's Discount Furniture, these fun-filled, for-all-ages, mini-golf events will help raise critical funds for cutting-edge research and patient care at Dana-Farber.

Cathy Poulin of Bob's Discount Furniture and Jimmy Fund Golf's Tim Barry—who are helping launch these unique fundraising events to champion the Jimmy Fund's lifesaving mission—recently sat down with “From the Fairways” to discuss the newly established Mini-Golf for a Big Cause Putt-a-Thons.
