This event is held in memory of our loving husband, father, grandfather and friend,
John R. Svenson.
Thank you for joining us in the fight against cancer. The John R. Svenson Classic golf tournament began in 2008 in support of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. John’s strength and courage were remarkable as he bravely fought his yearlong battle with cancer. He was a very generous and compassionate man whose presence was experienced by many as both calming and a beacon of strength. He was passionate and active in giving back to others less fortunate. John will be immortalized by both the organizations and the many individuals whose lives he touched.

The John R. Svenson Classic has raised more than $2 million dollars to fund an endowment under his name. The endowment funds a research fellowship at Dana-Farber in cancer genetics, which is a field that holds great promise for developing more targeted and effective treatments in the future. Our hope is that through your generous sponsorships and donations we will be able to provide even more funding for research at Dana-Farber to move us closer to the ultimate goal of finding a cure for this terrible disease.
