The Friends of Mercy Medical Center 36th Annual Golf Classic will be held on Thursday, September 14th at the Garden City Country Club.

The event will honor Donald H. Regan, a consultant in sales and portfolio risk. A Rockville Centre resident for over thirty years, Don endeavors to improve his community. While Don has displayed financial talent throughout his career he is even more dedicated to his philanthropic work. Don came to Mercy over 20 years ago spearheading several projects including the Mercy Fund drive in the 1990’s.  He is a devoted board member of the Friends of Mercy Medical Center and has worked with the Friends to provide millions in support for the medical center. Don has been on the Board of Swim Across America, Nassau Suffolk since 2001. His philanthropic work also includes supporting the De Lasalle School in Freeport, Habitat for Humanity and the Harlem Children's Zone, as well as being on the educational advisory boards for Kent State’s financial engineering graduate program, and the advisory committee for the entrepreneurial portfolio management at Holy Cross College – his alma mater. Don is most proud of his loving wife Jill, and his six sons.  They are blessed with three daughters in law and are the proud grandparents of seven grandchildren

This year’s Golf Classic is chaired by Michael J. Boranian of Rockville Centre, partner at Montfort, Healy, McGuire & Salley in Garden City.

“We’re looking forward to a successful Golf Classic, we have a great committee and their enthusiasm will help make this a fantastic event,” said Mr. Boranian.

Proceeds from the 36th Annual Golf Classic will go towards Mercy Medical Center’s recently purchased molecular breast imaging (MBI) machine, Mercy is the first hospital in New York state to feature this ground breaking technology. MBI is revolutionizing women’s imaging through the use of a radioactive tracer and special camera to detect breast cancer despite dense breast tissue, which applies to 50% of women. This is the first innovative technology in breast imaging in years and can help in the fight to reduce breast cancer deaths. Coupled with 3-D tomosynthesis imaging, another leading technology, MBI allows Mercy the ability to better detect cancer to save lives. Mercy is recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, offering a range of imaging options for breast health. At Mercy, we are committed to offering excellence in care to our patients, using the most modern imaging equipment to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

This year’s event sponsor is Progressive Emergency Physicians.
