Baltimore, MD â€“ November 17, 2009 â€“ Hudson Financial Solutions, which provides companies with a range of consulting and project management services in accounting, finance and audit-related functions, hosted its Third Annual Hudson Charity Golf Tournament at Renditions Golf Course in Davidsonville, MD, on October 30, 2009. All proceeds from the event support the Pediatric Oncology program at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.
The tournament’s Legacy Partner, 180s, the Baltimore-based leading brand for innovative outdoor accessories, led the impressive list of contributors with a $12,500 donation. Additional partners included ParenteBeard LLC certified public accounting firm, and Impulse Monitoring, Inc. which provides intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring services to hospitals and other facilities.
â€œThe event was an overwhelming success, and the most rewarding aspect is that through the help of very generous sponsors and tournament participants, a significant amount of money was raised to help children with cancer,â€ said Glen Parrillo, general manager for Hudson in Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C.
With over 80 area executives in attendance, the tournament provided opportunities for networking, golf contests, a silent auction and luncheon. Inspirational stories were shared from two patients of the Pediatric Oncology Center. Guests at the day-long event included executive foursomes from area businesses including General Dynamics, Marriott International, Inc., US Naval Institute among other prominent companies.
According to Johns Hopkins, twenty years ago, only 30% of children with cancer could be effectively treated. Today, the survival rate is over 75%.
