DefinitiveCares Hosts Golf Tournament to Support the Jimmy Fund
Definitive Healthcare’s community service organization raises $30,000 for cancer research.
Framingham, MA – September 7, 2017 – Definitive Healthcare, the leading provider of data, intelligence, and analytics on the healthcare provider market, recently hosted its second annual golf tournament in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. The tournament took place at the Highlands Golf and Country Club in Grafton, MA, and included dinner and a silent auction.
The event was run by DefinitiveCares, Definitive Healthcare’s community service organization. According to Emily Atkinson, co-organizer of the event, 144 golfers participated in the tournament – the maximum allowed on the course. The event exceeded its original donation and fundraising goal by more than $10,000, totaling nearly $30,000. “The tournament was a huge success thanks to the hard work of all the volunteers, both before the tournament and the day of,” said John Caccavaro, who organized the event with Atkinson. “Not only did we hit our $20,000 goal, but we blew it out of the water.”
“The whole day is a tribute to the nature of the people that we have in this company,” said Jason Krantz, CEO of Definitive Healthcare. “Everybody always has a smile on their face, and we all embrace the culture of giving back. This is a great cause that touches all of us so the hard work is absolutely worth it. We hope to see everyone again next year!”
