The Jerry Segal Classic Returns to Benefit Patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital
Date:8/21/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

The Jerry Segal Classic to benefit the patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital returns on September 20 at The ACE Club and Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania. Over the past 24 years, the Classic, organized by the Friends of Jerry Segal, has raised more than $11 million for programs and services designed to support patients and their families during their time at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.

“The Segal Classic is a labor of love, my way of supporting the patients and families of Magee throughout their recovery journey,” said Jerry Segal, Founder of the Jerry Segal Classic and former patient of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. “While in Magee recovering from a spinal cord injury, I made a promise that I would give back to the Hospital as much as they gave to me. The Segal Classic is this promise in action. It is truly a labor of love.”

Because the Jerry Segal Classic is organized completely by volunteers, every penny raised at the event goes directly to the patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. These funds have allowed for the development of a number of patient programs and services, including:

  •     The Segal Housing Fund, which subsidizes guest housing to enable family members of patients who live far away to stay near their loved ones during rehabilitation and learn how to care for the patients when they return home;
  •     The Segal Family and Friends Meal Program, which has provided patients’ family members and guests with more than 55,000 meals as a way to defray their personal expenses related to hospital visits;
  •     The Wendkos Stroke Center, which provides community-based activities and opportunities for socialization for stroke survivors and their families; and
  •     New therapy equipment, including a Lokomat treadmill for locomotor training and ReoTherapy.

“The funds raised each year through the Jerry Segal Classic have a very real impact on our patients and their families,” said Dr. Jack Carroll, President and CEO of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. “We are sincerely grateful to Jerry, the Friends of Jerry Segal and our community for their dedication to our mission and their continued support year after year.”

The Classic begins with shotgun starts at 10:30 a.m. at The ACE Club and 11:15 a.m. at Green Valley Country Club. The event includes brunch, golf, a cocktail hour with grand hors d’oeuvres, and live and silent auctions.
