From June 5-8, guests will enjoy a weekend filled with golf, tennis, comedy, fishing off the Massachusetts Coast, and much more at this signature event.

Friends, family, and celebrities come together on Thursday in Falmouth to start the weekend with a relaxing ferry ride, provided by The Genesis Foundation. Guests arrive at the Harbor View Hotel, their luxurious accommodations for the weekend, where they’ll enjoy a delicious dinner and comedy show.

Friday consists of the golf and tennis tournaments at the prestigious Farm Neck Golf Club, where guests can tee off in view of the Nantucket Sound.  The fine dining continues that evening, with guests also participating in a live auction featuring autographed sports memorabilia and wonderful vacation packages.

Saturday includes the weekend highlight, a day-long “release” fishing tournament off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, as well as the awards ceremony, completion of the silent auction and farewell dinner.

The success of this truly incredible weekend can be measured in the 32 years it has been held, as well as notable guests from over the years, including Phillies third-baseman Mike Schmidt, astronaut Bruce Melnick, comedian Lenny Clarke, Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio, Basketball Hall of Famer Bob Cousy, Colts QB Johnny Unitas, NCAA basketball coaching legend Bobby Knight, and many more.

Please join us for a wonderful weekend to benefit The Genesis Foundation for Children, a New England based non-profit organization, who provides funding for the diagnosis and compassionate, coordinated care of children born with physical and intellectual disabilities, and genetic disorders. The Genesis Foundation’s goal is that all children born with these challenges receive the care necessary to achieve their full potential.  It will be an event you’ll never forget!
