The 21st Annual Jerry Segal Classic to benefit Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia was held Friday, Sept. 24, 2010 at the ACE Golf Club, and the Green Valley Country Club, both on Ridge Pike in Lafayette Hill.

The Jerry Segal Classic is the Greater Philadelphia Region’s largest one-day charity golf event. Over the last 20 years, the Classic has raised $9.4 million. And this year, the Segal Classic raised enough money to hit a milestone… raising the total amount given to Magee over the last 21 years to $10 million.

Every penny goes to the patients of Magee because there are no administrative costs. The Classic is run by volunteers.

All proceeds benefit programs and services for individuals with disabilities at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Magee, a non-profit health organization, provides lifetime rehabilitation and wellness programs for persons with spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, amputation, orthopedic injury, geriatric illness and work injury.

Participants of the Segal Classic were treated to brunch, golf, a cocktail hour with grand hors d’oeuvres and live and silent auctions.
