Golf Outing in Memory of Dennis Kennedy

The annual Golf Outing in Memory of Dennis Kennedy was held on June 5, 2023 at Sweetbriar Golf Club in Avon Lake. Dennis worked as the Director of Technical Services for Centers for Dialysis Care (CDC). He started a golf outing for CDC employees and dreamed of one day golfing at Pebble Beach until his passing in 1996. Dennis' coworkers decided not only to memorialize him by continuing the golf outing, but also turn it into a fundraiser for his second love, kidney patients.

Thanks to the support of our golfers, sponsors, donors, and volunteers we raised more than $40,000 for the Foundation’s assistance programs. View photos from this year’s event.
