VCU Massey Cancer Center has recognized the efforts of the Highlands-Massey Classic and the significant funds raised, by dedicating a wing in the Goodwin Research Laboratory as The Highlands-Massey Classic Research Wing. This special presentation was made by Gordon Ginder, MD, Director of Massey Cancer Center, and Becky Massey, co-chair of Massey’s Research for Life Campaign.
The Highlands-Massey Classic has raised more than $1.5 million over seven years of hard work. This reflects a combined effort of George Emerson’s compelling appeal to donors, hours spent by the committee to put together the event, and the many volunteers who give of their time to ensure a special time for all of the donors. Through its seven years, it has included a dinner and auction, golf event, holiday house tour, and 5k run in the community. Fueled by more than 150 volunteers, the Highlands-Massey Classic has been embraced by the Highlands community as a way to join forces in the ever-important mission to find cures for cancer.
