Thomas G. Cavanagh Memorial Fund

Butler Hospital Golf Challenge - September 23, 2014

The TGC Fund is proud to announce that it will be partnering with Butler Hospital to host the Butler Hospital Golf Challenge on September 23, 2014 at the Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Charlestown, RI.

Below is a letter from Tom’s Father, Joe, discussing the purpose and goal of this great event.

Dear Friends,

Our family cannot adequately express what the uplifting support of our friends and community has done for us in the years since our Tommy passed. So many people in so many ways have demonstrated their love, kindness, and generosity to us.

From Tom's hospitalizations, we learned about the acute need for good follow-up care for patients who eventually leave the security of the hospital to return to their communities. We saw — indeed, it was Tom who first pointed out to us — that many patients were alone, poor, and at risk when leaving. The Thomas G. Cavanagh Memorial Fund's ("the TGC Fund") primary goal is to raise awareness of and support for the needs of such patients and their families. The TGC Fund's affiliation with Butler Hospital — the primary mental health facility in Rhode Island — is in large part due to our joint goal of improving out-patient care. Our family experienced the uncertainty and worry that accompanies all who encounter the demons of mental illness. We see our support of the battle against mental illness as an appropriate memorial to Tom.

Thus, the golf tournament to be held at the Shelter Harbor Golf Club on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, is a major fund-raising event for this purpose of the TGC Fund in union with Butler Hospital. We are particularly pleased to have this event at Shelter Harbor which is a special place where Tom spent good, happy times with me and with his brothers in the last years of his life.

Our profound thanks to you for any support you can give to this event which will help the most helpless and suffering in our midst.

For information on the golf tournament please contact Jennifer Morahan, Tournament Coordinator at jmorahan@butler.org or (781)-856-2142.

Sincerely,

Joe Cavanagh
