Friends of Mercy to hold 36th annual Golf Classic


The Friends of Mercy Medical Center’s 36th annual Golf Classic, to help support Mercy’s new technology, will be held on Sept. 14 at the Garden City Country Club. 

The event will honor Donald H. Regan, a consultant in sales and portfolio risk from Rockville Centre. A village resident for over three decades, Regan came to Mercy more than 20 years ago, spearheading several projects, including the Mercy Fund Drive in the 1990s. He is a devoted board member for Friends of Mercy and has worked with the group to provide millions of dollars in support for the medical center.

Regan has served on the board of Swim Across America in Nassau and Suffolk counties since 2001. His philanthropic work also includes supporting the De La Salle School in Freeport, Habitat for Humanity and the Harlem Children's Zone, as well as being on the educational advisory boards for Kent State’s financial engineering graduate program, and the advisory committee for the entrepreneurial portfolio management at Holy Cross College, his alma mater.

The event chair is Rockville Centre resident Michael J. Boranian, a partner at Montfort, Healy, McGuire & Salley in Garden City. “We’re looking forward to a successful Golf Classic,” Boranian said. “We have a great committee and their enthusiasm will help make this a fantastic event.”  

Proceeds for this year’s Golf Classic will go toward Mercy Medical Center’s recently purchased molecular breast imaging machine, which uses a radioactive tracer and special camera to detect breast cancer in women with dense breast tissue, and ultimately save lives.
