No Gimmes for Jimmy Golf Tournament

October 11 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us for a day on the links on Friday, October 11, 2024, at Rock Spring Golf Club in West Orange, NJ in remembrance of Jim Worthington. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the PWSA, in Jim’s name. This event is inclusive for golfers and non-golfers alike – all skill levels are welcome.

About the Event

While he survived being directly under Tower 1 on 9/11, Jim Worthington eventually lost his battle with leukemia on October 16, 2021. He loved to play golf when he could get out — which was not often. He loved his family even more, including his son with Prader-Willi Syndrome.

Prader-Willi Syndrome (“PWS”) is rare and most people, including many physicians, caregivers, as well as new parents and family members, are not familiar with this syndrome. The symptoms are many and include a continuous urge to eat, a need for fewer calories to maintain weight, and cognitive development issues. Those impacted by PWS know there is far more to the syndrome than eating and weight gain and are often under incredible stress. For more information regarding PWS, please visit: https://pwsausa.org/what-is-prader-willi-syndrome/.

A “gimme” in golf is usually a short putt that is excused by one’s opponent for playing because it is considered too easy to miss. Jim was as generous on the golf course as he was in life, and his wish was that any “gimmes” go to helping those individuals and families with PWS.

We started the No Gimmes for Jimmy Annual Charity Golf Outing to raise money and awareness for PWS while having some fun and remembering a great family man.

Jim didn’t get a “gimme” on October 16th, but what he’d want just as much is for you to give to this remarkable charity.

So, we’re asking you to contribute a “gimme” in Jim’s honor to PWSA and join us for a day of fun on the course in his honor.
