Hampden County

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – TommyCar Auto Group hosted the 12th annual “Driving for the Cure” charity golf tournament to benefit neuro-oncology research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The golf tournament was held at the Twin Hills Country Club in Longmeadow Monday in honor of Tom Cosenzi. They have raised over $1 million in donations for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since the first tournament began 12 years ago.

Carla Cosenzi, daughter of Tom Consenzi, and co-owner of TommyCar Auto Group spoke to 22News about the tournament.

This is the 12th annual Tom Consenzi Driving for the Cure charity golf tournament in memory of my dad Tom Consenzi. We start with golf in the morning and they have lunch out on the course and then the day is followed by a beautiful sit-down dinner outside here at Twin Hills Country Club.

My brother Tom and I started this charity golf tournament to honor the legacy of our dad. He passed away from a brain cancer in 2009, still dreaming of a cure. We’re proud to be able to keep his dream alive by supporting the world-class research that is ongoing at Dana-Farber.
