The Augusto Mario Schirinzi Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit the International Myeloma Foundation was started in honor of Vittorio Schirinzi’s uncle, Augusto Mario Schirinzi, who battled myeloma. This year, the third annual Schirinzi Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at the Golf & Country Club Le Pavoniere in Prato, Italy. Le Pavoniere is one of the finest and most competitive courses in Italy. The last competitions took place at Golf Club Poggio de’ Medici in Scarperia in 2006 and in Prato in 2007. In 2007, one hundred golfers took part, a remarkable number.
On April 16th 2008, the Associazione Schirinzi A. Mario was founded in Prato. Presided over by Vittorio Schirinzi, the association aims to collaborate with the IMF in order to help myeloma patients in Italy in much the same way the Foundation has done in the States. The proceeds from the golf event will go towards a patient meeting seminar to be organized in collaboration with the IMF in Tuscany, Italy in the fall of this year. The association has a blog at this address: http://mielomahelp.blogspot.com.
