Jim Parsons, Senior Financial Analyst at Universal Media, and his family are hosted the 3rd annual Tony’s Team Golf Tournament on Monday, August 19th at Carlisle Country Club. The tournament benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hershey and helps to support the great work of Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. This year, they were able to raise $21,000 for the cause and hope to exceed that number in following years. To date, they have raised a total of $57,000.
Children’s Miracle Network is a cause very close to Parsons’ heart because of his grandson, Tony. When Tony was 6 months old his family was in a terrible car accident. Tony was flown, by Life Lion, to Penn State Hershey Medical Center where he was treated for head injuries in the PICU with equipment bought by Children’s Miracle Network Hershey. After brain surgery, 3 days and countless prayers Tony was pronounced brain dead. Although Tony’s story didn’t end the way his family hoped, they are thankful to CMN Hershey and know that if anyone could have saved him it would have been the wonderful doctors and nurses in Hershey.
The Children’s Miracle Network is very important to the Universal Media family, and they continue to be the presenting sponsor of the tournament year after year.
