SONNY SINGH GOLF TOURNAMENT RAISES $1,000, T-SHIRTS STILL AVAILABLE
The Second Annual Sonny Singh Open golf tournament raised about $1,000 for the UNT Health Science Center’s Institute for Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease Research and students from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
The tournament, which took place June 27 at Pecan Valley Golf Course, was sponsored by VWR International and its various distributors.
“Though it was rather hot, I think we all managed to have a really good time, which was the whole point,” said Meharvan “Sonny” Singh, PhD, assistant professor of pharmacology and neuroscience. “As an added bonus, we managed to raise a tidy little sum that will benefit our graduate students. I’m very grateful to have had the turn-out and support from faculty, students and, of course, our sponsors, and look forward to the next Sonny Singh Open.”
The winners of the four-person scramble were Richard Easom, PhD, associate professor of molecular biology at the health science center; Jordan Easom, Dr. Easom’s son; Archie Booker, a representative from Miliken & Company; and Billy Sharp, a representative from EMD Biosciences.
The first Sonny Singh Open, held at Squaw Creek Golf Course, began as a way for friends and
colleagues to get together and have fun. The event was organized by Dr. Singh, and his wife, Preeti Singhnarula. The registration fees were just enough to cover the expenses of the tournament, which included a round of golf and T-shirt with the Sonny Singh Open logo.
T-shirts for this year’s event are still available for $10 each. All of the money collected from T-shirt sales will go directly toward the donation. For more information, contact Dr. Singh at 817-735-5429.
