UMass Memorial Newborn Intensive Care Unit
The UMass Memorial Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) & The UMass Memorial Development Office are proud to partner with the Wright Family and support this year's “Tee Up For Tots” golf tournament. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday September 4, 2018 at Charter Oaks Country Club in Hudson, MA. The event will include 18 holes of golf with a box lunch followed by an informal reception (passed appetizers, carving station & desserts), silent auction & raffle.
Daniel & Erin Wright’s daughter, Abigail, was a patient in the UMass NICU from November 10, 2009 through March 2, 2010. Abigail was born 15 weeks premature weighing only one pound, five ounces. Due to the great care of the NICU, Abigail is now a happy, healthy 8 year old. Since Abigail’s discharge date in 2010, the Wright’s have partnered with UMass Memorial to raise funds to enhance the NICU. The Wright’s main goal has always been to ensure that every family & critically ill newborn receives the same great care they did.
Since 1974, the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center has cared for over 20,000 of the region’s smallest and sickest newborns in a family-oriented environment. Located on the Memorial Campus and part of the comprehensive Children’s Medical Center, the NICU is nationally recognized for its quality care.
Last year, thanks to generous sponsors and supporters, Tee Up For Tots raised over $25,000 that went directly to the NICU. Due to funds raised at this event in past years, the NICU has been able to purchase a simulation training doll, "Kangaroo Care" chairs, and other vital, updated equipment needed in the NICU. Funds raised at this year's Tee Up For Tots will go towards our valuable initiative:
Upgrading equipment, amenities, accommodations and services at the UMass Memorial NICU. The Wright Family and The UMass Memorial NICU are always working closely together to determine the most beneficial use of the funds for the patients.
