The 35th Annual Gene Filippis Memorial Golf Benefit has been scheduled for September 9, 2019

Date: Monday, September 9, 2019

Location: Great Oaks Country Club, 777 Great Oaks Boulevard, Rochester, MI 48307

Each summer, The Filippis Foundation hosts an annual tournament to support various non-profit organizations — and to honor the man who first established this enduring tradition.

The event, which dates back to 1985, honors Eugene (Gene) Filippis, a man of vision who was devoted to his family, dedicated to his profession, and extremely loyal to his employees. The oldest son of Tony Sr., Gene became President and CEO of Wright & Filippis in 1981.

A longtime member of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists, Gene also directed the Rehabilitation Research Center (now the Filippis Foundation) which was created to support a variety of educational and awareness programs related to persons with disabilities. Gene lost his life to cancer in June 1997 at the age of 59 after a lengthy and valiant battle. Gene’s compassion, kind heart, and listening ear continue to be missed by all who knew him.
