  • On Wednesday, November 12, 2003, The Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop-University Hospital was presented with a generous donation of $30,000 from the Pat Lyons Foundation to help children living with and fighting childhood cancer. The funds were raised at the First Annual Lt. Patrick Lyons Golf Classic, which was held on September 15th, 2003 at Cherry Creek Golf Links.

    The Pat Lyons Foundation is dedicated to honoring the memory and spirit of Patrick John Lyons, a New York City firefighter who heroically gave his life on September 11, 2001 to help others. The Foundation was established by Patrick's wife, Irene and their son Patrick Mate Lyons, his family and friends to help improve the lives of children. The Foundation provides financial assistance to a number of charities and organizations that help children, including the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop.

    "We knew of the great things being done at the Cancer Center for Kids because of a close friend whose son was successfully treated," explained Irene Lyons. "I know that Patrick would have wanted to help the kids at the Center."
