For most people, playing a round of golf at a world-class course is a dream they can aspire to. For others, it's a lifeline - a wish come true for someone who may not otherwise ever have the opportunity to do so.
The Round of a Lifetime Foundation was established in 2010 to preserve the memory and passion of Andrew Maciey, who passed away from Familial Dilated Cardiomyopathy at the age of 24. His surviving friends and family fondly recall spending time on the golf course with Andrew and established the Foundation to create lasting memories for others with congenital heart disease through the game that he loved so much.
Round of a Lifetime exists to promote heart health and enrich the lives of congenital heart patients through world-class golf experiences.
The Foundation holds a major annual golf tournament, rallies for the American Heart Association's Philadelphia Heart Walk, and hosts other assorted fundraisers, golf outings, and dinners throughout the year in support of its mission. The Foundation, made up of a nine member Board of Directors and a Senior Advisory Board, boasts a team of passionate, experienced, and motivated leaders who will see that Andrew's legacy lives proudly through the Foundation's endeavors. The Board welcomes sponsors, partners and advisors of all sizes and backgrounds to help achieve the goal of creating everlasting memories between individuals suffering from heart conditions and their loved ones.
