Rezin Orthopedics held its ninth annual golf outing and euchre tournament at the beautiful Nettle Creek Country Club in Morris on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012.

The proceeds were donated to the Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation.

Rezin Orthopedics invited 2,100 joint replacement patients to the event this year and treated those who attended to free golf and dinner. A euchre tournament was added this year for the non-golfers.

“We had 76 golfers, 24 euchre players and 160 guests for a delicious dinner,” said Robert Alaimo, director of marketing for Rezin Orthopedics.

“This event is always special to us because we get to spend some quality time with our patients in a relaxed setting,” said Dr. Keith Rezin, founder and president of Rezin Orthopedics. “We can witness our joint replacement patients being active and enjoying themselves.”

With the generous support of their 21 sponsors, Rezin Orthopedics and Sports Medicine was able to present the Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation with a check for nearly $900.

The Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) is the one foundation serving the entire orthopedic community. Since 1955, the Foundation has raised more than $100 million and holds a unique place in American medicine.

OREF is an independent, 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds to support research and education on diseases and injuries of bones, joints, nerves, and muscles. OREF-funded research and education enhance clinical care, leading to improved health, increased activity, and a better quality of life for patients.
