Leggett & Platt’s Karl Glassman Steps Up His Commitment and Urges More Support

Support for the Annual Seena Magowitz Golf Classic continues to grow, with long-time backers of the event stepping up their commitments, officials said.

The 15th edition of the Seena Magowitz Golf Classic is set for a three-day run in Boston August 26-28, and founder Roger Magowitz said he sees a growing commitment to the cause of pancreatic cancer research.

Magowitz, executive vice president at Customatic Adjustable Bedz, said momentum is building as new pancreatic cancer donors commit to the cause, and past donors increase their support for this summer’s Seena Magowitz Golf Classic.

Karl Glassman, president and CEO of Leggett & Platt, who previously served as the Golf Classic’s Honorary Chair and is a member of TGen’s National Advisory Council for Pancreatic Cancer Research, has not only pledged to double his company’s donation, but he also plans to double the personal contribution that he and his wife, Cathi, will make at this year’s event.

“With TGen’s Dr. Daniel Von Hoff putting the pedal to the metal, we are witnessing some amazing progress against this dreaded disease,” Glassman said. “Now that we are advancing at a more rapid pace toward the light at the end of the tunnel, we are all more incentivized to contribute more funding to help find methods of early diagnosis, extending quality of life, and ultimately a cure.”
