Kelly’s Heroes is excited to welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bill Marimow, editor-at-large of the Philadelphia Inquirer, as the dinner speaker at the 3rd Annual Teed Off! Golf Outing Oct. 17 at Mercer Oaks in Princeton Junction, N.J. Proceeds from the event will fund clinical trials for pancreatic cancer patients.
Marimow is a two-time winner of journalism’s most coveted prize. Both of his Pulitzers were earned at the Inquirer, the first in 1978 for stories he wrote about criminal violence by Philadelphia police, and a second in 1985 for his investigation of the police K-9 unit. Marimow went on to serve as editor-in-chief at the Inquirer before moving on to become editor of the Baltimore Sun and vice president of news for National Public Radio. He returned to the Inquirer in 2012.
Marimow worked alongside Kelly’s Heroes’ inspiration Steve Kelly in the Inquirer’s legendary Broad Street newsroom. He was a compassionate colleague during Steve’s illness and is now a generous supporter of Kelly’s Heroes.
Marimow will be part of the post-golf dinner buffet starting around 4 p.m. in the Mercer Oaks Clubhouse. Golfers and sponsors will enjoy a full day of golf in a scramble format, with prizes, giveaways, a putting contest and more. Non-golfers are welcome to register for the dinner only, with raffle prizes and Bill Marimow’s keynote remarks.
