TA Associates Realty is one of the leading investors in commercial real estate in the United States.  Michael Ruane, a founding member of TA Associates Realty, created an event to provide a valuable business gathering, golf at exceptional courses and raise funds to donate to worthy charities selected by the TA Associates team.  ITOG was selected as the 2013 Charitable Beneficiary for the event held on July 29th.  The day began with an informative business forum including a round table of leading executives from across the country.  After lunch, participants played the historic Blue Hill Country Club near Boston. 

Michael’s wife Elizabeth has Hürthle Cell Carcinoma, a rare form of thyroid cancer.  Through their journey to obtain the best treatment options, they have consulted and work with ITOG member physicians.  The Ruane’s believe in the mission of ITOG.  Michael and Elizabeth have experienced first hand the outstanding work of ITOG, and the hope it provides thyroid cancer patients with challenging diagnoses. 

Michael Ruane introduced ITOG Chair Dr. Steve Sherman, Secretary Dr. Lori Wirth and Treasurer Dwight Vicks who shared with the 350 attendees background of ITOG and the exciting achievements that continuing to build.   The membership of ITOG is most grateful for the generous support of the Ruane family and TA Realty Associates.
