A Tribute to Jim Finn


James B. Finn (February 9,1949 - January 20, 2018) of Wofford Heights, CA, was a celebrated PGA golf professional who was employed for over 25 years and dearly loved by the Red Hill Country Club members. On October 23, 2018, a Ladies Golf Tournament was held at the Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga in honor of Jim who died of rhabdomyosarcoma.  Jim was treated at the Cancer Center of Southern California/Sarcoma Oncology Center in Santa Monica CA and participated in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial aimed at vaccinating him against his sarcoma. His wife, Tina, made it her mission to raise money towards finding a cure for sarcoma.  


The Aveni Foundation is grateful to Tina and the Red Hill Country Club members for their generous donations, and will acknowledge their support in future research publications.
