The American Heart Association (AHA), the world’s leading nonprofit organization committed to advancing heart and brain health for all, welcomes Michael Kirshbaum as chair of the 39th annual Greater Washington Region Golf Tournament. 

Kirshbaum is the Chief Financial Officer of EAB, an education research, technology, and services company and previously served as CFO of The Advisory Board Company, a healthcare and higher education technology, research, and consulting firm. As Chair, Kirshbaum will lead the fundraising efforts and steward the tournament into the AHA’s second century. 

“Every year, the Greater Washington Region Golf Tournament brings the community together around AHA’s lifesaving mission,” Kirshbaum said. “The golf course is a great setting to raise awareness and support for heart health and behaviors that improve it. I’m thrilled to take on the role of chair and I hope you will join us and sign up your team for this very special event!”

The tournament is a captain’s choice scramble that “tees off” at 8:30 a.m. on September 30, 2024, at the Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, MD and features 18 holes of golf, a silent auction, exciting challenges, breakfast, a post-event awards dinner, and more! 

The Woodmont Country Club is recognized for its prestigious courses, which have hosted many distinguished golf events, including the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championships. Each year, executives from across the metropolitan DC area bring their best golf swings and passion for the sport to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke. 

The 2024 tournament raises critical funding and awareness for cardiovascular disease research and community outreach. Research shows that playing golf can lower stress and create an opportunity for additional physical activity during the day.

Together, we are advancing health and hope for everyone, everywhere and having some fun on the green.” 

The Golf Tournament is made possible thanks to the support of our local sponsors including Capitol Petroleum Group, Marsh & McLennan, Wiley Rein and more.
