The Cook Family Charitable Fund (, a nonprofit organization founded in 2006 with a mission of raising funds for families dealing with cancer, substance use and intellectual disabilities, today announced that it has contributed $25,000 to the Marshfield Boys and Girls Club for the organization’s summer camp, as part of the proceeds from the Cook Family Charitable Fund golf tournament held this summer at the Cape Club of Sharon.

Additionally, the Cook Family Charitable Fund raised $50,000 to be used for scholarships to help families with a member battling addiction and seeking recovery. In all, the Fund has earmarked $75,000 following its 12 Annual golf tournament..

“We were very pleased with the turnout and results of our tournament,” said Peter A. Cook, Sr., a founder of the Cook Family Charitable Fund. “These are two causes that we believe in deeply.”  The tournament had a number of sponsors to assist in raising funds for these worthy causes, including Boston Mutual, Joyce Landscaping, the Peter Thompson Family, the Feeney Brothers, and Recovery Centers of America. The event drew hundreds of participants including noted personalities Tom Tinlin, auctioneer, comedian Lenny Clarke, and WBZ sports journalist Steve Burton.

The scholarship fund was established in the name of the late Steven O’Neil, who worked with Recovery Centers of America and was well known for his work on Cape Cod supporting families who had members battling addiction.

The $50,000 scholarship fund will help people who are battling addiction but need financial support in seeking treatment,” explained Cook. “We are especially grateful to Brian O’Neill, founder of Recovery Centers of America, whose organization donated $20,000 to be used for financial aid.
