CBS Newsers turned out at the Bowling Green Golf Club in Oak Ridge, NJ today to raise funds for the American Heart Association in honor of longtime CBS News editor Tom McEneny.
McEneny, who’d worked for CBS News for 35 years mostly on “Evening News,” had dreamed of working on “60 Minutes.” His dream came true last April when he edited his first piece for the show. He died the next month of a heart attack.
CBS News chairman Jeff Fager, who played in the tournament, presented a check for $10,000 to Renee Helfenstein of the northern New Jersey chapter of American Heart Association. Also pictured, is Susan McEneny, Tom McEneny’s widow. In total, $17,000 was raised.
