More than 20 years ago, Anthony Jannetti — founder of Anthony J. Jannetti Inc., a Pitman, N.J.-based full-service association management, marketing, and publishing company that serves the healthcare and specialty nursing association markets — started the Linguini Invitational Golf Tournament to thank hospitality partners who served his clients so well.

Now they're returning the favor. In thanks for his work on behalf of nursing, a group of hospitality executives have launched a scholarship program, which they named the Anthony J. Jannetti Nursing Scholarship. The program already has raised more than $100,000 and awarded 65 nursing scholarships and four nurse research grants.
