Western New York Golfers Getting Ready Fore 100 Holes Thursday
There is a special golf tournament that WYRK is proud to be a part of this Thursday at Wanakah Country Club in Hamburg, N.Y.!
Rob Banks and I will join a media relay team Thursday in an effort to raise funds for two very special organizations; Live Like Luca/The Luca S. Calanni Foundation, and the Courage of Carly Fund at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo.
According to Simon Bennett in a new release sent to WYRK:
Our 100 Holes of Golf started in 2016, where three Wanakah members – Sean Lindstrom, Max Davis and myself – did it for the first time and raised $7,500 for Roswell Park. The event grew in the first couple of years both in terms of number of Wanakah members playing plus the amount raised. In 2019 we spoke with Roswell Park and decided to dedicate all the money raised to Courage of Carly fund, which provides children who are battling cancer, and their families, everything from unforgettable memories and family events to financial support. This provides invaluable help to these brave children in fighting cancer by letting them experience the everyday joys of childhood.
This great event started in 2016 and has grown to become one of the best and most successful charitable events of the summer.
