St. Elizabeth Medical Center Foundation held its 19th Annual Golf Tournament on Monday, July 14 at the Yahnundasis Golf Club. A total of 224 golfers helped to raise more than $120,000 to benefit the updating of patient rooms at the Medical Center, as well as patient, visitor and employee safety initiatives including limiting the number of access points into the building. A badge swipe system will be installed and employees may gain entry using the employee ID badge.
Special thanks to all donors including Presenting Sponsor, St. Elizabeth Health Support Services, and Social Sponsors, CNY Cardiology, ConMed Corporation, IBEW Local Union 43/NECA Finger Lakes Chapter and Medtronic. The Foundation would also like to recognize our Tournament Chairmen, Terry Mielnicki, LCSW and Peter Freedman, M.D., as well as the golf committee and volunteers that helped to make the event a tremendous success.
“This tournament was a great way to bring people together for a wonderful day of golf and at the same time raise necessary funds for the Medical Center,” said Mr. Mielnicki. “The golf committee is very appreciative of the outstanding financial generosity of all of our supporters,” said Dr. Freedman.
