The SEMC Foundation’s 19th Annual Golf Tournament raised $93,020 to benefit the updating of patient rooms at SEMC.

The St. Elizabeth Medical Center (SEMC) Foundation held its 19th Annual Golf Tournament on Monday, July 14, 2014, at the Yahnundasis Golf Club. A total of 224 golfers helped to raise $93,020 to benefit the updating of patient rooms at SEMC, as well as patient, visitor and employee safety initiatives including limiting the number of access points into the building.

The Foundation appreciates the support of all donors including the 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 recognizes Tournament Chairmen, Terry Mielnicki, LCSW, and Peter Freedman, MD, 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 Mielnicki. “The Golf Committee is very appreciative of the outstanding financial generosity of all of our supporters.”

The SEMC Foundation provides financial, philosophical and social support enabling SEMC to continue to provide for the medical needs of the community, regardless of race, national origin, creed or ability to pay.
