Annual "Sootie" Golf Tournament donates $1,559 to MNMF

Richard "Sootie" Suttell, (l) director of the Sootie Golf Tournament, recently presented a check for $1,559 to Foundation board member Mark Napoleone. The money was raised during the annual golf tournament on Saturday, July 31, 2010 at the Batavia Country Club. The sold out tournament was, once again, a great success because of "Sootie", the volunteers and all the participants. The Foundation's Board of Directors would like to thank all those involved. The money raised will go to help the Foundation carry out its mission of helping families cope with childhood cancer; assist in pediatric cancer research; and to support local youth organizations. This tournament also assisted the scholarships in the names of Julie Grazioplene and Jason Gioia. Mark your calendar now for the last Saturday in July 2011 for next year’s tournament.
