The Northwest and Westside Family YMCAs recently held the 9th annual Invest in Youth Golf Tournament, where 140 golfers gathered at Brook-Lea Country Club and raised $22,000 to support the YMCA of Rochester’s Invest In Youth Campaign. The event was supported by more than 40 volunteers and local businesses, including Bartolomeo & Perotto Funeral Home, LMC Industrial Contractors, Kimmins Coffee Service, Walker Funeral Home, Bank of Castile and Spurr Dealerships of Brockport.
“Due to the overwhelming support from the community, we were able to raise dollars that go directly to supporting the Invest in Youth Campaign,” said Tammie Messineo, Westside membership marketing director. “The Y is here to make sure that everyone, regardless of background, has access to Y programs that make our community healthy, confident and connected; it is events, community partnerships and volunteerism like this that make it possible.”
First-place winners of the tournament were the foursomes of Dave Perotto, Joe DiBattisto, Deb Valle and Mike Thomas, and Phil Passifume, Mark Graney, Ron Turner and Sam Sisca, with scores of 61. The foursome of Michael Ferron, James Norris, Al Cellura and Robert Allardice were winners of the second flight with a score of 70.
