The Bob A. Saldanha Memorial Golf and Wine Event to benefit Kenmore Mercy Foundation was held at Legends on the Niagara in Ontario, Canada on Thursday, June 17, 2010. This unique event which includes two 18-hole golf tournaments and VIP Wine Tour & Tasting netted a record $159,000. The event was a complete sell-out, entertaining 240 golfers and 60 wine tour guests, including the voice of the Buffalo Sabres, Rick Jeanneret, former Buffalo Sabres Defenseman, Andrew Peters and the Mayor of Fort Erie, Doug Martin.
The event committee along with co-chairs Robert Beck of John W. Danforth Company and Anthony Amigone, Jr. of Amigone Funeral Home are thrilled with the generosity of the local business community. Says Beck; “We are honored to sponsor a great day of golf & wine tasting to support Kenmore Mercy Hospital! The support of wonderful sponsors like: Petri Baking Products, John W. Danforth Company, Rural/Metro Medical Services, Richard and Karen Penfold and the Saldanha family are essential to the success of the golf tournament.”
The amount raised from this year’s event will help fund the purchase of medical equipment and staff education programs for Kenmore Mercy Hospital in 2010.
