Golfers Score a Hole-in-One for Kids with Cancer

On June 20th, sunny blue skies shined on the 12th Annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing, led by co-chairs Frank Catelli, Rosemary Cinquemani, Esq., Partner, Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, PC, and Mike Stroud, President, Atlas Investigations. Choosing the Center's psychosocial programs and services as beneficiaries of their largess, their years of cumulative support has helped raise close to $645,000 for the Center. This year's event at the Wind Watch Golf & Country Club in Hauppauge posted a record $105,000 in revenue to mark the CCFK's 15th anniversary.

Phil Scimeca, MD, the CCFK's co-Director, praised the Tournament's co-chairs: "On behalf of the Center, I'd like to congratulate our co-chairs for their personal commitment to our cause. In addition to raising funds and awareness, Mike, Rosemarie, and Frank have provided emergency assistance for some of our families, helped create a Winter Wonderland of toys and gifts for patients during the holidays, and made sure our kids had front row seats on Broadway."

As the event's first-ever Title Sponsor, Barclays led 29 foursomes to a spectacular day on the fairway that included a Hole-in-One Challenge, compliments of Advantage Toyota in Valley Stream, lunch, prizes, awards, and a terrific line-up of 19th hole festivities. The evening’s dinner reception featured touching comments by current Center patient Meghan Corona and her parents, Ed and Marianne, who expressed gratitude for the treatment and care both patient and family are receiving at the CCFK.

Ralph and MaryAnn Napolitano, founders of Jay's World Childhood Cancer Foundation, eloquently described their own family's longstanding connection to the Center, and talked about how their now 36-year-old son Jason (Jay), successfully battled his disease under the care of Center Director Dr. Mark Weinblatt, and Dr. Phil Scimeca. The Napolitanos donated $21,000 in conjunction with the Outing and stated, with regret, that this generous Foundation gift to the Center would be its final one since the Foundation would be closing its doors in 2016.

According to CCFK Manager Ashley Carlo, "Through the dedicated rooms supported on the Pediatric inpatient unit for all CCFK patients, and the office and CBC Lab supported in our out-patient unit here, the impact of the Jay's World Childhood Cancer Foundation will continue to change the lives of patients and families every day."
