The 2017 John C. Daly and James W. Michaels ALS Memorial Open Golf Tournament raised a record $153,000 to benefit St. Peter’s Hospital ALS Regional Center. The event, which celebrated its 27th year, took place on June 28 at Van Patten Golf Club & Vista Restaurant in Clifton Park.
“Even after 27 years of this incredible event, I drive away at the end of the day with such a warm, grateful heart for the love, teamwork and positive energy that still prevails there in making a true difference in the lives of those with ALS,” said Karen Spinelli, RN, BSN, operations manager of the ALS Regional Center. “You all enable us to do this important work until the answers for ALS are found.”
Since 1988, St. Peter’s Hospital ALS Regional Center has been providing people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and their families with a comprehensive, specialized blend of services and resources. The center provides both a medical and an emotional system of support to help maintain quality of life, advocacy and hope throughout the course of the disease.
Thank you to everyone who donated to and supported the event!
