The 13th annual Margery Coughlin Pawluk Golf Tournament recently raised more than $13,000 for the Margery Coughlin Pawluk Cancer Patient Needs Fund. This fund helps patients of the Sands Center Center – on the Thompson Health campus in Canandaigua – who are undergoing active treatment and have identified financial constraints in dealing with the unexpected costs of a long illness.
Since its inception, the Pawluk tournament has raised a total of more than $128,000 for the patient needs fund, created in memory of a Naples resident who was a nurse at the VA Medical Center in Canandaigua as well as a mother of three. The assistance provided to patients through the fund helps with necessities such as groceries, gas for transportation to/from medical appointments, and specialized medical needs.
This year’s tournament, which raised more than any previous Pawluk tournament, was held June 8 at Reservoir Creek Golf Course in Naples. Winners were as follows:
UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute, of which the Sands Cancer Center is a part, served as a main sponsor at the tournament along with Constellation Brands, Dick & Roxanne Leschhorn, Mitchell-Joseph Insurance Agency and Naples Rotary Club. Tournament organizer Tom Pawluk is grateful for the sponsorships and for the work of the many volunteers, community donors, local merchants and participants who made the event a success.
