THE FIRST ANNUAL BUTTERFLY GOLF TOURNAMENT

The first annual Butterfly Golf Tournament was held on August 20, 2016 at the Buffalo Tournament Club in Lancaster NY. It was a wonderful event with great weather and a little sprinkle to cool everyone (complete with a beautiful rainbow over the 18th green).

Thanks to the nearly 100 golfers that joined us, and all of the sponsors, donors and volunteers, just under $7,000 was raised for the foundation. Participants from across Western New York as well as Ontario, Canada came together to raise essential funding for an outstanding cause. The tournament was won by a team from Superior Lubricants and we’ve already heard from some of the other teams that they are ready to challenge next year!

Dinner was capped off with a beautiful heartfelt speech by 15 year old Erin McLaughlin, one of the first recipients of the K A T I E award.

Planning of next year’s event will begin soon. Committee members, volunteers, ideas, suggestions, and comments are encouraged. Please e-mail John Dorchak at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ASAP.
