The Sun letter to the editor: Thank you for supporting tournament

When a child passes away unexpectedly, it brings everyone together. The first annual Bobby Becker Memorial Golf Tournament was a perfect example of this.

With the help of the Brierwood Country Club, The Epilepsy Association of Western New York, the Golf Tournament Committee and all the individuals and businesses support, the event was a huge success.

The golf tournament sold out quickly and, even though Mother Nature gave us some heavy rain and the golfing portion was cancelled that day, it did not stop all those that came out from helping the cause.

Brierwood was kind enough to open up the bowling alleys. Card games started and a putting competition inside brought much laughter. Brierwood gave all golfers a free pass to come back for golfing at their convenience; $32,470 was raised and donated to the Epilepsy Association of WNY.

We will work closely with the Epilepsy Association, to make sure these funds are used to educate the public about epilepsy and help those local families that are affected by it.

A huge thank you to Coyote Cafe and Monroe’s Place, for organizing donations from our local village businesses for the Chinese auction baskets, including Ray Crinzi Jewelers, J.P. Fitzgerald’s, Total Tan, Coyote Cafe, Monroe’s Place, Donovan & Co On Hair, Holscher Meats, Fowler’s Chocolates, Buffalo Street Grill, Melanie’s Eats-n-Sweets, Jimmies Pizza, Mary Claire’s, Comfort Zone, Tina’s Italian Kitchen, village of Hamburg Recreation Department, town of Hamburg Recreation Department golfing, Prima Olivia, Picture Your Walls and West Herr.

Also, a big thank you to All Star T-shirts, for donating all the T-shirts for the event.

And local business hole sponsors: Mammoser’s Tavern, Ten Thousand Vines, Waring Financial, Leyonmark Insurance, Buffalo Raceway and Hamburg Casino, Century 21 Ganey, Supreme Pizza, Hamburgh Holidays, Jim Holland Insurance, Benz Associates, J.P. Fitzgerald’s, Main Street Ice Cream and to all the other businesses and families that donated and were part of this event.

Bobby loved the game of golf and would be very humbled and proud to be able to help those effected with epilepsy, through a golf tournament. Thank you for your support and mark your calendars for the second annual Bobby Becker Memorial Golf Tournament, scheduled for Oct. 6, 2014.

Hamburg is truly the town that friendship built.

Bobby Becker Memorial Golf Tournament Committee members: Phil Suffoletto, Kristi LaVigne, Randy and Denise Fenton, Bob Becker, Brian Becker, Sara Fenton, Melissa Woods, Kevin Becker, Denise Becker, Adam Springer, Mary O’Brien and Jenn Pfalzer
