Eldercare Celebrity Open
2013 Eldercare Celebrity Open a Success!
The 2013 Eldercare Celebrity Open, held in honor of Pathfinder Bank, was a success, raising critical funds in support of the Eldercare Foundation’s mission of enabling our community’s elders to live at home with dignity and independence.
The day began with a Celebrity Exhibition featuring Women’s National Long Drive Champion Sally Dee, National Long Drive Champion and golf entertainer Tom Roskos and former Syracuse University Basketball player Matt Roe. The celebrities won the crowd with an impressive display of golf skill and power. Sally Dee and Tom Roskos were also featured on the course, where participants were invited to substitute their shots with one of the celebrities’ legendary long-drives.
The festivities concluded with a formal dinner honoring Pathfinder Bank. Following brief remarks, Eldercare Foundation President Sandra H. Martin presented Thomas W. Schneider, President and CEO of Pathfinder Bank, with a beautifully engraved crystal bowl in honor of Pathfinder Bank’s many years of dedicated service to the Central New York Community.
