Upstate Open

32nd annual Upstate Open raises record-breaking $222,000

The Upstate Foundation’s 32nd Upstate Open was held on July 19, 2019, at the Timber Banks Golf Club in Baldwinsville. Thanks to a record 276 golfers – and a record 78 corporate sponsors, led by presenting sponsors Solvay Bank and Grant Thornton audit, tax and advisors– the tournament raised more than $222,440, a record-breaking sum in its own right. Funds raised this year will help support children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

“This year’s Upstate Open validated once again the importance of the Upstate Foundation’s mission of supporting patient care, education, research and health in our region,” said Toni Gary, tournament director and director of community relations and development for Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.“Just as important, it tangibly demonstrated the support for our mission by the Upstate Medical University community, Central New York businesses, and our community as a whole, all while enjoying some fun and fellowship on the fairways.”

According to Gary, the dollars raised this year bring the total of funds raised over the past five years to more than $1 million, with proceeds supporting a range of Upstate health initiatives, including: a recent renovation of the pediatric emergency room, pediatric mental health services, the Nappi Center for Longevity and Brain Health (slated to begin construction soon), and the 2016 Brighter Beginnings campaign focused on renovating and expanding the maternity unit at Upstate University Hospital’s Community Campus.

Gary added that the 2019 event’s resounding success was achieved thanks to participating golfers, Timber Banks, numerous Upstate volunteers, and the tournament committee led by Stuart Wright, chief financial officer for Upstate University Hospital.
