The 2014 Kidney Golf Classic was held on Monday, June 9th at the prestigious Cavalry Club in Manlius, NY. The NKF of CNY was again proud to be part of the Liberty Mutual Invitational, the #1 Charity Golf Event in America.

This year's winners, representing Tacuki Truck Enterprises (pictured) are L to R: Bill Kousmanidis, Mike Allan, Tom Kinsella, Sam Tawil, along with Ben Kilmartin of Liberty Mutual Insurance and Nannette Carbone, CEO of NKFCNY. They won the two best of four ball format and are eligible to compete in the Liberty Mutual National Tournament at TPC Sawgrass in March of 2015.

Finishing a close second was the team representing Haylor, Freyer & Coon consisting of C. Bruce Wichmann, Robert Rayo, Kent Schmidt and Sam Vigliotti.

The Captain and Crew format winners were Mike Butler, Lance Winter, Mike Stott and Tony Gower representing Butler Sales & Service. They successfully defended their 2013 crown.

It was near perfect golf weather and our golfers enjoyed a fun filled day and evening. NKFCNY would like to thank Liberty Mutual Insurance for their sponsorship of this event. We would also like to thank our golf committee, volunteers and golfers who helped make this a very successful day.
