The 2015 Kidney Golf Classic was held on Monday, June 22nd 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 Butler Sales & Service (pictured) are L to R: Ben Kilmartin of Liberty Mutual Insurance, Mark Stott, Mike Butler, Lance Winter and Brian Stott. They won the two best of four ball format and are eligible to compete in the Liberty Mutual National Tournament at Pinehurst in March of 2016.
Finishing a close second was the team representing Engel Law Firm consisting of Matt Palumb, Chris Burns, Chris Gedney and Jason Poles.
The Captain and Crew format winners were Louis Muraco, John Wittig, Tom Gerhardt and Jim Boyle representing Empire Management. It was near perfect golf weather and our golfers enjoyed a fun filled day and evening.
