How Can a Round of Golf Get Any Better?

The place to be on Aug. 27 was clearly the 16th annual Children’s Hospital Golf Classic. After outgrowing the Monroe Country Club, the Country Club of Rochester and the Oak Hill Country Club’s west course, Golisano Children’s Hospital added on a morning round at Monroe Country Club to fit all the golfers aiming their drives at helping the Finger Lakes region’s only children’s hospital. If the tournament isn’t already the largest in the Rochester area, its 456 golfers this year had to break the record! The event raised an incredible $436,080!

The exciting day ended with dinner and Pediatrician-in-Chief Nina F. Schor’s updates on the progress of the new Golisano Children’s Hospital. 13WHAM Anchor Jennifer Johnson and her husband Vinnie Esposito shared their family’s remarkable journey with their daughter, Grace, who was born with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia and was given a slim chance of survival. The “Amazing” Grace celebrated her first birthday less than a month later, thanks to Golisano Children’s Hospital, her dedicated family and her fighting spirit.
