9th Annual Team Ali-Gaiters Clam Bake Event

After Ali Klube was treated at Golisano Children’s Hospital in 2002 for a heart condition, the Klube Family formed a team for the Stroll for Strong Kids. Their group, cleverly named “Team Ali-Gaiters,” has since grown in numbers and has started their own Clam Bake fundraiser to raise additional funds for the hospital.

This year’s Clam Bake event will be held from 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at the Fireman Training Grounds, 321 Monroe St., Honeoye Falls. Join in on this great outdoor family gathering to help patients treated at Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Children’s Heart Center. Please contact Jackie Klube at (585) 624-4759 for details.
