Locust Hill Gives it Back

Bright Spot: Golfing 'fore' a good cause

Rochester, N.Y. — Locust Hill Country Club hosted an unusual golf tournament Monday.

Inspired by the Pope family, it was a family event.

There were activities for kids, fireworks at dusk, and, yes, golf. It was all to benefit Anna's Wish, an organization which provides support for young children with cancer.

"The amount of support today and the number of people here, the amount of generosity, is something I haven't experienced before," Jeff McKinney, who helped found the organization in memory of his late daughter, Anna, who died from cancer.

Proceeds were also shared with Warrior Salute Veterans Services.

"All those funds will be used here locally at our Warrior Salute Outpatient Clinic and our Nucor transitional house for veterans," said Thomas DeRoller, Executive Director, CDS Wolf Foundation.

The day yielded $20,000 for each group - and an atmosphere that felt like the old LPGA was back at Locust Hill.

The real bright spot?

"You know, the most important thing is we raised that money for charity and we're able to donate to two wonderful causes," Jonathan Meyer, Event participant, said.
