Event to raise funds for The Campaign for Springs renovation project at
The Wesley Community
Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community in Saratoga Springs, will host its third annual golf fundraiser “Saratoga 9 and Wine” on Tuesday, August 9 at the Saratoga Lake Golf Club in Saratoga Springs, NY. Registration opens at 12:30 p.m. with a shotgun start at 2 p.m. A grab-and-go lunch will be available for all golfers.
The event is a nine-hole scramble format golf outing with two tournaments being played on the front and back nine holes simultaneously. In addition, the event will feature wines from Specialty Wines and More, as well as other contests and activities.
Funds raised through the Saratoga 9 & Wine event will benefit The Campaign for Springs renovation of the Springs Building at Wesley Health Care Center. The project will create a contemporary home-like environment on the building’s second, third and fourth floors. Phase one of the project has already been completed.
This year’s event is being co-chaired by Tara Anne Pleat and Jim Carminucci, both members of The Wesley Foundation Board of Directors.
“We are excited to bring back the Saratoga 9 and Wine fundraiser for a third year. What better way to raise money for a great cause than through a round of golf at the beautiful Saratoga Lake Golf Club,” said Pleat. “Completion of renovations to the Springs Building is critical to enhancing the lifestyle and well-being of The Wesley Community’s most-in-need residents now and for many generations to come.”
“The Springs renovation project remains one of our highest priorities because it is very important for our surrounding community and our residents,” said Carminucci. “This annual, and much-anticipated event, has proven successful at advancing our fundraising efforts in the past. Now it’s time to bring the completion of this important project to fruition.”
