Event to raise funds for Nursing Scholarship Program at The Wesley Community
Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community in Saratoga Springs, will host a new fundraiser called “Saratoga 9 and Wine” on Wednesday, July 24 at McGregor Links Country Club in Saratoga Springs.
The nine-hole scramble format golf tournament will feature contests and prizes for the winning team. Registration opens at 1 p.m. and golfing will begin at 2 p.m. A wine tasting reception will follow the golf outing at the McGregor Links Clubhouse from 5 to 7 p.m.
The event will support the Nursing Scholarship Program at The Wesley Community. The program, originally funded by an anonymous donor, helps employees pursue or continue their nursing education at an accredited school. In 2018, five scholarships were awarded to Wesley employees through a competitive application process.
“The Wesley Community is thrilled to invest in the education and development of our staff and the funds raised for the Nursing Scholarship Program will help those employees who wish to pursue or advance their career in nursing,” said Brian Nealon, CEO of The Wesley Community. “We look forward to welcoming the Capital Region to our exciting new fundraiser which will directly help our staff and allow us to continue serving the seniors of this community.”
The presenting sponsor of this year’s golf and wine fundraiser is Saratoga.com/Mannix Marketing.
“We are honored to support The Wesley Community and their dedicated efforts to raise funds to assist with the education of employees who work tirelessly to care for the aging adults in our community,” said Mannix Marketing President Sara Mannix. “The Wesley Community is an outstanding example of an organization that helps those in our community go above and beyond and we are thrilled to serve as the primary sponsor for this brand new event.”
Additional major sponsors to-date for the event are Jersen Construction, Medline, Select Rehabilitation and Wilcenski & Pleat PLLC.
