Third Tom Borrelli Memorial Golf Tournament is July 27

For the third year, we will be handing out the Tom Borrelli Memorial Award to the top senior boys lacrosse player in Western New York. And for the first time, we'll be honoring the top girls player as well.

It's our way of honoring our late coworker and friend, who was a fan of all high school sports, particularly lacrosse.

A major fund raiser for the a scholarship fund we are building will be the third annual Tom Borrelli Memorial Award Golf Tournament on Wednesday, July 27 at Holland Hills. 

The first two events have been a big hit and a great time. We're looking forward to seeing many familiar faces. If you competed last year, email me as soon as possible if you plan on playing again.

Spots are filling up so act fast. Here are the details:

It is a 10 a.m. shotgun scramble. The cost is $100 per golfer. Price includes golf, cart, lunch at the turn, dinner, open bar and another chance to hear Jerry Sullivan lie about how well he played. There will be prizes, auctions, raffles and drawings. Golfers who want to play with Sullivan or other News staffers can do so at a higher cost. There is limited space for dinner-only guests at a cost of $25.

To register, mail a check payable to the Tom Borrelli Memorial Award and Scholarship Fund, along with the names of golfers, dinner guests and a phone number to: Tom Borrelli Memorial Award, c/o Sports Department, The Buffalo News, Box 100, One News Plaza, Buffalo, 14240.
