“Each year, the goal of our annual golf tournament is two-fold: to raise awareness and funds to ensure that we at Samaritan are able to continue offering essential, life-enhancing services to those within the communities we serve,” said Mary Ann Boccolini, president/CEO of Samaritan. “We continue to be overwhelmed by the support we receive from sponsors and golfers alike for this charitable event. Through the leadership our returning golf committee chairs Cliff Mancine and Roy Fazio and all of our golf committee members, this year’s tournament is sure to be a success.”
