NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing – Another Fabulous Success!

L-R: Adam Nelson, Financial Advisor at Edward Jones, Nate Ross, Business Banker at Northwest Bank and NAMI Board Member, Ben Motyl, Trust Officer at Northwest Bank, Jen Stewart, Treasury Management Advisor at Northwest Bank and NAMI Golf Committee Member, and Denise L. Kolivoski, MBA, Executive Director at NAMI of Erie County.

On June 26, NAMI of Erie County held its 8th Annual Fabulous Golf Outing at Venango Valley Inn & Golf Course. The golfers were able to play eighteen holes in beautiful sunshine, and they helped us exceed our fundraising goal by raising over $25,000 for our free programs and services, ensuring that no family is ever turned away from the education they deserve. Thank you, Erie community, for stepping up and making a difference!

Golfers enjoyed a FABULOUS day beginning with live music by Mike Trott, microbrews courtesy of the Brewerie at Union Station, and samples from Luminary Distilling, Tipsy Bean, and Allie Cakes. Lunch was provided by Give a Crepe and was paired with a mimosa fountain for golfers to enjoy. DJ Tony B played favorite classic rock hits while golfers were on the course.

Participants also competed for the Golden Boa Award and $3,000 in fabulous team prizes. Congratulations to Northwest Bank  (pictured above) for taking home the first place Golden Boa trophy this year. Second place was Sam Catania, and third place went to Coventina Day Spa.

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing would not be possible without our sponsors.  Some of our FABULOUS sponsors this year included: Accudyn, Erie County Care Management, Erie News Now, Harley-Davidson, Highmark, The HUB, Knox Law Firm, Lamar Advertising, McGill, Power, Bell, Northwest Bank, Penelec, PSB Industries, RBC Financial, TechWorx, and UPMC Health Plan.

Proceeds benefit NAMI of Erie County’s free educational programs and services that support individuals and families living with mental health challenges. NAMI’s evidence-based programs provide individuals and families with the skills they need on the road to recovery, providing them with hope for a better tomorrow.

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing is not only a great time, but it creates an environment that starts the conversation about mental health. Mark your calendars for next year’s event on June 25, 2021! Be There. Be Fabulous!
