BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – An annual round of golf to help support kids in the area took place Friday
The 14th annual Maggie Memorial Golf Tournament took place at Traditions at the Glen. The sold out field also took part in various raffles with all proceeds befitting the Children’s Home
Former NFL Linebacker and Union-Endicott graduate Isaiah Kacyvenski started the tournament in honor of his mother who spent most of her childhood at the home when it was an orphanage. He says that he and his siblings would not be who they are if it wasn’t for the Children’s Home.
“My mother had just an unbelievably tough childhood. Two women in the Children’s Home took her under their wing and showed her how to love and be loved. It’s amazing how that change then effected so many other lives. My mother passed away when I was in high school and I remember when I got to the NFL wanting to go back and honor the amazing work that the Home has always done really
Kacyvenski says since the tournament started it has raised around $400,000 for the Children’s Home.
