B&L Wholesale Supply Surpasses $1 Million Mark

B&L WholesaleB&L Wholesale Supply celebrated a major milestone after its 16th annual charity golf tournament yesterday. Since the event began in 1995, it has raised more than $1 million for Golisano Children's Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center. B&L also broke a personal record for the tournament, raising more than $123,000 at this year's event, with 405 golfers in attendance, despite less-than-perfect weather conditions. 

 

Among its many fundraising endeavors over the years, B&L Wholesale Supply helped Golisano Children's Hospital's social work program, renovated the B&L Wholesale Supply Pediatric Treatment Center and funded a state-of-the-art cardiac ultrasound machine for the hospital's Children's Heart Center.

 

Golisano Children's Hospital is proud to recognize such loyal, honorable and dedicated supporters as those at B&L Wholesale Supply. Thank you for making a such a meaningful difference in the lives of our community's children. 

Thank You for Making Miracle Weekend a Success

Stroll 2011 photoGolisano Children's Hospital is so grateful for the support from the community during Miracle Weekend, which took place June 3 and 4. It's the generosity from people like you that helps make miracles happen for children in the Finger Lakes Region, day after day, and year after year. And it's the enthusiasm we see during the annual Stroll for Strong Kids and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Telethon that gives us hope that together, we can build a better future for the next generation.

 

The Stroll for Strong Kids broke records yet again, with about 4,200 participants and about $330,000 raised. For photos from the Stroll, visit our Stroll Facebook album.
