Michelle Adey Open

The Michelle Adey Open, the main fund-raiser for the Michelle M. Adey Memorial Fund, marks its 27th year this year when the event tees off Sunday, July 18, at the Rome County Club.

The tournament is a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m. with check-in beginning at 7 a.m. Entry fee is $85 per golfer. Proceeds benefit the Michelle M. Adey Memorial Foundation Inc.

There are a limited number of openings still available. For information, contact tournament director Mike Adey at 336-0818.

Michelle Adey, the daughter of Michael Adey and Mary Carmel Wolf, died of cystic fibrosis in 1982 at age 6. To keep her memory alive and to help families of children with life-threatening illnesses deal with the financial burden of travel, hospital costs and other expenses, Michelle's family and friends started the “Michelle Fund.”

“When Michelle was sick, so many people opened their hearts to us that we wanted to find a way to provide that type of help to parents who are living through what we went through,” said Michael Adey in a news release. “The golf tournament is the major fund-raiser we have to help pass along kindness to families in need. Because of the great support we have received over the years, we have been able to help close to 300 families through $500,000 in donations to families in the Mohawk Valley.
