Warren, PA (Monday, June 6, 2016)—Photo Release, More than 100 enthusiastic golfers and friends of the late Vince Messina partook in the rain-drenched 3rd Annual Vince Messina Golf Tournament, Saturday, May 21, at Conewango Valley Country Club in Warren, Pennsylvania. Presented by Jamestown Radiologist, the tournament has a history of raising more than $20,000 to benefit students enrolled in the WCA Hospital School of Radiologic Technology. In photo left to right, first place winners of the 2016 golf event are Jason Larson, Nick Ingrao, Marty Messina (son of late Vincent Messina), and John Lisciandro. Twenty-five, 4-player amateur golfers and 140 businesses and individual supporters helped raise scholarship funds for the school. The late Vincent Messina was one of the first students to graduate from the Class of 1969 radiology school. “I am brought to tears when I see the tremendous support in honor of my husband’s memory,” said Kathy Messina, wife of late Vince Messina who sits on the event committee alongside co-event founder, friend and long-time golf partner, Jim Pullan. “It literally brings me to my knees to witness the tremendous response of those who came out on this rainy day to support this great cause.” To donate to the Vincent Messina Memorial Fund through the WCA Foundation, Inc., contact Megan Barone, WCA Director of Development, at (716) 664-8423 or email megan.deangelo@wcahospital.org.
