Jamestown, New York (Wednesday, May 14, 2014)—Last July, shortly after retiring from WCA Hospital after more than 35 years of dedicated service within the Radiology Department, Vince Messina tragically died. After his passing, Vince’s wife Kathy created the Vincent A. Messina Memorial Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships to students enrolled in the WCA Hospital School of Radiologic Technology. Vince was a very proud member of the radiology school’s first graduating class in 1969.

To reinforce Vince’s love for the game of golf and to pay special tribute to him, friends and co-workers have joined together to create the inaugural Vince Messina Memorial Golf Tournament.  This four-person golf scramble (net handicap format) will take place on Saturday, May 31 at Conewango Valley Country Club (Warren, PA). All event proceeds will help grow the scholarship fund.

Jamestown Radiologists and Revenue Cycle Solutions will serve as the tournament’s Major Sponsors, while being joined by numerous business and individuals who are sponsoring, playing, or contributing to the cause.

There are still spots available for golfers. To register for golf, contact Joe Bellitto at (716) 483-7775 or visit www.wcahospital.org.

A dinner buffet will be held following the tournament at 6:00 p.m. that evening. To reserve a dinner ticket ($30.00 each), call (716-664-8423) or stop by the WCA Office of Development.

For sponsorship opportunities or to make a donation, contact Jim Pullan, committee chair at (716) 665-2247 or Karl Sisson, WCA Director of Development, at (716) 664-8423.
