Maggie Memorial Charity Golf Tournament Helps Benefit Programs at the Children's Home

The 10th annual Maggie Memorial Charity Golf Tournament teed off Friday, with local celebrities and professional athletes coming together to help benefit programs at the Children's Home.

Over the last nine years, the tournament has raised over $300,000. The tournament includes a dinner and silent auction featuring donated sports merchandise. The organizer of the event, Union-Endicott graduate and former NFL linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski, began the tournament in honor of his mother, who grew up in the Children's Home until the age of 13.

"My mom was here from three months old to 13 years old, from that time the home showed her all that love and telling that story it really comes out, and celebrities want to be involved," said Oraganizer of the tournament Isaiah Kacyvenski.

"I got here yesterday, actually I got to the mall, just like I usually do. And everyone was stopping to ask me for photos and that's my job to give back to those guys, never say no to a picture or autograph, I love it here for sure," said New England Patriots Defensive End Chandler Jones.

The Children's Home, located on Chenango Street in Binghamton, is a non-profit organization which offers over 15 programs to 400 children and their families. To find out more, you can visit its website at www.chowc.org.
