Golf Tournament Supports Crime Victims Assistance Center

Posted: Updated:

Golfers came to support the Crime Victims Memorial Golf Tournament in memory of Patty LaCaprara at Ford Hill Country Club in Whitney Point on Saturday. 

LaCaprara, who was a nurse at UHS, was a victim who was killed in a violent crime in Johnson City in 2013. Tournament Founder Barbara Gilmore was one of her best friends. 

"We started as just a bunch of friends doing this and it's grown every year," said Gilmore. 

The tournament included prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin, as well as basket raffles. During the first four years of the tournament, $19,000 was raised for the Crime Victims Assistance Center.
