Longtime West Haven businessman Frank Cuomo, owner of Elm Cafe at 124 Elm St., will hold the 20th annual Elm Cafe Golf Tournament Sept. 17 at Alling Memorial Golf Club, 35 Eastern St., New Haven.
The tournament proceeds will benefit blood cancer research for the Stamford-based Connecticut Westchester Hudson Valley chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The $140 fee includes a post-tournament lunch at the Polish-American Club, 194 Spring St., West Haven. Anyone wishing to attend the outing but not play in the event can buy a lunch ticket for $35.
Since its inception in 1999, the tournament has collected more than $147,766 for the cause, Cuomo said.
“LLS has been honored to be the recipient of these hard-earned funds … over the last 19 years,” the nonprofit organization said in a statement. “LLS is extremely grateful to Frank Cuomo and Elm Cafe for their continued dedication to the mission of finding blood cancer cures.”
Sponsorship opportunities and foursomes are available, and donated items for the event’s auction are tax deductible.
