September 20, 2022…Hornell, NY… twenty-two teams and members of the Shick family gathered at Hornell Golf Club on July 1st for the eighth annual Shick Family Golf Classic to support St. James Foundation. The event raised $12,000 which will be used to support programs and services for St. James Hospital patients.
The Shick Family Charity Golf Classic was founded in 2014 as a way to support the community in honor of Anita Shick, who proudly led the family upon the passing of her husband, William D. Shick in 1974 at the age of 45. Anita passed away in 2021, one week before the annual tournament.
“In total we’ve raised approximately $47,000 to benefit patients at St. James Hospital,” said Becky Shick, event coordinator. “This far exceeds our original expectations, and we are so grateful for the generosity of our family, friends and supporters.”
“The Shick family clearly is dedicated to improving the well-being of our patients,” said Wendy Disbrow, St. James Hospital president and CEO. “It was wonderful to see and feel the enthusiasm of everyone who participated in the tournament. Their contributions will have a positive impact on patient care at St. James.”
“Our family has a long history with St. James Hospital, going back to our aunt, who was part of the first graduating class of the St. James School of Nursing,” said Shick. “It is an honor for our family to be able to support the delivery of local healthcare services in this way.”
