AIM's golf tournament raises $10K

May 2, 2016

ELMIRA | AIM Independent Living Center’s second annual golf tournament, held May 1 at the Elmira Country Club, raised approximately $10,000 for the Corning-based non-profit agency.

Eighty golfers played in the captain-and-crew tournament, the spring fundraiser for AIM, which provides a wide array of programs and services to help people with disabilities live independently. The field included 20 teams consisting of community supporters, local businesses and AIM employees.

“The turnout was fantastic,” said John Zick, AIM’s director of government and public affairs. “We limited the field to 20 teams this year, but there was so much interest that we’re planning to open it up to 32 teams next year. The support for this event shows just how generous our community is.”

AIM’s fall fundraiser, the Allies in Disguise 5K Run and Mile Walk, will be held Oct. 29 at Craig Park in Painted Post.
