SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community in Saratoga Springs, will host its second golf fundraiser “Saratoga 9 and Wine” on Tuesday, Aug. 10 at the Saratoga Lake Golf Club.
The event is a nine-hole scramble format golf outing with two tournaments being played on the front and back nine holes simultaneously. In addition, the event will feature wine and spirits tastings along the course, as well as other contests and activities.
Funds raised through the event will benefit The Campaign For Springs to renovate the Springs Building at Wesley Health Care Center. The project will create a contemporary, efficient, and home-like environment on the building’s second, third, and fourth floors. Phase one of the project was completed in 2016.
This year’s event is being co-chaired by Tara Anne Pleat and Jim Carminucci, both members of The Wesley Foundation Board of Directors.
“We are excited to bring the ‘Saratoga 9 and Wine’ back for 2021. This is a fun way to enjoy a round of golf and raise money for a great cause,” said Pleat. “The Springs Building renovation is an important project for The Wesley Community and will improve the lives of our residents.”
