Suffolk Chapter Update

April 28, 2010 – CAF’s Suffolk chapter sent the following update on activities:

On April 12, 2010 we had our annual Bowling Night. Last year’s Honoree, John Giaquinto, owns a bowling alley and gave it to Cooley’s anemia for the evening. He also provided all the beverages. The Watral family provided the food. Lanes were sold for $1,000 each. This is a fun evening and families are encouraged. The Foundation netted $16,000 at this event. Pictures are below.

On May 3, 2010 we will have our annual Wine Tasting. Tom and Ginny Watral open their home to 60 people, each donating $250 to sample premier wines and food to compliment the wines. This year Tom and Ginny will feature wines from their vineyard in Napa Valley. This is a highlight of the year. Pictures from last year’s event are below.
