The Mary Ellen Golf Tournament provides Easterseals with the funding needed to ensure that children can access needed services such as early intervention; family respite; summer camping; physical, occupational and speech therapies; and more. The support of our sponsors makes it possible to ensure that affordability is not a factor for families when it comes to accessing critical services their children need to live happy, productive and healthy lives. Last year, we raised over $155,000. With your help, we can make sure that local families who are raising children with disabilities have the support they need.

About the Mary Ellen Golf Tournament
Mary Ellen Gasdaska provided the inspiration for the golf tournament. Mary Ellen was born in 1954 with spina bifida and 1956 her parents, Bill and Eleanor, turned to Easter Seals for help. In appreciation for everything Easter Seals did for Mary Ellen, Bill and three of his friends, Lou Mutarelli, Tony Esposito and John Puchalla, decided to hold a golf tournament with all the proceeds benefiting Easterseals. That was 49 years ago!
For the past 23 years the golf tournament has been chaired by Tony Salvaggio, President and CEO of Computer Aid, Inc. Tony and his dedicated executive committee members work tirelessly to support Easterseals. In addition, over twenty loyal volunteers from Computer Aid team up with Easterseals staff to take care of the tournament logistics.
