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 Easterseals for help. In appreciation for everything Easterseals 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 52 years ago!
For the past 27 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, volunteers from Computer Aid team up with Easterseals staff to take care of the tournament logistics.
