Town of Fenton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The friends of Tom Race are hosting the 3rd annual Tom Race Memorial Family Day & Golf Tournament.

DATE: July 27, 2012
PLACE: Chenango Valley State Park

It's in cooperation with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation – Central Region.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Catholic Charities of Broome County’s Gateway Center for Youth. Gateway is a free, confidential program that offers short-term individual counseling and a variety of group counseling opportunities for young people.

Mr. Race was a lifelong resident of Broome County with a great love of his community and especially Chenango Valley State Park. His wife, Barbara, has worked for many years with the Family Services Division of Broome County DSS. She states, “I’ve watched the Gateway Program struggle with budget cuts over the past few years. This program is extremely valuable to Broome County adolescents as it is a free offering and I have been impressed with the program offerings and their quality. I want to help keep the program available.”
