In the Swing

The 39th annual Brightside Golf Classic raised $88,000 to help continue the work of Brightside for Families and Children as a nonprofit child-welfare and family-support organization for at-risk children, adolescents, and their families. “Since its founding as an orphanage in 1881, Brightside has worked to meet the needs of the community’s most vulnerable children and adolescents. While those needs have certainly changed over the years, Brightside has evolved its programs to provide vitally needed outpatient services to children and families,” said Mark Fulco, president of Mercy Medical Center and its affiliates, pictured at far left with colleagues from Brightside for Families and Children and members of the Brightside golf committee.
