The Mayor Gives It Up

January 18, 2010 by  

“With great power comes great responsibility.”

That thought kept Joe Mantineo, aka The Mayor, awake at nights.

After seven years of co-organizing the annual Mayor’s Tournament Golf Championship, the responsibility suddenly fell on his shoulders alone.

Would this Atlas shrug? Not a chance.

Although a proponent of the old saying,  “work never killed anyone, but I don’t want to take any chances”, the mayor ditched his beliefs and got to work. He organized like minded folks to help and in the end created the most attended, most contributed to event in tournament history.

The tournament had 48 participants, over 25 sponsors, a $5,000 putt opportunity and plenty of fun.  It was a great success by all accounts.

In early December, The Mayor had the opportunity of giving the Tournament’s 2009 charity of choice, AFLAC Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Service, the proceeds of this year’s event. The result was a six figure check (admittedly we’re counting decimal places) totaling $1,100.00.

The Mayor, as well as AFLAC Cancer Center, want to thank all the participants and sponsors that made this tournament such a huge success. You’ve helped children in more ways than you can imagine, and for most of you it was only a matter of hitting a white ball deep into the woods. Repeatedly.

For that, a great big thank you is deserved.
