JMCE enjoys another big golf outing


The 22 people who played their way to honors during the recent and highly successful JMCE (Johnston Memorial Cancer Events) 6th Annual Co-Ed Memorial Golf Tournament was only one-third of grand gifts that were part of a post-golf dinner raffle held inside the clubhouse at historic Gloucester Country Club.

The well-organized, fun-and-food-filled event featured upwards of 60 raffle prizes, all of which were donated by generous committee members as well as the closely-knit group of GCC members.

All of which, Co-Chairpersons Judi Graham and Linda LaFazia announced earlier this week resulted in yet another heart-warming total of $9,700 which the JMCE will soon present to officials at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence.

“The JMCE is one of those once-in-a-lifetime non-profits,” several golfers concurred during the pre-tee off luncheon. “It’s nothing less than extraordinary what this group does for the Oncology and Hematology Units to help countless children who are battling cancer.”

Likewise, the JMCE has donated upwards of $50,000 by way of its annual Co-Ed Memorial Golf Tournament that organizers announced “will return for 2023.”

Yet another reason for the unique success is that GCC members headed by President Ed Duffy have adopted Hasbro Children’s Hospital as its designated charity.

As Graham – who along with her husband David Graham own and operate Graham Builders of Smithfield who served as co-major sponsors this year with Velco Electric – has said time and again “someday we hope there is a cure.”    

Thus, the JMCE record book now includes the 2022 low gross foursome of Troy Hewes, Judi DiOrio, Jesse and Mary Wiggins. Second low gross (65) went to Dewey and Tracy Uriati, Walter Geer and Michy Nanni.

First place Low Net (52) went to Bob Hughes Carolyn O’Keefe, Bill and Mancy Mende. Second place (55) went to Steve and Cheryl Jason, Walter and Robin McFadden. Tom Hebert won closest to the pin for men and Amy Warner was the women’s winner.

Dewey Uriati and Tom Denomme won longest drive for men in handicaps 11 and 12, respectively, while winners for women went to Lisa Adler (handicap 27 and under) and Stacy Lamontagne-St. Cyr (handicap 28 and over).
