The 14th Annual John Fiore Foundation Memorial Golf Tournament was held Saturday, August 12, 2023.
It was our largest golf outing to date with 238 golfers on hand. Our angels looked over us to ensure a beautiful day for golf and a celebration of our loved ones. Thank you really isn’t enough to express how grateful we are to have so many amazing people in our lives. Our sponsors, golfers, volunteers, donors, raffle purchasers, our partners, Jim and the awesome staff at Willowbrook Golf Course and everyone who simply encourages us by believing in our mission of giving back in John’s memory…we could never do any of this without you.

The family and friends of John founded the John J. Fiore Memorial Golf Tournament in 2009 (incorporated as The John Fiore Foundation in 2019 and we received 501c3 status in 2020) as a way to honor his memory after he passed away on Flight 3407 in Clarence, New York on February 12, 2009.
John dedicated his life to his family and his country, spending 30 years serving the United States in both the Marine Corps and the Air Force He fought for our freedom in Vietnam, Desert Storm and had 2 tours of duty in the Iraqi War. John retired from active duty as Chief Master Sergeant in 2006 and was due to retire from his civilian career at Washington Mills in 2011. Our hero continues to be sorely missed.
John always had a special place in his heart for children, having spearheaded fundraisers for Children's Hospital and various local organizations. We have been able to raise over $287,500 in our first fourteen years for the Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo. In addition, we've raised over $66,000 for WNY Heroes, $20,000 to SABAH, Inc., $9,900 for Diamonds In The Ruff Animal Rescue and $187,188 for other organizations and local families in need. That brings our thirteen-year grand total to over $570,588 through the end of 2023. The family and friends of John thank everyone that has played a role in our success, we couldn't do it without the love
and support of so many wonderful people.
