What a beautiful day for golf!!  We haven’t been able to say that every year but 2019 was perfect.  We started the day by honoring John Savelloni, CoBI Board member who passed away suddenly in June.  With his family and colleagues from Oliver Heating and Cooling, we named our annual golf clinic, the “John Savelloni All Abilities Golf Clinic” and presented his wife, Christine and son, Nicholas with a replica flag.  It was a very special part of the day.

Our sponsors were the heroes again this year.  We had full support from all of them and raised important funds for our Grant Program and all of the educational activities the Council takes on throughout the year. 


Special recognition to our Presenting Sponsor, USI; our Event Sponsor, Alliant Employee Benefits; our Virtual Auction Sponsor, Piazza Subaru; our Title Sponsor, ReMed and to Lou Namm and the Eastern Amputee Golf Association for their generous contributions and participation in the days’ events.

On the golf front, some very good play resulted in amazing scramble scores and winners. 


Through a match of cards, here are the scramble team results:

1st Place with a 58: Team Subaru with Mike Hinkle, Manish Upadhyay, Andrew Bernat, and Dan Gnias
