3rd Annual Frank Catalanotto Golf Classic to Benefit VBF, 8/5/13 in Huntington, NY

The Third Annual Frank Catalanotto Golf Classic held to Benefit the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation on August 5, 2013 at the Cold Spring Country Club in Huntington, NY set an all time record. There was full capacity for golfers, perfect weather, and record funds were raised for VBF.


The Cold Spring Country Club is beautiful and the staff did a great job as did Larry Battaglia and his staff (event coordinator).


The Catalnotto family continues to be the main sponsors and supporters of VBF and we could not continue without their continued support.


Thank you to everyone who participated in making this a successful event. As a plus, Dr. Linda was there to present the first VBF Frank Catalanotto Perseverance Scholarship to Evan Ducker. VBF will award one scholarship each year to a college bound student who exhibits perseverance. Frank Catalanotto is the author of the book “Heart and Hustle” which chronicles his life in major league baseball. The book explains that it takes a lot of heart and hustle to not only make it in the big league, but to make it in life. Along this theme, Dr. Linda created the VBF Frank Catalanotto Perseverance Scholarship to be awarded to a student who exhibits these same qualities, while living with a vascular birthmark. Applications will be accepted for the 2014 Scholarship after January 1, 2014.
