The Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center Foundation has named a Niagara Falls chiropractor and a local business executive chairpersons of the 24th annual Niagara Cup Classic.
Dr. Michael Cardamone and Douglas Mooradian will chair the annual fundraiser Tuesday, June 9. To accommodate the event's growth, golfers this year will play at two courses: Niagara Falls Country Club and Hickory Stick Golf Course. Both courses will serve a barbecue lunch followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. sharp.
Mooradian, who returns for a sixth year as the tournament's co-chair, is the director of customer relations for Pine Pharmaceuticals. He is involved in a variety of community organizations and is a 2014 recipient of Buffalo Business First's 40 Under 40 award. In 2013, he was the recipient of the Niagara Falls Education Foundation's Emerging Leader Alumni Award.
Cardamone, the owner of Cardamone Chiropractic in Niagara Falls, is well versed in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, especially those resulting from motor vehicle accidents. He is the 2014 recipient of the Niagara Falls Education Foundation's Emerging Leader Alumni Award, the Niagara USA Chamber's Small Business of the Year Award and the Main Street Business and Professional Association's Business of the Year Award.
Since the inaugural tournament in 1992, the Niagara Cup Classic has raised more than $1 million for medical equipment and health care programs at Memorial Medical Center. The Medical Center Foundation presents the tournament.
Money raised at this year's tournament will benefit the Golisano Center for Community Health. Groundbreaking for the new center is scheduled for this spring.
