Brendan Donohue

Memorial Golf Tournament

The Brendan Donohue Memorial Golf Tournament benefits the ALS Association of Upstate New York and the Brendan Donohue '84 Memorial Scholarship Fund at Clarkson University. To date, the tournament has raised more than $140,000 for these two great causes.

In 2009, after a college fraternity brother and close friend of Richard's, Brendan Donohue, was diagnosed with ALS ("Lou Gehrig's disease"), Richard, with the help of Brendan's family and friends and Tau Delta Kappa Fraternity from Clarkson University, started the Brendan Donohue Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the ALS Association of Upstate, New York. Then, in 2011, the Brendan Donohue '84 Memorial Scholarship Fund was established at Clarkson University. The tournament is held the first Saturday in June at The Links @ Erie Village located in East Syracuse, New York.
