Longtime friends Lou Viviani and Steve Campanaro are spending their day today like many friends — out on the golf links.

The pair, however, won’t just play a friendly round of 18 holes — instead, they’ll add another 82 holes — for a total of 100 holes of golf at the Teugega Country Club — going from sun-up to sun-down to raise funds and awareness for two Rome-based charities.

Viviani will golf for Rome Hospital Foundation while Campanaro for the Michelle M. Adey Memorial Fund as they continue their annual fundraising tradition that is now entering its’ eighth year.

Viviani is a member of the Rome Hospital Foundation’s Board of Directors, and donations he raises will help fund necessary medical equipment purchases for Rome Memorial Hospital.

Campanaro is raising funds to support the Michelle M. Adey Memorial Fund to assist in that organization’s efforts to 

provide financial assistance to families who children face serious illness.

Contributions can mailed to: Viviani Law Firm, 220 West Court St., Rome, NY 13440 with checks payable to the “Rome Hospital Foundation.”

Contributes can also be sent to the Teugega Country Club Pro Shop, Attn: Steve Campanaro, 6801 Golf Course Rd., Rome, NY 13440 with checks payable to the “Michelle M. Adey Memorial Fund.”

Rome Hospital Foundation provides vital philanthropic support to Rome Memorial Hospital, according to officials.

Rome Hospital Foundation is a separate 501 (c) (3) and an integral partner in Rome Memorial Hospital’s mission to provide quality healthcare with compassion.

Rome Hospital Foundation accepts gifts on behalf of Rome Memorial Hospital and works to fund both present and future equipment and program needs, the organization said.

The mission of the Michelle M. Adey Memorial Fund is to provide financial assistance to families of dependent children who suffer from serious illness of any kind.

Since the organizations’ inception in 1986, the Michelle M. Adey Memorial Fund has provided more than $811,887 in assistance to families in need.
