26th Annual Salute to Excellence

In November 2015, in the presence of 400 guests at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center, President and CEO John Urban accepted the Salute to Excellence award on behalf the Greater Rochester Health Foundation for its transformative work to improve the health of children, adults and entire neighborhoods throughout the nine-county area. The Health Foundation works in partnership with MCC and the Rochester City School District to make the Healthy Hero Summer Camp available to 450 deserving city children.

During the Salute to Excellence dinner, outstanding alumni Stephen Pasquarella ’83, Kimberley Willis DM ’90, JoAnne M. Ryan RN, MHA ’79 and Todd K. Baxter ’10 were proudly inducted into the MCC Alumni Hall of Fame. Liberal arts student Candice Greer told guests how she has learned about opportunity, ambition and success as a member of MCC’s women’s volleyball team and as a Healthy Hero Summer Camp employee. Honorary Committee Chair Naomi Silver, president and chief operating officer of the Rochester Red Wings, led the extraordinary celebration, raising $60,000 (net) to support student success and program excellence at MCC.

32th Annual Scholarship Open


32nd Annual Scholarship Open

At the MCC Foundation’s 32nd Annual Scholarship Open in June, golfers played the West Course at historic Oak Hill Country Club. Foundation Director Phil Yawman and Tony Soprano ’92 (DiMarco Constructors) served as tournament co-chairs. The event raised more than $108,000 (net) for MCC students.

Yawman’s team of Rick Brienzi ’79, Jeff Davis and Tony Tortorella came in as the low gross winners with a score of 61. LaBella Associates’ team of Ross Ciulla, Sergio Esteban, Mark Gregor and Robert Healy captured the low net trophy with a score of 57. Andy Juskiw captured the prize for men’s longest drive and Mike Kortan took home the prize for men’s closest to the pin, while Mary Beth Rumble was the celebrated winner of both the women’s longest drive and closest to the pin.

Golfers heard from Brighton Campus Student Government President Blake Moore, who shared his perspective on the importance of scholarships for MCC students. His remarks
were the inspiration behind guests raising nearly $40,000 in the traditional scholarship call led by MCC Alumni Hall of Fame member and Foundation Director Don Jeffries ’71 (VisitRochester).
