Gianna and Neal playing toss 🙂
Neal Mullane and Brian Sullivan, both Boston Fighters, run an annual golf tournament in memory of their mothers who both died from cancer.
The tournament began in 1997 in memory of Elaine M. Mullane. Elaine passed on in 1996 from ovarian cancer. She was a warm, caring, and beautiful person and we miss her every day. She the daughter, wife, and mother of Boston Firefighters and since her death she became an aunt and mother in law of Boston Firefighters. She is also the aunt, cousin, and daughter in law of Boston Police officers, and aunt to a Massport Firefighter. She has 2 beautiful grandchildren who inherited her eternal smile.
Elaine’s younger sister Deb Sullivan passed away a short time after her from cancer as well. She was also the daughter, wife, mother, and aunt of Boston Firefighters. We hold this event every year in their memory and contribute to causes they supported.
Over the past 14 years we have raised over $125,000 for various charities including; the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, the Jimmy Fund, the Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation, St. Francis House, Homes For Our Troops, the John P. Redmond Foundation, the Boston Firefighter’s Children’s Fund, and the recently established Mullane Family Scholarship.
We appreciate any support from corporate sponsors. We average 150 golfers every year with some years exceeding 200. This year, the 15th Annual MSMGT will be held on Friday August 10th at 10am. The day includes breakfast, 18 hole “Scramble” tournament, catered clam bake dinner, raffle, auction, and contests.
This year the proceeds will go towards funding the $1500 annual scholarship. The remainder will benefit the Boston Firefighter’s Children’s Fund. This fund assists families with kids from the Boston area who have sustained a loss due to fire.
We hope you can participate in this great day whether as a player, volunteer, or sponsor. Let’s keep the memories alive.
See you there,
Neal A. Mullane Jr.
Chairman, Mullane/Sullivan Memorial Fund
