Engine 167 and Ladder 87 will host a memorial golf outing in honor of Lt. Martin Fullam and FF Carl Capobianco, both of whom died of World Trade Center-related illnesses. The memorial outing will be held at La Tourette Golf Course on Staten Island on Monday, September 16, 2013.
The fee to golf is $165.00 per golfer, which includes continental breakfast, golf, cart, lunch at the turn, a 2-hour BBQ, beer, soda and a golf shirt. There will be contests, prizes and raffles. The fee to come only for the BBQ is $60.00. Some hole sponsorships are available.
All proceeds will be donated to the FDNY Family Transport Foundation, a non-profit that tranports ill or injured firefighters and their families to hospitals, doctor visits and funerals.
FF Capobianco, 51, died of site-related cancer in 2011 after 20 years with the FDNY. Lt. Fullam, 56, suffered from polymyositis, a rare autoimmune disease, and pulmonary fibrosis, and had a double lung transplant in 2009. He died in February 2013.
