JFK AIR CARGO GOLF
DELIVERY WAS A SUCCESS
The JFK Air Cargo Association ( JFKACA) held is annual
Golf Outing to support St. Judes, and First Company
Pink Breast Cancer work.
Cargo people got together to get in 18 holes before the anticipated
ran started to fall. But regardless, the golfing went
on by many diehards who would rather get wet than lose
the opportunity to compete with old friends. The weather
did not dampen spirits as the JFKACA provided food and
refreshments during the brief drizzles. After the rain,
There was a spectacular view of Manhattan in the distance
as the sun set below a wall of clouds with a striking orangegold
sky with many players taking photos.
Board member Mike Bednarz also brightened the event
wearing a tropical flowered shirt, for the first time outshining
John Ryan who traditionally sports his Hawaiian one.
It was all good as Ryan emceed the event, thanked all participants
airlines for travel and introduced Donna Cioffi,
CEO, First Company Pink Breast Cancer organization.
She in turn thanked the members for their donation to
her company in their efforts to drive insurance to provide
mammograms earlier for women.
Running around to make sure all was well were cargo
members Dayna Harp, Laura Cascino, Jim Burnett, Pete
DeBenigno, and volunteer Tammy Card. All was good with
the food drinks, raffle prizes and 50/50.
Ryan announced that the monthly JFKACA meetings
