Golf for 4 Walls

Our donors are diverse. And also generous. And oh so creative.

Dave Root, on the left in this picture, bought firewood from 4W board member Bill Stock in 2010. They got talking, and the talk turned to Nicaragua and 4 Walls.

#us.001“The idea of going down there really appealed to me,” said Dave, “but I knew that was a dream that probably wouldn’t come true.”

So Dave, who owns the Root 5 Waterfront restaurant outside of Buffalo NY, decided he could help in another way. He decided to designate 4 Walls as the charity for his restaurant’s annual golf tournament.

This will be Dave’s third tournament to support the 4 Walls Project. The tournament will be at the Gowanda Country Club on June 30. Dave expects about 60 players who will have lunch at the club, play golf, and return for a steak dinner — with open bar and prizes — at Dave’s Root 5 restaurant.
