Renee Taefi Baughman, M.D., and Lucy and Dominick Muto have been named co-chairs of The 2014 Premier, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center’s annual black tie dinner and entertainment gala.

Dr. Baughman, a physician with Women’s Medicine of Niagara, is chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. Ms. Muto is Vice-President of M & T Bank and Branch Manager of the Main and Cedar branch in Niagara Falls. Mr. Muto is employed at Sicoli & Massaro and is the owner of Reliable Property Service, LLC.

The Premier will honor Dr. Sujatha Addagatla and Nancy Gara.  Dr. Addagatla is a dedicated physician specializing in nephrology who has served Memorial patients since 1997.  A highly regarded Western New York banking executive, Nancy Gara was a founder of The Premier and a member of the Memorial Medical Center Board of Directors at the time of her death in May.

The Premier will be held Saturday, Jan. 18 at the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel, 310 Fourth St., Niagara Falls.

Last year’s gala sold out with more than 900 guests from throughout the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region. With a history of headline entertainers that includes the Four Tops, Three Dog Night, Jon Secada and the Spinners, it is the “event not to miss.”  The event also features a silent auction.

Niagara Cup Classic

One hundred sixty-five golfers took to the links Tuesday (June 4) at the Niagara Falls Country Club for the 22nd Annual Niagara Cup Classic golf tournament.  The tournament raised $40,000, which will support healthcare programming at the hospital, particularly cardiac and stroke services.

Capturing the Niagara Cup with a best two balls net team score of 124 were, from left, Ron Forster, Dennis Hooper, Kevin Scott and Jim Ciancio (not pictured). 

Women’s all-star champions were Brandi Goliminski, Alanna Wustrack, Annette Pecenco and Bev Taibi.

Jamie Miller carded a 65 to capture first place honors for gross score.

This year’s Niagara Cup Classic was chaired by Alan Meholick, M.D., an invasive and clinical cardiologist with Buffalo Heart Group, LLP, and Douglas Mooradian, director of marketing and public relations for Health Systems Services.  Since it was first held in 1992, the tournament has raised more than $1 million for programs and equipment at Memorial.
