11th Annual "Friends Fore Mercy" Golf Tournament Raises Over $33,000 for St. James Mercy Foundation

The 11th annual "Friends Fore Mercy" to benefit St. James Mercy Foundation raised $33,646 at the event held Friday, September 26, at Twin Hickory Golf Club in Hornell. Twenty-six teams and forty-eight sponsors participated in this year’s tournament, as well as twenty-two volunteers from the hospital and community. The Foundation provides resources to benefit St. James Mercy Hospital, and all proceeds from the golf tournament will directly benefit the transformation of healthcare services in Hornell.

"We’re delighted to report that the proceeds from this year’s tournament surpassed 2013 by $10,000," said Sylvia Bryant, Foundation Executive Director. "That is indicative of the ongoing tremendous support for St. James Mercy. As we transform to a new model of care, we’re grateful to the community for its steadfast support for local healthcare services."

Local Artist, Jay Pullman, Shares Artwork with St. James Mercy Hospital
Press Release (PDF)

Arkport artist Jay Pullman, whose family has a longstanding connection with St. James Mercy Hospital (SJMH), has loaned a collection of prints to SJMH for display in its recently renovated lobby and emergency room hallway areas.

Pullman, a local artist of larger renown, shows his work widely around the greater Hornell area and has expanded into galleries in the Rochester area. A former teacher who came to painting as a passion, he draws inspiration from the natural environment of the Finger Lakes and the Southern Tier and from places as diverse as Provence and Tuscany.

Local Artist, Jay Pullman, Shares Artwork with St. James Mercy Hospital
Local artist, Jay Pullman, puts the finishing touches on the temporary display of his artwork at St. James Mercy Hospital.

"We are thrilled to have these beautiful prints displayed in the public areas of the hospital," said Sylvia Bryant, VP Mission Integration and Community Outreach. "They add a warm and inviting touch to our newly remodeled hallways and lobby."

Pullman has said that behind each of his works is "a thread of a story" that inspires the piece and also helps connect the viewer to the work of art. The current prints on display depict scenes from around the greater Hornell area and include "Sudden Storm," "Sun Valley Summer," "Waiting for Spring," "Newfield Family," and "On the Shore." All the prints are for sale, and the artist has generously pledged to donate sale proceeds to the St. James Mercy Foundation. In addition, some of Pullman’s artwork has been made into greeting cards, which are also available for sale in SJMH’s Aquinas gift shops starting next week.
