Charleen Grzybowski Golf Event

Charleen Grzybowski’s legacy lives on through the generosity of her family. At the young age of 49, Charleen suffered a massive aneurysm that took her life. She was in a comatose state in the Intensive Care Unit at Mercy Hospital for three days before passing.

Her family was so grateful for the compassionate care she received at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo that they established a golf event to raised funds and awareness for stroke patients in our community.

Since 2009, Charleen’s husband of 29 years, Chris, and the couple’s five adult children have donated upwards of $71,500 to fund Stroke patient and family education and purchase essential Medical Rehabilitation equipment.
