2018 Muriel’s Breath of Life Golf Raffle

The sixth Muriel’s Breath of Life Golf Raffle included three wonderful golf courses, Sunnehanna Country Club, St. Clair Country Club and Longue Vue Club.

The 2018 raffle was made possible by the generosity of Sam Catanese, Rege McClelland and Mike George who were the respective donors for each of the courses. Thank you to each of them and to all the individuals who were kind enough to buy tickets.

We sold all 100 tickets! In mid-April the winning tickets were determined by the pick three lottery. Fran Solano, Joe Cafaro and John Robosson were the lucky winners. Hopefully they will have bright sunny days and a wonderful round of golf with friends.

The money raised from this event was used to support the endowment.


We are excited to announce the MBOL golf raffle for 2018. This year’s raffle presents a tremendous opportunity to play one of the three great golf courses listed below.

Sunnehanna Country Club (threesome)

St. Clair Country Club (foursome)

Longue Vue Club (foursome)

Sunnehanna, located in Johnstown, is a wonderful course that has hosted the Sunnehanna Amateur for the past 64 years. This is one of the premier amateur events in the country. There have been many notable participants with winners that include Ben Crenshaw, Brad Faxon, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.  You can have the chance to play this great and storied golf course.  Closer to home you will have the potential to play two venerable Pittsburgh courses, St. Clair Country Club and the Longue Vue Club.  As you may remember there are only 100 tickets sold and there are 3 winning tickets. Therefore for only $100 you will have a reasonable chance of winning a great day of golf with friends.

Because of the generosity of our golf sponsors, 100% of the raffle proceeds go directly to the patients with Cystic Fibrosis.  Our mission is to identify the patients in need and provide funds to help them meet the out of pocket expenses that occur with treating their chronic disease.

I would like to thank our sponsors—Sam Catonese (Sunnehanna), Rege McClelland (St. Clair) and Mike George (Longue Vue) for their great support and generosity.

The winning tickets will be determined by the last  2 numbers from the evening Pick 3 number of the Pa. Daily Lottery on April 17th (Sunnehanna), April 18th (St. Clair) and April 19th (Longue Vue).
