September 20, The Rotary Club of Patchogue and the Fuoco family will sponsor the 43rd Annual Fuoco Memorial Golf Feastival at Bellport Country Club. Proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, which serves special-needs children and young adults ages 6-21 with mental or physical disabilities. Throughout the history of this golf outing, over $1 million has been donated to support the camp.
Registration and continental breakfast start at 9 a.m. Shotgun tee-off is at 11 a.m. At this year’s tournament, the Rotary Club and the Fuoco family will honor Steven Taitz of the law firm Roe Taroff Taitz& Portman LLP. Mr. Taitz concentrates his practice in state and federal litigation, particularly in the areas of creditors’
rights, commercial litigation and criminal court matters.
Mr. Taitz began his career as an Assistant State Attorney in Dade County, Florida, under then-State Attorney General Janet Reno, where he served as an assistant in the narcotics
Unit and as a Felony Division Chief. He is currently a member of the Suffolk County Academy of Law, the Suffolk County Bar Association and the Commercial Law League of America. He has also served in the community as a member of the Board of Directors of Brookhaven Memorial hospital Center, the advisory board of Brookhaven Youth Court, the Rotary Club of Patchogue and as a past trustee of the Bayport-Blue Point Public Library. He is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the University of Miami School of Law.
The camp has special meaning to the Fuoco family. Steve’s sister, Beth Ann, attended the camp between the ages of 3 and 21. While she attended the camp, their father regularly donated money to Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. In 1969, the Fuoco
family established its inaugural Fuoco Memorial Golf Feastival.
What makes this golf outing so unique are the “Food Feastivals” offered throughout the course. There will be various “Feastival Stands” featuring an Italian ice stand; pasta bar and wine tasting; Italian figs, grapes and fruits; clams on the half shell; the famous “Italian Gourmet Deli”; a homemade zeppoli and cannoli stand, and a BrickHouse Brewery micro-beertasting tent.
Every hole will have a contest for “Longest Drive” or “Closest to the Pin”, plus a “Hit-The-Green Challenge” on every par 3. In addition, there will be a prize for a hole-in-one, courtesy of Brown’s Jeep Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat. The round of golf is followed by a cocktail hour,
