WEST HAVEN, Jan. 4, 2017 — Longtime city businessman Frank Cuomo, owner of Elm Cafe at 124 Elm St., presented the 18th annual Elm Cafe Golf Tournament Monday, Oct. 17, at Alling Memorial Golf Club in New Haven.

The tournament, which benefits blood cancer research, raised $7,260 for the Stamford-based Connecticut Westchester Hudson Valley chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Since its inception in 1999, the event has collected $140,588 for the cause, Cuomo said.

“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has been very honored to be the recipient of these hard-earned funds over the last 17 years,” the nonprofit organization said in a statement.

LLS, the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, aims to cure leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Founded in 1949 and headquartered in Rye Brook, New York, LLS finances lifesaving blood cancer research worldwide and provides free information and support services. Details at www.lls.org.
