Ricky Zinter passed away in 2015 and we all suffered a great loss.

Sean Torchia, Matt Elliott, Joe LoPresti, and Mike McCarthy along with his family, the Penfield community and beyond have lost a beloved friend and teammate. We have established the Annual Round Fore Ricky Memorial Golf Tournament to honor Ricky's memory, and to raise funds for a scholarship in his name. With 100% of the proceeds from the tournament, we hope to benefit a prospective college student who personifies Ricky's spirit through the annual scholarship.

We celebrate Ricky's life with his many friends and family from Penfield, Rutgers, Denver, Winter Park and beyond.
