Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Rescue Mission of Utica was reminded once again of its important role in the community, with the presentation of a $8,000 check donated by family members of a man touched by its outreach.  Patrick Marley who died tragically in a swimming accident in 2009, completed a recovery program at the Mission before he joined the agency’s food service staff. Executive Director, Reverend Bill Dodge described Marley as a role model for others.

The funds raised at the second annual Patrick G. Marley Golf Tournament, will go toward a Memorial Scholarship fund in Marley’s name, and provide a number of services for those in the Mission’s Recovery Program.
