Dr. Alan Meholick and Douglas Mooradian will head the 22nd annual Niagara Cup Classic fundraiser for Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center on June 4 at the Niagara Falls Country Club.

Meholick, who is board certified in internal medicine and cardiology, is an invasive and clinical cardiologist with Buffalo Heart Group and a clinical assistant professor of medicine at the University at Buffalo.

Mooradian, who returns for a fourth year as tournament co-chairman, is the director of marketing and public relations for Health Systems Services, providers of home medical equipment and the developers of customized injury prevention programs for health care workers in long-term and acute-care settings.

Since the inaugural tournament in 1992, the Niagara Cup has raised more than $1 million for medical equipment and health care programs at the hospital. The tournament is presented by the Medical Center Foundation.

Money raised at this year’s tournament will support health care programming at the hospital, particularly cardiac and stroke services.
