Premier 2016 Honorees:
This year's event will honor Mark D. Perry, M.D. and the B. Thomas Golisano Foundation.


A respected radiologist, Dr. Mark D. Perry has been a member of the medical staff at Niagara Falls Memorial since 1983 and has served as chief of the radiology department since 1995.  A graduate of St. John Fisher College and Albany Medical College, he is a 15-year member of the Memorial Medical Center Board of Trustees and a member of several professional organizations including the Radiological Society of North America, Society of Nuclear Medicine, Buffalo Radiologic Society and American College of Radiology.

Dr. Perry is a principal in Radiology Solutions Associates, PLLC.

One of the largest private foundations in the United States dedicated exclusively to helping people with intellectual disabilities, the Golisano Foundation was launched in 1985 with an initial gift of $90,000 from Tom Golisano, the founder and director of Paychex and former owner of the Buffalo Sabres.

Today, with assets of more than $30 million, the Foundation is dedicated to funding programs, services and targeted initiatives that provide opportunities and support for those with intellectual disabilities and their families. 

Since the late 1990s, Tom Golisano's philanthropy has totaled more than $250 million. In 2014, he donated $3.5 million to Memorial Medical Center to support construction of the innovative new Golisano Center for Community Health. The Center will provide comprehensive integrated health care services to adults with special needs and their families. 

Chairpersons for The 2016 Premier are Drs. Amarpreet Grewal Bath and Shelley Bath and Janet and Dan DiPofi. Proceeds from the event will benefit the new Golisano Center for Community Health at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center.

The Premier, Memorial Medical Center Foundation's annual black tie gala, attracts a sold out crowd of more than 900 guests from throughout the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region and beyond.  For more information, please call the Foundation at (716) 278-4570.
