Every other ad on local TV is begging for Golisano Children's Hospital, restaurants ask for donations, and then the junk mail shows up twice weekly. What's the story? Anyone else sick of this constant barrage of fund raising?

Why doesn't Golisano ante up some more cash?

Even the freakin dollar store is asking for donations.

I real tired of every store asking for extra money.

Golisano wants his name plastered everywhere, but never covers the full cost of any of his many projects. He pledges just enough to make sure he gets full recognition. In 20 years, no one will be remember it was funded by thousands of donations from unknown people.

If my name can go next to his on the building, in 2400 point font, I'll kick in $10. Seems reasonable.

With U of R's enormous endowment (in the billions), why aren't they kicking in some money? They will benefit from the revenue produced. It's a great cause, handled very badly,

Golisano likes to see his name in lights everywhere. It's an ego thing.

Dave Feidler, CEO of ESL on TV asking us to donate to the Golisanos Children's Hospital . How about Dave Feidler donating his money?. He makes millions. I find it funny that the rich ask us to donate. I just saw an attorney firm asking for money for the Children Hospital on TV. Like those rich attorneys can not donate.

Feidler is a self-serving buffoon. He should be more concerned about unrest in his own organization, and taking better care of his grossly underpaid employees. He is another CEO that likes the notoriety that the TV cameras bring.

If the U of R can pay many of their hospital executives 7 figure salaries, maybe it's time to dip into their bank account and fund the remainder of the Golisano Memorial. Stop pinging the community around the clock.

Dave Feidler is on a vanity trip to the moon. He could care less about his employees or the Children's hospital. Most of his employees hate him. Just makes him look good to the community on TV. No money of his goes to the children's hospital. If any money goes its ESL's members money. Not his.

Public begging goes on unceasingly. Every day my mail is filled with this organization and that organization looking for a hand out. My phone rings all day with people trying to sell me this and that. All of the mail goes straight to the trash and all phones calls are hung up on. I am very selective on who and what I contribute to. Remember charity starts at home.

This will not be a charity hospital for kids. U of R will receive a substantial income from the patients - year after year. This is like being asked to contribute to McDonalds or Walmart. The Children's Hospital should be privately funded by Mr. Big and the University.

This is not St. Jude, where care is entirely free to families. It's a business that charges for their services.

Someone needs to tell Dave Feidler of ESL this. He is in my face every night. I am sick of his bobble head puss.

Perhaps mr. feidler should use some donations to hire more freakin tellers so we don't have to wait 15 minutes in line.Service has tanked in recent years. Luckily, there are more choices in credit unions.

Welfare is welfare and the UR Medicine has received more of it then all the inner-black welfare moms combined.

Poor place to bank for sure. They need to fix The Credit Union first, not worry about the childerns Hospital. Very Poor service. They keep adding branches and the service goes down even more.
