Tom Golisano donated $4 million for an athletic complex at Ave Maria. A native of Rochester, N.Y., Golisano made his money as the founder of Paychex payroll processing company and also owns the Buffalo Sabres. Golisano, who has long history in New York state politics, changed his official residence to Naples earlier this year in order to save more than $5 million dollars a year in taxes. He wrote an editorial about the move in the New York Post. Ave Maria’s future “Tom Golisano Field House” will include a gym, training rooms, weight training center, locker rooms for home and away teams and offices for coaches, said Tom Monaghan, the university’s founder. It will seat about 950 people.
