On Monday, September 23rd, the Long Island Chapter celebrated its 21st Golf Outing and honored one of their own, John Gordon. He has been volunteering for the Foundation for over 25 years and is one of the chapter’s Chief Wish Coordinators.
The fundraiser was once again held at the prestigious St. George’s Golf and Country Club in East Setauket. This course was named one of the top 100 courses in the United States.
Golfers had a beautiful warm, sunny day with a light breeze. After their day on the course, attendees tried their luck to win a prize from the extensive array of raffles. Cocktail hour featured a pasta station and a number of tasty passed hors d’oeuvres. A buffet style dinner followed with more delicious food.
The highlight of the evening was the honoree’s emotional address to our guests (To see his speech, please click here). He truly drove home the mission of the Foundation – our mission for the past 37 years is the children…their smiles, dreams, hopes and memories.
We thank all of our sponsors, attendees, volunteers and St. George’s for another successful event.
