Another Amazing Charity Golf Outing

It was a beautiful sunny day at Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington, New York. There were about 100 golfers who came out to tee off at noon.

Before tee off, the Chamber and Lions Club had an excellent buffet breakfast, and the Stretch Labs team (from the NHP location) was there to stretch the golfers so they could have a wonderful time on the course with increased range and little thought to muscle or joint pain. One of the golfers hit a 50 ft. putt!!

Ed Stone and his driver Gail Henry-Murray, carted around to get great pictures of everyone having fun on this beautiful course. Once finished golfing, everyone returned to enjoy cocktails and appetizers and was then offered a memorable dinner to honor true heroes, Mike and Mary Stein. William (Buddy) Sheehan of the Lion's Club gave a heartwarming and touching tribute to these heroes.

Our elected officials showed up to golf and dinner to present proclamations.

We must thank Chris Vulpis, Ralph Ventura Co-Chairs, and the golf committee -Mark Laytin, Richard DeMartino, Meghav Parikh, Ron Shapiro, Richard Pallisco, Richard Basulto, and Buddy Sheehan for putting everything together.  A special shout out to Richard DeMartino and Mark Laytin who offered their time and effort to collect the many prizes raffled off to raise funds for the charity. And of course, we cannot forget the following wonderful contributors to this event. President Cheryl Fajardo of NHP Chamber, Saveeta Barnes, and Lily Buonfrisco of  M&T Bank - Title Sponsor, Smitha Lukose-Khun Flushing Bank, Sheila McKeough, and Zulema Lopez -Roslyn Savings Bank, Jacqueline Ramos, and Monica Callier -Jovia FCU, Mary Modicaand Lee Pallisco, Cellini Lodge #2206), Allyson Swidler, Faith Daniels, and Debra Gambino and the incredible businesses and members who stepped up and helped to raise the most money we have raised for our Charities.
