BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Community Fund’s 29th annual Golf Outing was held at Leewood Golf Club on Monday, May 11, with 112 participants golfing and helping the Community Fund move closer to meeting its 2015 fundraising goal of $635,000.
These funds enable grants to be provided for non-profit organizations that provide critical services across the Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe communities.
The day kicked off with a putting competition, followed by a scramble play format, complete with prizes and hole-in-one contests. Comizio Orthodontics and Pepe Auto Group sponsored the two hole-in-one contests, with a $10,000 cash prize that awaited golfers at one hole and a choice of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Infiniti or Cadillac awaited them at the other.
Automobiles were also on display thanks to Mercedez-Benz of White Plains; Mercedez-Benz of New Rochelle; Porsche of Larchmont; Pepe Cadillac and Pepe Infiniti.
Although no one was able to make that hole-in-one, which has eluded golfers now for 29 years, there were still plenty of awards to go around.
The first-place team went to Fred Taylor, Dave Harris, Bill Regan and Richard Thomas, and second place was taken by the team of Joe Dooley, Jim Hendry, Joe Petrone and Dave Flannery.
The winner of the putting contest, sponsored by Bertine, Hufnagle, Headly, Zeltner, Drummond & Dohn, LLP and Entergy, was Bill Regan.
Funds from the golf outing comprise about 20 percent of the overall revenue the Community Fund raises each year.
“We are incredibly grateful for the tremendous amount of community support we receive each year to make our golf outing a success,” noted Jim Rotenberg, golf co-chair. “We especially want to acknowledge our Grand Sponsors, Pepe Auto Group and The Raffiani Foundation for their continued generosity.”
“We couldn’t be more pleased with our results and appreciate everyone who donated and/or came out to participate. The money raised at our annual golf outing greatly enhances The Community Fund’s ability to provide the necessary funding and support to the many wonderful nonprofit organizations that serve the residents of our community," said board chair Katharine Outcalt.
