Project Sunshine�s Third Annual Golf Classic is most successful to-date!

Project Sunshine held its Third Annual Golf Classic on September 23, 2013 at Century Country Club in Purchase, New York.

Project Sunshine is tremendously appreciative of event chair, Natan Bibliowicz, and host committee members Kyle Blackmon, Kay Booth, Mike Conway, Danny Frank, Michael Goldman, Douglas Hammond, Doris Meister, Linda Neely, Peter Scaturro, Douglas Scherr, MD, and Robert Vogliano, for generously donating their time to help raise a record-breaking $470,000 in support of our programs that reach 100,000 children and their family members worldwide each year.

Professional Golf Champion and 14-time PGA tour winner, Hal Sutton, returned this year to lead a golf clinic and perform his legendary long drive. Miss USA Erin Brady attended as Program Ambassador and shared her memorable volunteer experiences with the attendees. The golf foursomes then took to the green for a shotgun start to the day�s tournament. Out on the course, players enjoyed healthy snacks by Chef Palak Patel, a recent winner of the hit TV show Chopped, and beer from Captain Lawrence Brewing Company of Elmsford, NY.

After a sunny round of golf, the players and dinner guests mingled at cocktail hour and shopped the raffle prizes while a live band played classic pop and rock tunes. The evening�s program began with Hal Sutton presenting the golfer awards to lucky prize recipients. Reporter Magee Hickey of PIX 11 News and NY1 spoke warmly about the impact of Project Sunshine�s programs on children and families. Finally, C. Hugh Hildesley, Executive Vice President at Sotheby�s, took to the podium to lead an exciting live auction.
