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.
