The fifth annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing, held at the Hamlet Wind Watch Golf & Country Club in Hauppauge on June 22, was a terrific success, raising more than $50,000 in support of vital support programs for Winthrop’s pediatric oncology/hematology patients. More than 100 golfers braved threatening skies to play 18 holes for a great cause. Once the final players moved inside for dinner and awards, the sky filled with heavy rain and thunderstorms while the golfers further demonstrated their generosity, purchasing bundles of raffle tickets for an array of donated prizes.
The event was organized by founding Golf Outing chairman Michael C. Stroud, and co-chairs Rosemary Cinquemani and Frank Catelli.
Following the very successful event, the event co-chairs said, “We would like to thank everyone who has supported the children of the Cancer Center for Kids and their families with their generous donations. In spite of our current economic climate, our sponsors and guests opened their hearts and wallets to help make this our most successful event to date.”
