On July 12, North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center, a leading non-profit children’s mental health agency on Long Island, hosted the annual Jonathan Krevat Memorial Golf Classic at Engineers Country Club. The event, chaired by Paul Vitale, board member, and Jack Bransfield, raised over $55,000 for the Guidance Center.
A former client of the agency gave a moving keynote speech. He offered a personal account about coming to the Guidance Center as an 11-year-old after the death of his dad. He was on the wrong path – initiating confrontations, fighting, cutting school. He went on to say that if not for the Guidance Center, he would not have become the man that he is today - a solid family man and productive citizen. He thanked everyone in attendance, longtime and newer supporters, for all that they do to help families like his, during their time of greatest need.
