On Monday, Aug. 19, the Glen Head Country Club hosted the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County’s (HMTC) annual golf outing.
A record amount of $200,000 was raised at the outing as David Rosen, golf outing chair greeted 136 fellow golfers. He was joined by Co-Chairs Stewart Hescheles, Len Novick and Matt Skidell.
Since 2007, Rosen’s involvement with the HMTC has become more significant including serving as chairman of the golf outing fundraiser and as the organization’s vice chairman. Steven Markowitz, HMTC chairman, presented David with a plaque expressing the board’s appreciation for his five years of service as the golf outing chairman.
A live auction was held in the ballroom and, combined with the silent auction, brought in close to $25,000 for HMTC’s education programs and services. Howard Maier, HMTC chairman emeritus, started the auction off before 250 enthusiastic guests and long-time supporter Neil Rosenfeld started the bidding.
The auction ended with a special appearance by Adam Richman, best known as the host of “Man vs. Food,” the highest rated show in the history of the Travel Channel. He attended in the memory of his grandma Rose, a Holocaust survivor.
