The Pine Hollow County Club in nearby East Norwich has just completed its annual Charity Week with an outstanding turnout and record-breaking contributions from its members, all for local causes.
Pine Hollow Country Club, celebrating its 51st year as a five-star, full-service venue, features a superior 18-hole golf course, fine dining, swimming and tennis and other activities in an ornate historic Vanderbilt mansion, replete with all the modern conveniences of a world class club. Somewhat hidden off Route 25A in East Norwich, nestled among giant chestnut trees, the Club has recently undergone extensive renovations.
Decades of charitable contributions to worthy organizations have placed Pine Hollow at the forefront of philanthropic circles.
Groups such as the American Cancer Society, St. Francis Hospital, Island Harvest, North Shore/Plainview Hospital, Developmental Disabilities Institute, UJA, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, RobinHood/Hurricane Sandy, among many others, have all been the recipients of proceeds from previous years’ efforts.
This year, events included a kick-off Pub night, a full day’s Golf Championship Challenge, and a Saturday evening Gala, themed ‘Rock of Ages’ complete with themed costumes. A charity Tennis Event was also held. Games of chance, Chinese and silent auctions, all with fabulous prizes, contributed to the excitement.
