Get your drivers ready - the AHRC Foundation’s Margiotta Memorial Golf Outing takes place on Thursday, September 13 at The Muttontown Club in East Norwich. All proceeds support programs and services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year’s event will honor Roslyn Goldmacher, president and CEO of Long Island Development Corporation (LIDC) and Hon. Peter J. Schmitt, presiding officer of the Nassau County Legislature.
Goldmacher is an AHRC Foundation board member and longtime supporter of AHRC Nassau, where her sister has received services for many years. An attorney with a background in commercial lending, Goldmacher runs LIDC, a family of not-for-profit economic development organizations that she founded more than 30 years ago. Under her guidance, LIDC has directly loaned more than $1 billion in low-cost government and private sector loans to small businesses, while leveraging an additional $2.5 billion in funds for the economy and creating and retaining more than 60,000 jobs for the community.
Presiding Officer Schmitt is an original member of the Nassau County Legislature, first elected in 1995. He represents the 12th Legislative District, comprising Massapequa, Massapequa Park and portions of Seaford and North Massapequa. From 1984-1995, he served as commissioner of the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community and Youth Services and instituted a number of successful programs, including cultural and performing arts, a group activities program for people with disabilities, and numerous senior citizen service and recreational programs.
The Margiotta Memorial Golf Outing is held annually to benefit children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. There will be 18 holes of golf, prizes, brunch, grill on the course, cocktails on the terrace, and an awards buffet dinner. Tickets cost $450 per golfer, sponsorship opportunities are available.
