New Hope Community Welcomes Golfers and Sponsors to 11th Annual Wallace Berkowitz Outing on May 17th
Loch Sheldrake, NY (April 1, 2021): The 11th annual Wallace Berkowitz Golf Outing will be back in full swing on Monday, May 17th at West Hills Country Club, in Middletown, NY, to benefit the NHC Foundation at New Hope Community, a leading human services organization in Loch Sheldrake, NY, supporting and empowering the lives of men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Registration is now open and foursomes are expected to fill up quickly.
The Outing will follow COVID-19 safety protocols, as it did during the 2020 event, without sacrificing the level of challenge or excitement. In addition to 18 holes of golf, guests will be treated to breakfast and lunch on the course, gifted with a Callaway putter and can enter a raffle for a chance to win a Callaway Mavrik golf club set valued at $2,350! Proceeds from the event support the New Hope Foundation.
“The Wallace Berkowitz Cup is the NHC Foundation’s most significant fundraising event of the year and helps to fund innovative programs and essential services that empower men and women with disabilities to live more full, independent lives, including residential services, holistic health, innovative arts, sports and recreational activities, adaptive technology, supported employment and volunteer opportunities,” said Tom Burnham, Executive Director of the NHC Foundation. “We truly appreciate all the support of our sponsors and golfers each and every year.”
The event honors the late Wallace Berkowitz – an esteemed local accountant and former Trustee of New Hope Community who was a lifelong advocate for people with disabilities. The outing in his memory is one of New Hope Community’s most popular and successful events of the year, bringing together generous community members and corporate sponsors.
“This has been a challenging and isolating year for all of us, and this is the perfect opportunity to get out and safely do something fun that will have a positive impact,” said Debra McGinness, Chief Executive Officer of New Hope Community. “We are looking forward to another successful day out on the course among friends which will allow us to continue to deliver high quality services uniquely tailored to the people we support.”
