New York, NY, June 30, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- On a picturesque day at Fresh Meadow Country Club, over 140 friends and supporters of OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services teed off at the 12th Annual OHEL Rosemil Healthcare Golf Classic. Eve & Stephen Milstein & Rosemil Healthcare were once again the generous benefactors of this year’s event. Omni Managed Health, Infinity Land Services, AirMark, and Hawke & Co. Outfitters were also major sponsors.
OHEL’s Golf Classic chairpersons Ben Englander, Israel Kaufman, Jonathan Marks, Jeffrey Schwartz, and Michelle Sulzberger worked tirelessly recruiting friends and sponsors, creating this momentous event for an extraordinary charity.
Assemblymen Walter T. Mosley and Phil Goldfeder, advocates for mental health initiatives in the Greater New York City areas, joined OHEL in their even greater causes at this golf event. OHEL provides mental health services to thousands of individuals and families and works closely with elected officials to ensure access to their constituents.
It was a day of lively camaraderie and friendly competition, all for a great cause. Golfers enjoyed a lavish breakfast, a barbecue lunch on the greens later in the afternoon, and a delicious buffet dinner catered by Main Event-Mauzone Caterers.
There was an awards ceremony dinner in the country club’s ballroom where the winning golfers received trophies and raffle winners were announced and prizes were awarded. During the dinner, Michelle Sulzberger introduced OHEL’s feature video “Journey to New Beginnings,” an emotionally moving short film that follows up on various foster children whose lives were transformed by the assistance of OHEL’s legendary Milton & Molly Schulman Foster Care Program and its accomplishments. Everyone in the room was clearly touched by the film and OHEL’s efforts to provide peace for those who may experience traumatic events.
After the film, great raffle prizes were awarded. These included autographed sports memorabilia from Alex Rodrigez, Eli Manning, Shaquille O'Neil, and Joe Namath, to name just a few. Special Yankees and Mets game tickets and tech gear, such as the latest Apple iPad, were also among the raffle prizes.
Proceeds from the OHEL Rosemil Healthcare Golf Classic benefit the thousands of children and families impacted by the various programs and services provided by OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services.
