On Thursday, October 15, 2015 golfers came out to support Smile Farms’ Inaugural Golf Outing in Sands Point, NY. After an exciting day on the course, our guests enjoyed an exceptional dinner and participated in our Silent Auctions, while waiting to hear the day’s results. The day consisted of friendly competition and impressive foursomes.
Our emcees for the night, Frank Marzano of GM Advisory Group, Inc., and Jay Scansaroli spoke to the crowd regarding the real reason for their attendance; to shine light on our organization. Frank and Jay spoke about their personal involvement with our non-profit and what steps others can take to get involved.
A common misconception with non-profit organizations is that the only way to contribute is through large monetary donations. Although we will never shy away from any possible funding, we also embrace volunteers who can share their professional expertise and become advocates. We are in the mindset of pooling together our resources and encourage others to do the same! We call for skilled individuals who will help us fill the information gaps and take our aspirations to the next level.
The success of our outing was a result of our guests, staff, corporate and individual sponsors. With their help, a total of $26,000 was raised! The anticipated date for our next golf outing will be Monday, September 26, 2016.
