Despite the threat of looming thunderstorms, on Monday, July 27th, 60 people from Westchester and surrounding areas came out to participate in the 2015 Gilda’s Club Westchester Golf Classic at Fenway Golf Club in Scarsdale. The skies cleared up, allowing golfers to enjoy hours on the greens at one of Westchester’s most premier courses. Later in the evening, attendees were treated to a dinner, program and award ceremony for the afternoon’s competition.
During the program, Gilda’s Club Westchester member Alan Weiner, who’s been married for 48 years with two adult daughters, shared his story of being diagnosed with prostate cancer and undergone treatment. Alan spoke about all of the services he takes advantage of at Gilda’s Club Westchester, free of charge, and how that participating in these various programs has provided him a camaraderie where he feels safe to verbalize and express his emotions.
This event, which raised nearly $90,000, would not have been possible without the support of our event sponsors: Julie and Jason Monroe, Jon and Ellen Litt, Monticello Asset Management, The Stern Family, The Stuntz Family, EisnerAmper, SL Green Realty, Andy and Gerri Sommers, and The Container Store.
Thank you to Event Co-chairs Jason Monroe and Jon Litt as well as the rest of the Golf Classic committee: Michele and Wayne Benach, Carol Bennett, Steve and Debbie Chapin, Leslie Danish, Andrew Falk, Andy Sommers, Mayo Stuntz, Jane and Jim Stern, Harri Taranto, Gil and Susie Wang, and Gilda’s Club Westchester’s Board President, Cindy Valk-Danish.
Gilda’s Club Westchester relies solely on the generosity of our donors to provide free programming to men, women and children affected by cancer in our community. We could not continue to offer support groups, educational lectures and workshops – and much more – without your support.
