Funds will go toward quality-of-life enhancing activities and amenities for Elant residents
GOSHEN, N.Y. (August 6, 2014) – The Elant Foundation’s 7th Annual Elant Golf Classic, which took place on Monday, July 28, raised more than $60,000 – a 46 percent increase over the funds raised from last year’s event. More than 140 golfers, volunteers and dinner guests came together for this year’s outing held at Trump National Golf Club – Hudson Valley in Hopewell Junction.
The event’s proceeds will go toward quality-of-life enhancing activities and amenities for Elant residents.
“Elant is pleased with the overwhelming success of this year’s event,” said Melissa McCoy, Vice President of the Elant Foundation and Community Relations. “We are especially grateful to everyone who attended, played golf, supported and sponsored the outing. The number of businesses in our community who continue to show their support, year after year, is vital to Elant, its mission, our residents and their families.”
Sponsors were highlighted throughout the day’s events on programs, golf carts and signage, including this year’s title sponsor, Life Med. Regarded as one of “the best golf outings in the region,” there were several on-course specialties, including chair massages, tastings, samplings and a hole-in-one prize sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls, among others.
The first place winners on the men’s team were Art Anderson, Ron Flaherty, Mike Rostanzo and Chuck Benfer. The mixed team winners were Barry Rothenberg, Ellen Rothenberg, Dan Rothenberg and Bick Saviano, Jr.
