5th Annual Elant Golf Classic to Raise Funds for Residential Improvements, Upgrades

Event to be held at Dutchess Golf & Country Club

Goshen, N.Y. (June 19, 2012) The Elant Foundation’s 5th Annual Elant Golf Classic is slated for Thursday, July 12, 2012, at the Dutchess Golf and Country Club in Poughkeepsie. The event is open to the public and sponsored by Med-World, an Omnicare Company.


Proceeds will benefit the 2012 fundraising campaign, “The New Elant Dining Experience,” which will revolutionize the residential dining experience at all Elant locations. Improvements are set to include an array of menu selections for each course, personalized tableside care and a new, restaurant-style environment where residents can share the experience with family and friends. Last year’s golf outing raised $51,000, which went toward the purchase of laptops and Wi-Fi for each Elant location, so residents can stay in touch with long-distance family members.


“Elant is looking forward to making this another enjoyable and successful golf outing,” said Melissa McCoy, Director of Corporate Initiatives for Elant Foundation. “The support the Foundation receives from so many generous participants and sponsors is indispensable. The funds raised help to provide an enhanced quality of life for all of our residents.”


Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch on the patio at 11 a.m. A shotgun start will fire at noon, and golfing will conclude by 5:30 p.m. with cocktails, followed by dinner and awards at 6:15 p.m. Some of this year’s unique course specialties include a Margarita Tee-Off, courtesy of Texas Roadhouse; a Haagen Dazs Hole Out, courtesy of Rory Glynn; Hole in One Fruit Cups, courtesy of Edible Arrangements; What “Ales” Your Game? Sampling, courtesy of the Newburgh Brewing Company and more.


Members of the 2012 Golf Classic Committee are: Kevin Armistead, Melissa McCoy, Jennifer Riccardi, Ed Cuccurullo, Angelo Genova, Joe Peixoto, Tim Scannell, Margaret Skonberg, Michael Webb and Julie Whitney.

Guests will have a variety of opportunities to contribute to this year’s Golf Classic and support the 2012 campaign, including several sponsorships that will be featured on the course, as well as a cocktail and dinner sponsorship.
