This year’s Pelham Civic Association Charity Golf Outing was held on Tuesday, June 18th at the Pelham Country Club, benefiting The Pelham Civics’ Good Neighbor Program, which has been assisting individuals and families in need for more than 25 years.
More than 60 golfers participated, each knowing that their involvement would continue to help improve the quality of life for the less fortunate throughout the community.
According to Pelham Civic Golf Outing Chair Tim Case, “Even with the rainy skies, it was a great day on the golf course and for this worthwhile cause. We are extremely grateful to the generous support of our players, sponsors, donors and volunteers who helped make it a success”.
Dr. Stanley Trocchia, Pelham Civic Chairman of the Good Neighbor Program, added, “Our Pelham Civic Association’s Good Neighbor Committee and our membership, work extremely hard throughout the year - with the generous support of the community - to fuel the needed resources that help the disadvantaged. Our Annual Benefit Golf Outing is our major ‘Good Neighbor’ fundraiser, specifically dedicated to this important program. We are very grateful to Chairman Tim Case and his Committee of Darrell Walsh and Mike Ming for making this year’s Outing another tremendous success.”
Pelham Civic President Ken Shirreffs summed up the event. “Our Benefit Golf Outing marks the conclusion of a very busy past few months for the Civics: Our Help a Child, Change a Life Initiative, Career Workshops at the High School, Summer Olympics, Community Awards Program, Memorial Day Parade participation, Senior Citizen events and this Outing were all very successful. I am extremely proud of our membership and their families.”
This summer, the Civics we are gearing up for their Fall fundraising season, and Annual Dinner Dance Gala on November 8th, honoring Persons of the Year Dr. Anne Frost and Honorable Peter DiPaola.
