OHEL GOLF CLASSIC BENEFITS CHILDREN!
175 Tee off at Glen Oaks Club!
A great day of golfing fun, camaraderie for a great cause and great prizes, giveaways and sumptuous food took place recently at the Glen Oaks Country Club in Old Westbury, NY when more than 175 golfers teed off to benefit OHEL. Players were spread out over three, nine hole courses and there were contests for the Top Foursomes, Putting, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Hole-in-One as the players completed the tournament. The clear blue skies and perfect weather matched the perfect enthusiasm and fun had by all players and sponsors at the event.
Best of allâ€”all proceeds benefitted OHELâ€™s Children Home and Family Services â€“ a winning event for players and OHEL.
A fantastic day featured a scramble format; special gifts for every golfer, including a classy OGIO golf stand bag, courtesy of Infinity Land Services LLC; and numerous raffles with super prizes. Hungry golfers enjoyed a full breakfast; a BBQ on the course; a cocktail hour reception and sit-down Awards Dinner at the conclusion of the tournament, when the winning foursomes and raffle winners were announced and the prizes awarded. Â
Winners included: First Place: Danny Abrams, Jim Hynes, Baruch Kleinman, David Braka; Second Place: Jason Curry, Rabbi Yaakov Horowitz, Ric Weinstein and Brian Curry; Third Place Gregory Rhein, David Flamholtz, Eli Goldschmidt, Shawn Rosenthal. Â Longest Drive winners included Ruvane Vilinsky, Jack Kadosh, and Shelby Rosenberg; Closest to the Pin included Scott Topiel, Eli Kohn, and Donny Frankel.Â
