NEW YORK, NY -- Golf enthusiasts looking to spend a great day on the renowned greens at the historic Sleepy Hollow Country Club, Briarcliff Manor on Tuesday, August 30 in support of Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley better hurry and sign up now. Or risk being shut out from one of the year’s most notable happenings for a wonderful cause.
It’s Golf for Wishes, the third of four special signature events that Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley is presenting as part of its 30th anniversary celebration to help grant the pending wishes of more than 150 kids throughout the Hudson Valley with life-threatening medical conditions.
In addition to teeing off and playing on the challenging 103-year old course, supporters will enjoy cocktails and dinner following an afternoon of play on the unique 27-hole course.
Thomas J. Conklin, Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley President and CEO, said: “We are excited by the very strong interest that Golf for Wishes has generated, building on the success and momentum that our first two 30th anniversary signature events: the Frank and Friends concert at Tarrytown Music Hall that was headlined by legendary Broadway composer and songwriter Frank Wildhorn and our sold-out Annual Wish Ball at Abigail Kirsch at Tappan Hill.” He added: “I urge supporters of Golf for Wishes to act now so they will not miss out on the opportunity of scoring a hole-in-one for these kids and having a wonderful time doing so.”
Golf for Wishes gets underway at 11 AM with registration and brunch, followed by the shotgun blast at 12:30 PM that will officially start an afternoon of play for hundreds of supporters. At 5:30 PM, players will join for cocktails and dinner as well as for an awards ceremony.
The minimum fee/donation for a single golfer is $425 which includes single golf reservation, all meals and beverages throughout the day, specialty gifts, and eligibility for golf awards.
The fee for a foursome is $1,600.
For those who attend only the evening portion, the cost is $150 per individual and includes the reservation, cocktails and dinner.
Other sponsorship opportunities for this event are also available
Conklin praised the generosity of the thousands of supporters—individuals, organizations and companies—that made it possible for the chapter to grant the wishes of more than 2,400 children during the past 30 years. “I am confident that this spirit of collectively scoring a hole-in-one on behalf of our non-profit at Golf for Wishes will make it possible for us to grant the one true heartfelt wish of every eligible child in the Hudson Valley.”
The fourth and last 30th anniversary signature event will be the 11th Annual Walk/Run for Wishes which will be held on Sunday, October 30th when hundreds of supporters, including Wish kids and their families converge at FDR State Park in Yorktown Heights.
