Jericho, NY: The Maurer Foundation’s 21st Annual Golf Classic, which took place Thursday, May 5th, 2016 was a huge success, raising almost $180,000!
Chilly temperatures and cloudy skies did little to dampen the fun for the golfers, who participated in a round of 18 holes at the prestigious Meadow Brook Club. The golf outing was generously sponsored by Douglas and Violetta Partrick. Susan Samaroo, Executive Director of The Maurer Foundation remarked, “We are so grateful for the Partrick’s invaluable support of our Golf Classic. Their altruism is just truly inspiring.” The day of golf was followed by a cocktail reception, sponsored by Farrell Fritz, P.C., which included an awards ceremony, silent auction, and raffles.
Golfers had the opportunity to tee off against former New York Jet Super Bowl Champ, John Schmitt, in the Golf Classic’s Beat the Pro contest held on the ninth hole. Attendees also had the opportunity to meet and golf with Long Island native and former NFL player, Jay Fiedler, as well as former New York Jet Chad Cascadden.
