On Monday, June 3rd, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) hosted their 23rd Annual Golf Tournament at The Muttontown Club in East Norwich, NY. This year’s tournament honored brothers Michael Mone, CEO, Harry Bachrach Inc. and Jamie Mone, COO, Harry Bachrach Inc. The annual event is held to raise funds in support of mentoring on Long Island.
“We are so happy Mother Nature provided us with perfect weather, allowing everyone to enjoy a great day of golf on the beautiful course at Muttontown,” said Meredith McCaslin, Director of Development, Corporate & Event Giving for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island. “We truly appreciate the generosity and support of the sponsors, golfers and our honorees, all who helped make this event a success for the agency”.
Tournament guests began their day with brunch on the outdoor patio before warming up at the driving range and putting greens. The day continued with golfers enjoying a barbecue lunch, cocktail reception, dinner, awards ceremony and raffles.
During dinner, Big Sister Audrey Mars, spoke about her experience being matched with her Little Sister Shelby for the past five years. “My Little Sister Shelby and I have constantly encouraged each other to take risks and learn from them. I have seen this skill translate into different areas of Shelby’s life and I’ve witnessed her transformation into a fearless young lady who will be attending college at SUNY Cortland this fall,” shared Audrey. She also thanked guests for their support in helping to raise funds needed for the mentoring agency to thrive.
