On Monday, June 4th, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) hosted their 22nd Annual Golf Tournament at The Muttontown Club in East Norwich, NY. This year’s tournament was presented by FatGuy Media and TCI Technologies, and honored Thomas Jacoberger. The event brought together 100 golfers and raised more than $100,000 in support of mentoring on Long Island.
“We are so happy Mother Nature was on our side, allowing everyone to enjoy a great day of golf on the beautiful course at Muttontown,” said Meredith McCaslin, Director of Development for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island. “We truly appreciate the generosity and support of the sponsors, golfers and our honoree, Tom Jacoberger, 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, buffet dinner, awards ceremony and raffles.
During dinner, President’s Council Member and Big Brother, Paul Moran, spoke about his experience with the agency and encouraged guests to become involved as Big Brothers and Big Sisters for the 450 children on the waiting list. “Becoming a Big Brother allowed me to uncover a whole new world and experience what this organization is truly about. It is an honor to help shepherd my Little Brother, Michael, into adulthood and to be involved with the leadership and staff at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island,” shared Paul.
