It rained and poured this year during the Ohel Omni Golf Classic, but that didn’t stop over 140 players from coming out and having a great day! Ohel thanks all the players for showing up and for sticking through the rain to play the rounds of golf and to enjoy the outstanding dinner buffet and win great raffle prizes. Even though there were clouds and thunderstorms, it was still a shining day for the children and families of Ohel, who were the true winners of the day.
A special thank-you goes out to Jerry Weissman of Omni Managed Health for being the Ohel Omni golf sponsor. Jerry has been a longtime friend and supporter of Ohel and has participated in golf events on Long Island and in Florida to benefit Ohel’s children. A shout-out to Marc Herskowitz of Infinity Land Services, who sponsored the major giveaway—golf shoes for every player. Thanks to Ben Englander, Mordy Schwartz, Michelle Sulzberger, Izzy Kaufman, and Jonathan Marks, Ohel’s golf committee, who all brought players and sponsors to the Golf Classic. A special thank-you as well to all of them for nine strong years and counting as committee chairpersons.
During the dinner, guests were treated to a special appearance by Ohel foster parents Meir and Ayala Krispine, who shared with the audience their journey through Ohel’s foster-care program, which ultimately led to the adoption of their baby boy last year. They encouraged all to help Ohel’s foster-care program and sponsor a child, because Ohel is all about making a difference in the lives of Ohel’s families and children. They credited the Milton and Molly Schulman Foster Care Program as having changed their lives immeasurably.
In recognition of the over par weather, the Engineers Country Club and Omni Managed Health have provided a “mulligan” to those who played with Ohel on June 10, and have offered an additional day of golf, on the house, to these Ohel supporters on July 22.
