The 140+ golfers who came to show support for Ohel at the 10th Annual Golf Classic could not have asked for a better day. The sun was shining, and the capacity crowd arrived at the beautiful Fresh Meadow Country Club ready to play a great day of golf, enjoy delicious food, and have the chance to win incredible raffle prizes, all while benefiting the children and families of Ohel.
A special thank-you goes 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 countless golf events on Long Island and in Florida to benefit Ohel’s children.
Special recognition goes to Jenny and Michael Rosenberg from Hawke and Co. for sponsoring golf vests for every player in honor of the 10th anniversary, as well as to Marc Herskowitz of Infinity Land Services, who sponsored Ray-Ban sunglasses for every player.
Thanks to Ben Englander, Izzy Kaufman, Jonathan Marks, Jeffrey Schwartz, and Michelle Sulzberger, Ohel’s golf chairmen, who all brought friends and sponsors to the Golf Classic. They deserve a special thank-you as well for serving as committee chairmen for ten strong years and counting.
Congratulations to the winning foursome, comprising Jason Cury, Yakov Horowitz, Jimmy Hynes, and Ric Weinstein. Congratulations to the second-place foursome, comprising Scott Sulzberger, Matt Nullet, Harry Nullet, and Michael Schreiber.
During the dinner, guests were treated to a special appearance by Ohel foster parents Shoshana and Yossi Cohan, who shared with the audience their journey through Ohel’s foster-care program, which ultimately led to the adoption of their baby boy a few months ago. His b’ris actually took place the very next day. They encouraged all to help Ohel’s foster-care program and sponsor a child.
