The YMCA of Metro North hosted this year’s Fore the Kids Golf Tournament to benefit the Y’s youth programs, on Monday, June 3, 2019. The Y welcomed nearly 100 golfers to the exclusive Kernwood Country Golf Club for the 35th year of this prestigious event.
This year’s tournament raised $52,000 to help support local youth, who couldn’t afford to otherwise, attend the Y’s Day Camp and Y Academy programs. The YMCA of Metro North thanks title sponsor Northshore Bank for their generous sponsorship of this event.
Kathleen Walsh, President and CEO notes, “this event combines a day on the golf course with the spirit of giving. since every dollar raised supports our scholarship program, this timing aligns well with our camp requests.”
The tournament consisted of 18 holes, scramble shotgun tee off style and concluded with lunch, raffles and words from the YMCA of Metro North Leadership. Congratulations to the team from Borislow Insurance, Mark Guanya, Jennifer Borislow, Paul Mantell, and Deb Young, who won first place in the tournament with a round of 63, 7 under par. The second place winners, Paul Gorman, Tom Fabrizzio, Victor Grasso, and John Morris, hailed from the Southshore YMCA and scored a round of 64.
Other notable winners from the day include Closest to the Pin winner Bob Batten, Men’s Longest Drive winner James Alfonso, and Women’s Longest Drive winner the Y’s own Kathleen Casey!
Golf Chairperson Paul Mantell said, “We are extremely fortunate to have such generous members, donors and supporters for our golf fundraiser. All of the net proceeds go directly to support families and children in our summer camp and summer aquatics programs.”
