Highlights from the 2019 Long Island Golf Classic at Cherry Valley Club
On Monday, September 9, 219, we spent a beautiful day on the course at our inaugural Long Island Golf Classic at Cherry Valley! We are proud to announce that this event raised over $43,000 for the kids of Nassau and Suffolk Counties to participate in JA programs that empower them for the future and prepare them to navigate life in the real world.
We were thrilled to welcome two 2019-2020 Student Ambassadors who spoke to guests about their experiences with JA: Jasmin Lucero, Amityville High School, and Lia Sookdeo, Balwdin High School.
Thank you to our event sponsors: TD Bank, EY, PwC, AIG, Bob Catell, Farrell Fritz, KPMG, Sterling National Bank, and UHY Advisors.
