Wall Street Charity Golf Classic Celebrates 20 Years of Success

August 7, 2007

The golden links of the Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y., was the place to see and be seen on July 16 as some New York’s top leaders in business turned out to swing an iron for cystic fibrosis at the Greater New York Chapter – Westchester Office’s Wall Street Charity Golf Classic. Hosted by Tom and Ginny Hughes, this event over the years has established itself as the top CF Foundation golf tournament. 

Wall Street Charity Golf Classic
Boomer Esiason, Louis Cappelli and Tom Hughes enjoyed a day of golf at the exclusive Winged Foot Golf Club.
Spotted on the green were Paul McManus of HRG Travel Worldwide and honorary chair and NFL great Boomer Esiason. They, and the many other special guests who gathered for the event’s 20th anniversary tee-off, raised an amazing $950,000 net for cystic fibrosis research.
 
Weather? It couldn’t have been more perfect: a bright blue sky spread above the manicured course, known as one of the most majestic in the area—but no doubt these guests would have turned out in the rain for a cause that has come to mean so much to so many. Foundation Executive Vice President C. Richard Mattingly got the crowd to give themselves a big round of applause for all they do after delivering a detailed account of the progress being made in CF drug research. Esiason gave the Bid for the Cure speech—with great aplomb and great success.
 
Event Co-Chairs Tim Grell, John Griff, Alfred F. Kelly Jr. and Linda K. Russo made it all happen with the help of a sand-trap full of corporate sponsors: Kings Point Capitol Partners, LLC, British Airways, Lehman Brothers, Deutsche Bank, D.B. Poster, Assoc., Louis Cappelli Foundation, Inc., Theory, UBS, Merrill Lynch, American Express, DeSola Group, Gleacher Partners, Jill and Sandy Sirulnick, Marquis Jet and HRG Worldwide.

Special thanks also go out to John Osterweil and Dan Lawrence of Memorabilia Magic and Ellen Horowitz of HRG Worldwide, as well as the many volunteers who helped make the event a success.
