On Monday, October 20th, 2014 Latham Centers held its 5th Annual Charity Golf Classic on a beautiful and brisk autumn day at Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club. Thank you to all of our community-minded sponsors, golfers, donors, volunteers, and staff who supported Latham Centers and contributed to another successful annual fundraising event. The day Golf Classic attracted a sold out roster of 132 golfers; additional guests arrived for the evening dinner banquet to bid on some 45 diverse live and silent auction items.

This year there were a few highlights in the event that were “close to home!” Latham Centers’ Children’s Program Nurse, Carroll Sivco donated one of her beautiful oil paintings entitled “Red River” (seen above) selling at the live auction. Several staff, family members, and Latham vendors played and/or volunteered and donated to the Classic along with two adult residents playing on the Nicklaus© Design 18-hole, private course! Latham School students created charming seasonal centerpieces for the dinner banquet with the help of teacher Suzanna Requa-Trautz (below).
Partial proceeds from this year’s Golf Classic support the Latham Community Center Capital Campaign, and help to more fully enrich the life-changing and -enhancing programs offered at Latham Centers.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL in making the event such a success!
