GC resident honored at Golf and Tennis Classic
North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center’s 21st annual Jonathan Krevat Memorial Golf & Tennis Cl
assic was the place to be on Monday, June 19, at The Creek in Locust Valley.
This year’s honoree, Garden City resident Dan Donnelly, Chief Executive Officer, Donnelly Mechanical Corporation, and longtime supporter of the Guidance Center, shares the exciting news: “It was an incredible day at The Creek, with great competition and camaraderie. I’m thrilled to announce that we exceeded our goal and raised over $200,000 to help the Guidance Center do its important work.”
Also, with the help of our outstanding auctioneer Jerry Loughran, we were able to raise an additional $15,000 for our Children’s Center at Nassau County Family Court.
Donnelly, a Garden City resident, had created a new format to this year’s event, with four teams competing for the Krevat Cup: one from Garden City, with Donnelly as the team captain; one from Manhasset, with Mike Mondiello as captain; NYC captain Troy Slade; and East Coast team captain Michael Schnepper.
Our tennis players enjoyed the great courts at The Creek in Locust Valley“I’m proud to say that Team Manhasset won the Krevat Cup,” says Mondiello, “but what’s most important is that our 200-plus guests put their all into raising such a large amount for the Guidance Center. In addition, everyone had a great time playing golf and tennis and socializing during an incredible steak and lobster dinner! And we were so fortunate that Mother Nature held off her wrath until everyone was indoors for the cocktail hour.”
Event sponsors included: Diamond Sponsor Americana Manhasset; Silver Medal Sponsor Donnelly Mechanical Corp.; Bronze Medal Sponsor Jeff Krevat; Caddy Sponsor Bahnik Foundation; and Tees & Greens Sponsors Susan & Peter Braverman, Compound Contracting Corp., Hucke and Associates and Mechanical Technologies.
