16 May Guidance Center Hosts 21st Annual Jonathan Krevat Memorial Golf & Tennis Classic
Roslyn Heights, NY, May 15, 2017 —North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center will be holding its 21st annual Jonathan Krevat Memorial Golf & Tennis Classic on Monday, June 19, at The Creek in Locust Valley, and the competition is heating up!
This year’s honoree is Dan Donnelly, chief executive officer, Donnelly Mechanical Corporation, and longtime supporter of the Guidance Center. Donnelly, a Garden City resident, has created a whole new approach 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. As in the great tradition of the Davis Cup and the Ryder Cup, the “Krevat Cup” will be awarded to one of four competing teams.
“The reason I love Garden City is because it’s a kids’ town,” said Donnelly. “Nothing is more important than the wellbeing of our kids. That’s why my fellow GC-ers and I are competing (well, that and they love golf and tennis). But our team could definitely still use some help! Reach out to the Guidance Center- it’s a great cause- and tell them I sent you. Go Team Garden City!”
“This is going to be a phenomenal event,” said Mondiello. “The Creek is an amazing golf course. The location can’t be beat. The energy is high. And after golf, the outdoor beach club cocktail and dinner time will make it a truly classic and classy event! Team Manhasset is ready to bring home the Krevat Cup! ”
“The goal is to raise no less than $200,000 this year, all of which goes to support the important work of the Guidance Center,” says East Coast captain Michael Schnepper. “So for those in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and beyond, join my team! Let’s not let Garden City and Manhasset rule the roost.”
The New York City captain is equally pumped up for his team’s performance. “It’s not too late to sign up and show Long Island what NYC is all about!” says Slade.
