Good Samaritan Hospital Plays Host to 19th Annual Golf Classic
The event, which has been sponsored by Astoria Federal Savings Bank for the past 19 years, raised $265,000 for the hospital’s neurosciences and honored Kevin J. Mullins, MD, FAANS, FACS, Chief of Neurosurgery and Director of Neurosurgical Services. Dr. Mullins is a board certified neurosurgeon and founder of Long Island Neurosurgical & Pain Specialists.
Henry Schreiber, Vice Chair of the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation Board and an inaugural member of the golf committee, said, “I think it’s one of the best outings that we’ve had. It appeared that Dr. Mullins was a very substantial draw and we are very grateful to him. It was a great opportunity for those attending to enjoy an excellent course and we have had some very good comments from the golfers. Adding tennis was also very rewarding and everyone seemed to have a great day. It was the best fundraiser that we have had.”
Mr. Schreiber said, “We are grateful to all of our corporate sponsors and individuals who worked together to make the Golf Classic such a tremendous success,” including Astoria Federal Savings Bank, Dr. Kevin and Mrs. Stacey Mullins, and Long Island Neurosurgical and Pain Specialists.
The event kicked off with breakfast prior to the Noon shotgun start for golfers. The tennis tournament began with registration and lunch at 1 pm and a 2 pm start for play. There were raffles and prizes and a lavish cocktail reception, dinner and awards ceremony concluded the fundraiser.
The success of the event prompted an announcement that plans are to return to the Glen Oaks Club for the 20th Annual Golf Classic and Tennis Tournament, which will host the Barclay’s Tournament in 2017.
