MAHOPAC, N.Y. - For the first time, the Mahopac Sports Association (MSA) teamed up with the TD Club for its annual Football Golf Outing to raise money for the town and school football programs.
The event was held Friday, Aug. 18, at the Putnam County Golf Course.
Funds raised from the event go toward things such as senior scholarships, a helmet blowup walk-through, high-quality helmets and other equipment, a portable AED device, non-contact tackling equipment to assist player safety and more.
The Outing has been running annually for seven years and has become the largest fundraising event for the football programs.
This year, the TD Club (which supports high school level football) and MSA (youth football from fourth to eighth grade) teamed up to host the outing and it resulted in their largest event to date—the most golfers and most sponsors.
Golfers got to compete in an 18-hole competition as well as long drive, closest-to-pin and hole-in-one for car contests (hole-in-one sponsored by Park Ford in Mahopac).
Chris Marino, Mark Carey, and Greg Riolo of the TD Club and Dan Callahan, Chris Lorusso, KJ Koch, and Alice Reilly of MSA oversaw the event.
“I want to give a big thank you to the golf and catering team, especially head golf pro Jim Woods, who makes this event run smoothly every year,” said Chris Marino. “I also want to thank all our sponsors.”
