Golfers were split into foursomes and sent onto the course after a review of the rules. Guests were encouraged to participate in various activities along the course, including a hole-in-one challenge to win a 2-year lease on a new Mercedes. This year’s fall-themed “Beat the Beet” putting challenge, sponsored by Applied Concepts, Inc., starred HeartBeet Farms of Centereach, New York. Heartbeet Farms is a local one-acre, farm focused on delivering healthy, organic foods and food education to families on Long Island.
Following a day of golf, the teams made their way to a delightful cocktail hour sponsored by Digital View and Hinck Electrical Contractor, Inc., featuring an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and a visit from HeartBeet Farm’s mobile farm stand.
Dinner included over 130 guests and just as many raffle prizes. The night kicked off with the announcement of the golf awards, followed by a thank you speech by Adrienne Giannone, president and CEO of Edge Electronics, a touching tribute to a recent breast cancer survivor and event volunteer, and an introduction to the HBCAC.
“This was our fourteenth year hosting the golf outing and every year we continue to accomplish our fundraising goals,” says Adrienne Giannone. “We are thankful for the support from our sponsors, suppliers, and representatives that contribute to our annual cause, and especially to Debbie O’Rourke and the Eventide Group for always going above and beyond to make our event a huge success.”
Edge Electronics is proud to have worked with and supported the HBCAC's mission of bringing breast cancer education and awareness to the community.
