ELIH 27th Annual Golf Classic

Eastern Long Island Hospital hosted its 27th annual Golf Classic at the North Fork Country Club in Cutchogue on June 10.

More than 160 golfers attended the event, which included a breakfast for morning golfers, a barbecue lunch, prizes, various games of chance, cocktails, and a dinner buffet.

This year’s event raised nearly $124,000, which will benefit services that the ELIH Emergency Department provides for the North Fork and Shelter Island.

Stanley Lomangino and Jon DiVello of Mattituck Environmental Services were honored at the Classic for providing essential waste removal services for the North Fork as well as their philanthropic efforts in the community.
