East End benefit outings and raffles

Golfing Galore




East End clubs, groups, and charitable organizations are swinging in the spring season with golf tournaments, classics, and raffles.

Benefit For Sean Grismer

Conceive, believe, achieve. The East End is #SCSTRONG, raising money through a golf raffle to benefit Sean Grismer, a 22-year-old Hampton Bays resident who was seriously injured when he fell from a balcony on vacation from college in March 2018. Grismer, a local high school student-athlete, was rushed back to New York where he underwent spinal surgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City March 13, 2018. Grismer emerged from the accident a paraplegic, paralyzed from the waist down. A 13-hour surgery left him with a spinal fusion, two rods, 16 screws, and a metal cage inserted in his back. He also suffered extreme head trauma, including a fractured skull.

The raffle gives donors a chance for a three- or four-pack to play at some of the prestigious East End golf courses, including Shinnecock Hills, National Golf Links, Sebonack Golf Club, Friars Head Golf Club, and more.

To buy a raffle ticket, visit www.sgstrong.com/golf-raffle. There will be a public drawing on Thursday, May 30, at Oakland’s Restaurant & Marina in Hampton Bays at 7 PM. There will be a cash bar. Winners do not need to be present and will be contacted directly.

Golf Classic For ELIH

Evening slots are still available for the 27th annual golf classic honoring Jon Divello and Stanley Lomangino of Mattituck Environmental Services and benefiting Eastern Long Island Hospital June 10.

The outing, to be held at North Fork Country Club in Cutchogue, will be played as an 18-hole scramble tournament, where two or more players form a team to play, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of players keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot, subject to certain criteria.

Late-day golfers will check in at noon and tee off at 1:30 PM. There is a 6 PM cocktail hour, 7:30 PM dinner, and 8 PM awards ceremony. There is also a special foursome raffle to play at The Bridge in Bridgehampton. Tickets are $100 each and limited to the first 50 sold.

Individuals can golf for $325. There is a $125 fee for company sponsors or $200 for two. The fee is $250 for cart sponsors. Dinner reservations are $150. Other player sponsor information can be found at www.elih.org.

Child Care Center

The Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center Golf Outing at the Atlantic Golf Club in Bridgehampton will be held on September 16 to benefit the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center.

The event will honor Edwina “Winnie” Worth Hatch, who started and sustained the annual golf outing for the center, which was born out of tragedy in 1949 after a migrant camp fire killed two children of seasonal workers. The center continues to serve community children with educational and enrichment programs. For many working parents, the center, a six-acre farm and field, is a lifeline.

A driving range will begin at 10 AM with tee time set for noon. There will be brunch, dinner, and an open bar, plus a silent auction and prizes.

A foursome can register for $3200, and individuals can register for $850. There is an early bird special by Wednesday, May 15; $2950 a foursome or $800 an individual.

Sponsorships are available. Visit www.bhccrc.org for more information.
