2016 Mariano Rivera/White Plains Hospital Celebrity Event and Golf Tournament
1st Annual Mariano Rivera/White Plains Hospital Celebrity Event and Golf Tournament raises nearly $400k!
What a great start to a new partnership!
The first combined golf tournament for White Plains Hospital and the Mariano Rivera Foundation took place on Sunday, June 26th and Monday, June 27th at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale and raised nearly $400k.
The event kicked off at the Ritz Carlton White Plains on Sunday night with a star-studded cocktail party emceed by Jay Harris from ESPN sports and a special guest appearance by Javier Colon from the Voice, who previewed his new album Gravity. Dinner and cocktails with a live band entertained the crowd of more than 200.
Monday morning “fivesomes” (four golfers and a celebrity guest) set out at Quaker Ridge Country Club in Scarsdale at 8am for the first flight including Mariano Rivera, Joe Torre (I do not think he played, just visited), Joe Girardi, Charles Smith and Willie Randolph, among others. The afternoon flight – which included Rudy Giuliani, Mike Richter, Ottis Anderson, Reggie Jackson, Javier Colon, Constantine Maroulis, Seema Sedakar, and Scott Burrell - teed off at 1. 155 players and guests ended the day with a lavish buffet and award ceremony in the clubhouse. It was a great day for both organizations and we are so grateful to Mariano Rivera, Delta Air Lines, Kylie and Louis Cappelli, Steiner Sports and all of ours sponsors and warm wonderful celebrities for helping to create such a memorable experience. We’re already looking forward to 2017!
