event will benefit physical rehabilitation hospital
The North Rockland Lions Club, in conjunction with the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation, is sponsoring the Robert E. Byrne Golf Outing on Wednesday, June 14, 2006 at the Phillip J. Rotella Golf Course in Thiells, New York. The outing will benefit adapted sports programs at Helen Hayes Hospital, one of the country’s leading specialty physical rehabilitation hospitals, as well as local charities designated by the Lions Club.
For a contribution of $175, golfers are treated to greens fees, use of a cart, brunch, as well as a cocktail reception, dinner, prizes and awards, silent auction, and the chance to win a Cadillac in a “Hole in One,” compliments of Poughkeepsie Chevrolet & Cadillac. Golfers of all abilities are welcome to participate. Prior to the outing’s tee-off time of 11:00 a.m., Jason Birnbaum of Mitchell Spearman Golf will treat golfers to a chipping and putting clinic.
Guests not wishing to golf are welcome to attend the cocktail reception and dinner, which takes place at Kruckers Picnic Grove in Pomona, at a cost of $60. During the dinner, The North Rockland Lions Club, along with members of the Byrne family, will present recognition awards to a volunteer from Helen Hayes Hospital and a volunteer member of the Lions Club.
Helen Hayes Hospital is dedicated to enabling individuals of all abilities to lead active, healthy lifestyles and encourages this through their support of adapted sports and recreation programs. Such endeavors are incorporated into the rehabilitation program, and continue once patients are discharged back to the community. Exposure to new leisure activities, as well as re-introduction to activities favored prior to being injured, speeds the recovery process and demonstrates that living a full and enjoyable life is within reach. Adapted sports and recreation programs include gardening, kayaking, hand cycling, snow skiing, golf and sailing.
