To The Editor:
The United Way of Oswego County extends a sincere thank you to the many volunteers and sponsors whose commitment to the United Way 2011 Golf Classic again made the event an outstanding success. The dedication and enthusiasm of our community volunteers and golfers imparted a spirit of good will to the tournament that was contagious and elevated the tournament to much more than a day of golf.
This year’s golf tournament raised approximately $20,000 for the United Way. This money will be used to help fund 23 human service agencies providing assistance to the children, families and senior citizens of Oswego County.
An event of this scope requires year round preparation. The United Way acknowledges the excellence in planning and organization demonstrated by the United Way Golf Committee Chairperson, Dave Lloyd of Novelis and his dedicated committee for an outstanding job in implementing their vision for this tournament.
The United Way Golf Classic would not have been possible if not for the support we received from our major sponsors, National Grid, Novelis, Oswego County Federal Credit Union, Entergy, and CENG.
Good people coming together for the benefit of others is the hallmark of the United Way and nowhere was that more in evident than in the 2011 United Way 16th Annual Golf Classic.
Thank you to all who volunteered and participated in the event. Thank you for your continued community support of the United Way.
Melanie Trexler, Executive Director
United Way of Greater Oswego County
