Berkshire Golf Classic Gives Youths a Leg Up as they Prepare for the Future

Youths Get a Leg Up as They Prepare for the Future

Berkshire held its 15th Annual Golf Classic, with 128 golfers from around the region, on July 16th at the Albany Country Club. Most were business executives and employees from our many sponsors, who play a huge role in the success of our annual fundraising golf event.

imageProceeds benefit the Workforce Development Program, and we're certainly grateful for their continuing support. After golf, the players enjoyed some fine food and a chance to mingle. New York State Senator Roy McDonald (photo at right) thanked the participants for their "care and commitment to children and families in need".
