Invitation to Berkshire Golf Classic

imageGolf Classic Event Sponsor Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. invites you to participate in 18th Annual Berkshire Golf Classic 

Berkshire students will welcome players to Berkshire’s 18th Golf Classic on Monday, July 20th, as this annual eventimage returns to the Colonie Golf & Country Club in Voorheesville to raise crucial funding for Berkshire’s Workforce Development Program. Students look forward to thanking event sponsors personally, and to playing some golf as well. As students share their personal experiences at Berkshire, guests deepen their appreciation of the program.

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. is again serving as the Classic's Title Sponsor and has been a major Berkshire supporter for many years. imageJustin Riccio says, “Arthur J. Gallagher knows how important it is to be socially responsible and considers Berkshire a stellar example of effective community service,” he explained. “The Gallagher culture empowers employees to support our favorite charities and organizations, and Berkshire is a very worthy cause. We are pleased and proud to continue supporting Berkshire and its Workforce Development Program." Riccio is serving as a Golf Committee Co-Chairperson.

James Girvin, of the law firm of Girvin & Ferlazzo, PC, a long-time friend and major supporter of Berkshire, is also imageserving as a Co-Chair. “Through our long-standing professional relation­ship with Berkshire Farm Center, we have been fortunate to see firsthand the dedication and commitment of the staff as they work with the Center’s youth and families,” said Jay. “Berkshire is improving their lives today and into the future. We are proud to support the great work of Berkshire Farm Center.” He added, “The Golf Classic is also a lot of fun and I heartily recommend participating.”

Conor Boyd, of Thoroughbred Advisors, is our third Co-Chair. “The strength, vision and mission of Berkshire FarmimageCenter is a cause worth supporting. We’ve witnessed the positive impact and magic of giving young people opportuni­ties that combine evidence-based instruction and paid work experience. We hope more great businesses will rally behind the Workforce Development Program, helping to further the progress already made. NY State’s youth deserve our support."

We all look forward to another great day of golfing at the Colonie Golf & Country Club in Voorheesville, NY.

The Sponsorship Committee is now in formation, and we urge all who are interested to contact Melissa Daley immediately at 518-781-1803 or send Melissa an email, so that we can include your or your company’s name in our formal invitation.

Join us on a beautiful and challenging course, and then unwind at our end-of-day reception.

Golfers and their sponsoring companies play a huge role in the success of the Workforce Development Program and of the students preparing for college and careers. We look forward to thanking our 2015 sponsors.
