Held on July 8 at the Timber Point Country Club in Great River, the 17th Annual Golf Classic was called a tremendous success, with all proceeds being donated to this special program that provides counseling, peer interaction, support groups and education to children following the death of a loved one. The Children's Bereavement Program is one of the many services provided by Hospice Care Network, which is a not-for-profit organization.
The J. Kings Annual Golf Classic not only included a full day of golf on one of Long Island's most beautiful courses, but a breakfast, barbecue lunch and dinner with entertainment. In addition, the event featured an Island-themed cocktail party. All food and beverages were catered by Lessing's, with J. Kings chefs assisting in menu development.
"Once again, our annual Golf Classic has proven to be not only a day of great golf and terrific food, but an important way for us to contribute to an organization that does so much good for so many people," said John King, president of distributorship. "Through their Children's Bereavement Program, The Hospice Network has already helped hundreds of children with their unique needs following the death of a loved one, and we're happy to be able to support this dynamic program."
