Viscardi Hosts 10th Annual Golf Outing

Funds Raised to Support Youth and Employment Programs

June 30, 2022

The Viscardi Center is holding its 10th annual Golf Outing on September 19, 2022 at the prestigious Mill River Club in Oyster Bay, where dozens of golfers will spend a fall day on the greens to raise vital funds for the Center’s youth transition and employment programs for adolescents and adults – including veterans – with disabilities. The event, once again presented by J.N. Savasta Corp./Broadreach Medical Resources, Inc., has raised over $1 million to date to maintain and enhance job training, placement, and school-to-work transition services accessed by hundreds of Long Islanders and New York metro area residents.

“It’s been my honor to sponsor this golf outing the past several years which raises critical funding for programs that are more essential than ever,” said Joseph N. Savasta, President, J.N. Savasta Corp./Broadreach Medical Resources, Inc. “These programs have a direct impact by assisting adults with disabilities to secure meaningful jobs, providing educational experiences that keep at-risk youth in school so they earn their diplomas, and building skills so students with intellectual disabilities successfully transition to work and their communities.”

Each year, the dinner program includes remarks by an individual who has benefited from the funds raised. Last fall, Elizabeth Santos, a Genius Admin at Apple, spoke about the profound impact the Center’s employment services had on her journey to re-enter the workforce as a veteran.

“I was grateful to learn basic things that I probably wouldn’t have learned — the importance of networking, the importance of resume writing, and the importance of properly communicating my skills from the military and how they translate over to the civilian world,” said Santos.

The full-day event includes a breakfast, round of golf, cocktail reception, raffle, on-course enhancements and dinner. Purchase a ticket, foursome, dinner only ticket or sponsorship online today!
