Nine West and Two Ten Footwear Foundation invite the footwear community to join them at to the 2012 New York Golf Tournament, being held May 7 at Alpine Country Club in Demarest, New Jersey.
The annual New York Golf Tournament is now in its seventh consecutive year. Organizers are anticipating more than 100 golfers from the Greater New York footwear community will attend this popular event.
“This golf tournament is one not to be missed – it’s a great opportunity to mingle with those within the footwear industry while supporting a great organization,” said David Stamberg, New York Golf Committee Chair. “We are excited that this year’s event is at Alpine Country Club. It is a terrific golf course that is actually hosting a U.S. Open qualifying round one week after our event.”
Proceeds from the event will go to support Two Ten’s programs and services. In the last three years, the number of calls to Two Ten from shoepeople seeking assistance has more than doubled. In 2011 alone, $1.24 million in financial assistance was awarded to families in need. Additionally, Two Ten awarded 450 higher education scholarships. Given this continuing need, Two Ten relies heavily on the support of those in the industry.
“The generosity of the footwear industry is enormous. I’m confident, with everyone’s help and support, we can continue to meet this fast-growing need,” Two Ten President Neal Newman said in a recent statement.
This year’s New York golf event is made possible by Title Sponsor Nine West, along with the extraordinary volunteer efforts from the New York Golf Committee. They include: New York Golf Chair David Stamberg, Debby Garrow (E.A. Hughes & Co.), David Law (Lord and Taylor), Tom Murray, Harvey Schafler (HMS Sales), Sonny Shar (Pentland), Mike Shirey (Nina Shoes), Tom Tarica (Jimlar) and Mike Willhite (Steve Madden).
