“Overall, it was a perfect day of golf and philanthropy,” remarks Goodman. This year’s event chair and Managing Director at Savills Studley, Chris Tarzon adds, “The weather was ideal and we couldn’t be prouder to present such a substantial donation to such a worthy cause. The funds raised will provide critical support to both residential and collegian scholars who are part of the Boys Hope Girls Hope Scholarship program.” Tarzon, who is on the organization’s board, presented the check to Peter Beale-Delecchio, executive director of charity.
