NEWBURGH – Meals on Wheels of Greater Newburgh raised more than $6,000 at its recent, first-ever golf tournament, “Take a Swing at Hunger.”
About 50 participants enjoyed a day at scenic Storm King Golf Club in Cornwall, which featured not only the tournament but also raffles, prizes and a barbecue luncheon at the on-site Storm King Tavern.
“We were thrilled with the turnout and the generosity of our sponsors, donors and players,” said Joe Dirago, Golf Tournament Chair and member of the Board of Directors.
President Carole McDermott added, “The funds raised by this tournament will help us provide greatly needed meals for those in our community who are homebound and unable to provide their own meals.” Meals on Wheels of Greater Newburgh is a 501(c)(3) registered charity that prepares fresh, nutritious meals for residents of the City of Newburgh and Towns of Newburgh and New Windsor who are unable to cook adequately for themselves. Volunteers deliver the hot meals on weekdays at noontime, along with optional frozen meals for evenings and weekends.
