New York Urban League Hosts 9th Annual Golf Classic at Manhattan Woods Golf Club

The winning foursome: Bernard Davidson, Michael Johnson, Ivor Cumming, Rudolph Woode

NEW YORK - Last month, business leaders and celebrities gathered at Manhattan Woods Golf Club in West Nyack, New York to participate in the New York Urban League's Annual Golf Classic.

The Golf Classic, now in its 9th year, is held in conjunction with the New York Urban League's Football Classic. The Golf Classic is one of the major fundraisers for the New York Urban League, with proceeds supporting  job training programs, financial literacy programs, Whitney M. Young, Jr. college scholarships and more.

Thanks to Golf Classic co-chairs Larry Dais and Alfred Edmonds, title sponsors Entergy and the New York Yankees, the day was a great success. Due to their support along with sponsors such as A Whole New World Academy, Moet Hennessy USA, Miller Coors, Carol Sutton Lewis and William M. Lewis, Jr., Michael D. Robinson, and R. Kenyatta Punter & Associates, the New York Urban League continues in its mission to serve more than 50,000 New Yorkers through advocacy, education outreach, scholarships, social services and technical assistance.
