Calvary Hospital Hosts Annual Golf & Tennis Classic

Event Raises More Than $300,000 for Patient Programs and Services



NEW YORK, NY, August 2017 - On July 31, more than 325 people attended Calvary Hospital's 29th Annual Golf & Tennis Classic at Brae Burn Country Club and Century Country Club in Westchester County.  The event raised over $300,000 for Calvary programs and services for patients and their families.


 

Each year, proceeds from this event’s tennis portion support the Dennis Berberich Scholarship Fund for a Calvary Care Technician, who is part of the nursing department. This year’s honoree is Nisi Eapen, who joined Calvary as a Ward Secretary in 2010 and became a CCT in 2015. Nisi is now pursuing her RN -- and ultimately her degree as a Nurse Practitioner -- at the College of Mount Saint Vincent.

In addition to the golfing, tennis and dinner, Calvary’s event included a performance by comedian Tom Cotter and celebrity auctioneer, George Oliphant of WNBC-TV’s “George to the Rescue.” The breakout star from Season 7 on “America’s Got Talent,” Mr. Cotter was the first comedian to make it that far on the show. Tom’s many TV and radio credits include: “The Tonight Show,” “Last Comic Standing,” CBS’ “The Late Late Show,” as well as his very own show, “Comedy Central Presents…Tom Cotter.”
