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

On July 30th, more than 250 people attended Calvary Hospital’s 30th 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. In addition to golfing, tennis and dinner, the event included a performance by mentalist and comedian Eric Dittelman, a live auction, silent auction and raffle prizes featuring local businesses.

The event co-chairs were Dennis Berberich, Maryann Farrell, Joe Nunziata, and Darrel Upson. Major sponsors for this year’s event included: Linda and Dennis Berberich, ArchCare, The Deglomini Family, GNYHA Ventures Inc., Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., LaSorsa Auto Group, Montefiore Health System, Manhattan Beer, Pepsi, Pelham Civic Association and Simone Healthcare Development.

This year’s event is dedicated to the memory of Dennis Berberich Sr. A long-time member of the Calvary Hospital Board and the Chairman of the Calvary Fund Board, Dennis’ family created the Dennis Berberich Scholarship Fund, which allows one Calvary Care Technician (CCT) to further their career in nursing. The 2018 honoree is Erica Swinnie. She first joined Calvary in April of 2002 as a telephone operator. A year later, Erica transferred to the Nursing Department, trained as a CCT, and has worked at the Bronx campus since then.
