Full House Attends OHEL’s 14th Annual Golf Day and Inaugural Tennis Tournament

(Courtesy of OHEL) OHEL’s recent 14th Annual Rosemil Healthcare Golf & Tennis Classic Tournament took place on June 18 at Engineers Country Club, and included a first-time round-robin tennis competition.

Over 125 golfers and tennis players gathered to enjoy a festive day of sports, delicious food and an inspiring program.

The day began with a delicious breakfast spread while the golfers practiced on the putting green and driving range in preparation for the tournament and contests.

Thereafter golfers began the golfing day with the traditional OHEL pit stops for a BBQ lunch, with serving stations spread throughout the golf course.

Later in the morning, tennis enthusiasts enjoyed a spirited and competitive tennis tournament play, despite the hot sun. The run of play went down to the wire!

The winning foursome was Ira Balsam, Barry Ness, Scott Sulzberger and Luke Wilson and the tennis competition was won by Howard Hershkovich, with Dovid Schulman finishing in second place.

However, thanks to the generous sponsors, many more participants won prizes from flat-screen TVs to Broadway tickets at the raffle giveaway.

Dinner, sponsored by Omni Managed Health, was preceded by a cocktail hour, with sushi and appetizers, as everyone prepared for the night’s program and lavish dinner.

The special guest speaker, Dr. Ruchi Kushner, an OHEL foster mother, spoke movingly about the choice to become a foster family. She spoke about the importance and need for foster parents, and how foster parenting not only elevates the lives of foster children, coming from homes of abuse and/or neglect, but in addition positively enriches the biological children of foster families themselves.

OHEL gives special thanks to Stephen and Eve Milstein and Rosemil Healthcare, for being the event sponsor; FM Home Loans; Cross River Bank; and all of the other sponsors. OHEL also thanks the Golf and Tennis Classic chairpersons, Ben Englander, Izzy Kaufman, Jonathan Marks, Jeffrey Schwartz and Michelle Sulzberger, without whom this event would not be possible.

Said Ben Englander, “The OHEL Golf and Tennis Classic is a wonderful way to spend time with my son in support of OHEL’s children and families. Thanks to their many programs, people are able to overcome and cope with all of life’s challenges.”

Individuals interested in the many programs and services that OHEL provides should contact OHEL at 800-603-OHEL (6435), or visit www.ohelfamily.org.
