The Skyline Charitable Foundation's 12th Annual Golf Classic


Skyline Restoration is grateful to the many organizations and individuals who were able to support its 12th Annual Charitable Golf Classic on October 1st of this year, the year of the pandemic, that has been and continues to be devastating for so many individuals in our communities and the world over.


One hundred and twenty golfers answered Skyline’s call to join its annual charitable golf classic and came to support a good cause. During the day-long event $116,000 was raised.

On a bright fall morning, with all the Covid-19 safety protocols in place, one hundred and twenty golfers took to the courses and enjoyed a day of golfing at the beautiful grounds of the Old Westbury Golf and Country Club.


During this year’s tournament the Skyline Charitable Foundation introduced the RAP4Bronx (Relief Access Program for the Bronx), which was launched at the very beginning of the pandemic to provide meals, food and essential supplies to frontline workers, families, seniors and vulnerable residents in the Bronx, the poorest borough in the city of New York, with its 15th District (NY-15) being the poorest in the nation.

Shana McCormick, RAP4Bronx coordinator, presented the Relief Access Program for The Bronx, which works alongside community based and non-profit organizations to fulfill a part of the community’s needs. For more information please visit RAP4Bronx.org


Since its first delivery of 100 boxed meals on April 1st, the RAP4Bronx has become a substantial operator in the New York City food relief space, having delivered over 800,000 meals to food pantries and senior centers, working alongside community based and non-profit organizations to fulfill the community’s needs.

The Skyline Charitable Foundation continues to expand its support to other non-for-profit organizations including but not limited to the Chordoma Foundation; Coeur Pour Tous; Happy Watoto; Harlem Grown; Mount Sinai; Ronald McDonald House; The New York Center For Children; VFW Post 1819.

The day-long event ended with cocktails and dinner along with the presentation of the awards to the winners and the raffles.
