Grace Golf Tournament & Gala Dinner/Auction, Monday, September 27th
Millbrook, NY. Join Grace Episcopal Church on Monday, September 27th for the 14th Annual Grace Gala event to be held at the McCann Golf Course and Christos in Poughkeepsie. This benefit gala, perfectly timed for the welcoming of autumn, consists of two events in one day. For golfers the day offers18 holes of golf, breakfast, lunch, cocktail hour, dinner, and silent auction. For non-golfers, the dinner (including cocktail hour and auction) is offered separately and features speaker The Rt. Rev. Mary D. Glasspool, from the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Bishop Glasspool joined the Diocese in 2016 and is well known for her dynamic and inspirational speaking engagements. Heather Holohan-Guarnieri & friends will provide the lively entertainment throughout the evening.
This event is always a lot of fun and raises money for a good cause. Grace Church has been a part of the fabric of Dutchess County for more than 150 years. For all these years Grace has provided a place for people to gather, and worship God, teach their children, and build a caring community. The funds raised through this event help support the mission of Grace and give assistance throughout the wider community with outreach programs that provide scholarships for the preschool, two immigrant outreach programs reaching teens and families, a fellowship program for young adults, two food supply programs having served thousands of people this past year, and a housing program and support system for seniors.
The golf tee off time is 10am, followed by cocktail hour with hot appetizers (cash bar) at 4pm, and dinner at 5pm. Golf including breakfast, lunch, and dinner is $175. The cost for dinner including cocktail hour with hot appetizers (cash bar) and silent auction is $125. Prizes will be awarded for golfers (remember to get your Mulligans). Registration is required. The golf check in time is 9am.
