On the new date of Tuesday, September 22, a full field of golfers will tee off at Wykagyl Country Club. In the spirit of camaraderie and good sportsmanship, ArtsWestchester will honor the memory of Ralph Martinelli, a friend of the arts and dedicated golfer. Martinelli was not only a good golfer, he was also a champion in business and in giving back to the community. He supported many nonprofits, including ArtsWestchester, and was a friend to all. His generosity of spirit continues through his brother, Richard Martinelli, who now serves on the ArtsWestchester Board and its golf committee.
The newly renamed Ralph Martinelli Memorial Golf Outing will also honor two leaders, Andrew Benerofe of Benerofe Properties, and Andrew Greenspan of GHP Realty, whose participation and active support every year have elevated this event to being a major fundraiser for ArtsWestchester. Golfers can join the team of players who love the challenge of competing on a championship course along with the fun of supporting the arts at the same time. Foursomes are limited, so early reservations are recommended at artsw.org/golf.
