The Members on the Board of Directors and Staff at Greene County Council on the Arts wish to thank the following sponsors, artists and business for their support to our recent fundraiser Play GOLF & Swing for the Arts held at the Catskill Golf Club on August 24, 2018. Over $5,000 was raised and proceeds benefit GCCA’s work with support to our existing services and programs as well as aid in the expansion of our outreach fostering the arts in communities throughout Greene, Columbia and Schoharie counties.
GCCA is grateful for the underwriting and sponsorship support from Event Benefactor Columbia Greene Federal Credit Union, Lunch Sponsors Columbia Memorial Health and Lee E. McGunnigle, Tee Sponsors Jeff & Laura Burnham, Kathoderay Media, R.C. Lacy Inc., Millspaugh Camerato Funeral Home, Sawyer Chevrolet, Shook Porto Insurance Agency, The Wine Cellar, Villa Vosilla, Windham Chamber of Commerce and Windham Fine Arts. GCCA encouraged our community to support these businesses.
GCCA Artist Members Kim Bach, Marty Bannan, Susan Beecher, Virginia Cantarella, Bill Deane, Patti Ferrara, Stuart Friedman, Ruth Leonard, Barbara McGeachen, Susan Miiller, Nancy Orr, Caitlin Parker, Molly Stinchfield, Carol Swierzowski, Richard Talcott, Rosalind Tobias, Sheila Trautman and Audrey Wyman donated original artwork to the event. The Catskill Golf Clubhouse became an art gallery for the day in preparation for the after-golf art reception which featured the artist’s work. The Silent Auction also featured a five-day golf trip to Williamsburg, VA and two separate vouchers for 100 pounds of prime cut meats.
Windham Golf Resort, Catskill Golf Club and Christman’s Windham House provided prizes for the best players. GCCA sends a special thank you to the Catskill Golf Club and staff members for their accommodating service and welcoming manner. Thank you to the all who played golf for the benefit of GCCA. We appreciate your participation and interest in GCCA’s programs and outreach. The day was memorable in many ways and the support will aid GCCA mission support and advance the arts and cultural community by broadening enriching creative resources and economic growth in the region.
