Steven G. Santino, the New York market leader, first vice president and senior growth manager at People’s United Bank, was the guest of honor at the annual Geraldo Rivera Golf Classic, a tournament established more than 20 years ago to raise funds for Life’s WORC (www.lifesworc.org). Santino, a Huntington resident, is responsible for 57 People’s United Bank branches in New York, which includes the growing presence that this 170-year-old financial institution has enjoyed in the Long Island region. The sold-out fundraiser was held at Edgewood Country Club.

The proceeds went to assist some 1,200 people with developmental disabilities, mental retardation and autism who receive services from this Garden City-based agency launched 45 years ago by Queens Courier newspaper publisher Victoria Schneps with help from renowned television journalist Geraldo Rivera.

WABC Radio (770AM) cosponsored the event and Rivera interviewed Santino and other guests during a live radio broadcast from the golf tournament site.
