Friends and supporters of The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) teed off to fight hunger and homelessness on Long Island raising more than $150,000 at the agency’s 20th annual Golf Classic, which was held at the North Shore Country Club in Glen Head. Proceeds from the event will go directly to the more than 300,000 guests The INN serves per year at soup kitchens and homeless shelters across the island.
After heavy rains forced the event to be postponed to Monday, Sept. 28, the new date brought more than 130 past supporters and new friends of The INN. The 2015 honoree for the event was Richard J. Seery, president of Seery Systems Group, Inc. of Garden City Park. Seery was recognized for his contributions to the agency over the last two decades, and was presented with a silver soup ladle, acknowledging his generosity, commitment and work as an advocate for The INN.
“Richard Seery, along with his family, has supported The INN in many ways,” said Eric Kramer, event co-chair and previous INN Golf Classic honoree. “We were thrilled to honor his philanthropic spirit and look forward to many more years of partnership with The INN.”
