Ignoring an autumn-like chill on this otherwise sunny May 13th day, 233 golfers teed off at the 27th Annual Cardinal’s Open to raise nearly $700,000 for Catholic Charities programs that provide help to New Yorkers in need.

A signature event of the Cardinal’s Committee, for Charity the Cardinal’s Open is held each year at the historic Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York.

Following a shotgun start, golfers began their rounds on the East and West Courses, competing in longest drive, closest-to-the pin and hole-in-one competitions.

A cocktail reception and dinner overlooking the course topped off the evening.  Former New York Jet Joe Klecko joined former New York Met Rusty Staub to auction a variety items that raise funds for persons in need.  Some of the hottest items included threesomes at elite New York golf courses, dinner for four at Rao’s, and golf packages to Pebble Beach and Kiawah Island.

But perhaps the most meaningful were individually auctioned bottles of Silver Oak, Beaulieu Vineyard, and fine Italian wines.    Emphasizing  the purpose behind the golf event, Mr. Staub announced that $250 can feed a family of five for a month.  Golfers responded by buying 93 bottles of wine, priced at $250 per bottle, to fight the battle against hunger in New York.
