On Monday, May 20, New Ground held its 18th Annual Golf Outing and Dinner at Garden City’s Cherry Valley Club. New Ground proudly honored Thomas M. Buonaiuto, who serves as president, chief operating officer and director of Empire National Bank. Buonaiuto is a firm believer in giving back to the Long Island community. All those in attendance enjoyed a beautiful spring day, brunch, golf, competition on the course, cocktail hour, Chinese auction and dinner. Participation helped to raise much-needed funds. Proceeds from this event will benefit homeless families and veterans in New Ground’s long-term housing program.
