Ever dream of playing a sport with a celebrity? Make that dream a reality by attending Mill Neck Family’s fourth annual Spring Swing Invitational Golf Tournament, to be held at the North Hills Country Club in Manhasset on Monday, May 24. Well-known sportscaster and author Len Berman will join us at this year’s event, where he’ll play golf and speak at the Champions Dinner. Sign up today! Entries are limited to the first 25 men’s, ladies’ or mixed foursomes.
All golfers will receive an autographed copy of Berman’s new book The Greatest Moments in Sports. Additional copies will be available for purchase during the fun-filled evening portion of the event. For an entry fee of only $350 per person, guests will enjoy delicious brunch, golf challenges and food and refreshments on the seventh, 10th and 12th holes of the course. Cocktails, a Champions Dinner, honoree recognition, raffle prizes, a silent auction and golf contest awards will follow the tournament. Don’t play golf?
