EAST NORWICH, N.Y. - March 31, 2015 - PRLog -- On Monday May 18, the COPE Foundation will be hosting its 9th Annual Golf Outing held at the Muttontown Club, registration starts at 10:00am.

This year  the COPE Foundation event will be honoring Rich “Big Daddy” Salgado, CEO and Founder of Coastal Advisors, LLC which specializes in insurance needs for professional athletes and entertainers. Rich also supports numerous charities both within his hometown area in New York City and nationwide supporting his clients’ philanthropic efforts. Kristen DelVecchio Glosserman, who lost her younger brother when she was 13 years old, will receive the COPE Sibling Recognition Award for her generosity to the community in her support of various organizations—serving on boards, planning fundraising events and sharing her expertise as a certified life coach, in addition to co-owning several restaurants with her husband, Marc.

Among COPE’s supporters and previous event participants are New York Knicks producer Spencer Julien, whose family started COPE Foundation, and many former players and announcers from Madison Square Garden, including former New York Knicks superstar and Hall-of-Famer Walt “Clyde” Frazier; Al Trautwig, host of MSG’s  NY Knicks and NY Rangers telecasts; Dave Maloney, Former NY Ranger and MSG Analyst; Jill Martin, Today Show correspondent and Knicks reporter; and Butch Goring, four-time Stanley Cup Champion with the NY Islanders and current analyst for MSG Networks.

“I am proud that COPE has grown over the past 16 years from a small group of parents meeting for support in each other’s homes to an organization that helps so many people, about 20% more families every year,” remarks Lillian Julien, COPE’s President and Co-founder. “We are proud to honor not only an incredibly generous philanthropist such as Rich Salgado who does so much for the local community, but also a sibling who, thanks to support from COPE, was able to convert her grief into a deeper appreciation of life.”

COPE (Connecting Our Paths Eternally), a grief support organization for parents and families living with the loss of a child. This event brings together individuals, families and organizations to pay tribute to loved ones and honor supporters. The Golf Outing raises 75% of the organization’s annual budget. Funds raised from the event will enable COPE to develop and expand its programming and outreach and fund COPE’s support groups, workshops and events, since the organization does not ask families to pay for most of COPE’s services. Additionally, proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Camp Erin® NYC (August 28-30, 2015).
