Local Teens to Participate in Golf Marathon to Benefit Blythedale Children's Hospital
Dedicated Group of Young Philanthropists Plan to Complete 100 Holes of Golf at Fenway Golf Club
The effort is led by Joshua Goldenberg, of Scarsdale. Two years ago, Joshua founded "Birdies for Happiness," a fundraiser coordinated by the Scarsdale High School golf team that raised more than $40,000 for Blythedale. Joshua currently plays golf for University of Pennsylvania.
"We are so grateful to Joshua for all his tireless efforts on behalf of our young patients," said Blythedale President & CEO Larry Levine. "He provides an extraordinary example of the power of philanthropy for his peers. We are very proud and thankful to be the recipient of his generosity."
Joshua will be joined by college students Ethan Bunzel, James Nicholas, Anthony Scarcella, Jonny Emmerman and Christian Cavilere.
The event will be held at Fenway Golf Club, in Scarsdale, N.Y.
