Who wouldn’t want to be rubbing elbows with all these great hoop stars out on the course?! The New York Knicks golf outing raised nearly $44,000 for Ross School programs and scholarships, including the Steven J. Ross Scholarship Fund, which helps ensure that children from all economic backgrounds benefit from a world-class Ross education. The super star event hosted at the exclusive Bridge Golf Course was attended by 56 golfers including celebrated members of the New York Knicks family.

Golfers were treated to a continental breakfast in the clubhouse, followed by an 18-hole round tournament. Afterwards, a cocktail reception and awards ceremony allowed guests to mingle and gave several of the golfers’ children a chance to meet their Knicks idols. In addition, trophies were distributed to the following winners of the day: Prem Parameswaran, David Walsh, Mel Yellin, Valinda Valcich (who won two awards), and Harry Hackett.
