White Plains, NY – The Westchester Chapter of the New York State Building Officials Conference (NYSBOC) held their Sixth Annual Golf Outing at Westchester Hills Golf Club in White Plains, NY, on Tuesday, October 1, 2019. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Cerebral Palsy of Westchester (CPW), a non-profit organization with programs that serve children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Prior to the 11:00 am a shotgun start, CPW’s Adaptive Boy Scout Troop #535 and Adaptive Girl Scout Troop #1902 let the golfers in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. The outing was a huge success thanks to NYSBOC-Westchester Chapter’s dedication and hard work as well as generous donations made by Sponsors and attendees.
NYSBOC-Westchester Chapter, under the leadership of Sal Pennelle, has been supporting CPW for the past seven years, both through donating holiday gifts each year to CPW’s school program and through the annual Golf Outing. Proceeds from the outings have allowed vast improvements to be made to CPW’s main campus in Rye Brook, including renovations to the gym, the construction of a new sensory room. And the design and construction of Harmony Park, a new sensory garden and adaptive playground which officially opened this past summer. Proceeds from this year’s outing will go towards the installation of a fully equipped, adaptive classroom for CPW’s BRIDGE School Program.
