Dear Knights & Ladies,
We are exploring the possibility of a new fundraising event in 2019 to benefit the Order. 
On Tuesday, May 28th 2019, we will be holding the first (and hopefully) annual Golf Outing to specifically benefit the Children of the Holy Land. The event will take place at Eagle Oaks Golf and Country club in Farmingdale New Jersey – a Championship Jack Nicklaus Design course in Monmouth County. 
We are in the early planning stages at this point, and we are trying to gauge interest in the event before formally committing to it. The outing will also include brunch prior to the round and an awards banquet afterward. Guests will be able to join the event only for dinner, as well. This is an excellent opportunity for our members to come out and play with friends and family as well as support a cause near and dear to our hearts. Different levels of corporate sponsorship will also be available.
If you think you might have an interest in playing or supporting this event, we would like to hear from you – please call our office at 212 371-1050 or email us at with the words GOLF OUTING in the subject line. 
Additionally, we are looking for members to join our planning committee for the event.  If you would be willing to serve on the planning committee, please let the office know.
Wishing you blessings in the New Year.
