Garden City, N.Y. (May 6, 2022) – FCA, a leading health and human services nonprofit organization on Long Island, is no stranger to making lemonade out of lemons. And that’s just what happened earlier this week when rain showers and wind were unwelcome guests at FCA’s annual golf outing at the Meadow Brook Club in Jericho. Despite the challenges the weather presented, the outing was otherwise a great success, with a stalwart cadre of more than 120 supporters who together raised close to $160,000. The monies raised will support dozens of programs that protect and benefit vulnerable Long Islanders of all ages
FCA President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey L. Reynolds expressed his thanks to all who turned out to support FCA, saying "The weather didn't break our way, but we were thrilled to have a record field of golfers who braved the wind and rain to help our less fortunate neighbors experience brighter days."
FCA is a not-for-profit agency helping more than 30,000 Long Islanders each year. For the last 137 years, the organization has worked to protect and strengthen vulnerable children, seniors, families and communities on Long Island.
FCA believes in the potential of Long Island - a place where no child, senior, family or community is left to struggle alone with barriers to health care, education, employment or economic prosperity. Long Island continues to be one of the greatest place in the world to live and raise a family for many; FCA exists to ensure that be the case for all.
