$350,000 Raised for VOA-GNY At The Honickman Companies Invitational Golf Event

More than 70 golfers came out on Monday, September 13 to support Volunteers of America-Greater New York (VOA-GNY) at The Honickman Companies Invitational golf event at Knollwood Country Club in Westchester. Reginald Goins, a VOA-GNY Board Member and President & COO of The Honickman Companies (which includes Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of NY), organized the second annual event.

Over the course of the day, friends and partners of The Honickman Companies and VOA-GNY, including former NY Knicks players Charles Smith and John Starks and former NY Yankees player Mariano Duncan, enjoyed a game of golf. Some of VOA-GNY’s long-time corporate partners also participated, including guests from Cushman & Wakefield, Walgreens/Duane Reade, Deloitte and Magnusson Architecture and Planning.

The event concluded with dinner, during which Myung Lee, President & CEO of VOA-GNY, spoke of the resilience, generosity, kindness and community she witnessed after 9/11 and again during the pandemic—all of which is a part of the New York spirit. Reginald Goins will be honored with the Spirit of New York Award at our annual gala, NY@Heart, this December 6 at The Plaza.

A total of $350,000 was raised as a result of the event—a significant contribution towards the $1 million goal we've set for this year's gala.
