MADONNA HEIGHTS 37th ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC RAISES FUNDS FOR WOMEN AND FAMILIES
DIX HILLS, NY, July 6, 2017 – Friends of SCO Family of Services’ Madonna Heights programs teed up June 19th for the 37th Annual Madonna Heights Golf Classic in Syosset, Long Island. The event, held at the Woodside Club, raised funds to support the vital work of Madonna Heights to teach, strengthen and empower young and adult women to heal from trauma.
Jessica Sweeney of Northport received the Madonna Heights Spirit Award for her outstanding commitment to the women and children served by SCO Madonna Heights. Jessica has been very active in the Northport community, at her children’s schools, and has been involved with Madonna Heights since she was a young girl. Jessica has served as the Madonna Heights Ladies Auxiliary Publicity Officer, Vice President, and has held several terms as President. The Spirit Award honors “Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things” and celebrates women who have made a profound impact in the lives of their families and community.
“We are honored to recognize Jessica Sweeney for her compassion and commitment to Madonna Heights and fortunate to have so many friends who have supported these life-changing programs through this event for 37 years,” said SCO Executive Director Douglas O’Dell.
