Amidst the challenges of this very unusual summer, Ohel Children’s Home and Family Services found a way to host its annual Rosemil Healthcare Golf and Tennis tournament, delivering a safe and fun day for the players. More than 140 players gathered at Alpine Country Club in Demarest, NJ to support the essential mental health services that Ohel continues to deliver during the Covid pandemic.
Co-chair Yaakov Zachter, of Bergenfield, NJ said “This is my first year as co-chair of the tournament and I’m excited that my work has contributed to its success.”
When the region shut down in March, Ohel pivoted overnight to offer mental health services virtually, including individual therapy sessions, support groups for people suffering Covid-related tragedies, and free webinars to help people navigate the many issues that presented as a result of the crisis.
The need for Ohel’s services increased exponentially during this crisis, and continues to increase. The event raised more money than was raised to help Ohel continue to meet this need. This could not have been accomplished without the leadership of the event co-chairs: David Brecher; Yossie Eisenberger; Mendy & Kiki Haas; Mendy Schreiber; Yaakov Zachter; Ben Englander; Izzy Kaufman; Jonathan Marks; Michelle Sulzberger.
“It was great to have a slice of normalcy in the middle of this crisis,” said Ben Englander, senior co-chair and founder of the event. “Supporting Ohel has been important to me for many years and I’m so happy that we were able to continue the tradition this summer.”
Ohel is grateful to Rosemil Healthcare for sponsoring the tournament for the () year and to Cross River for sponsoring tennis. Here are tournament results:
First Place Foursome: David Cohen, David Scharf, Eli Spiro, Matt Drillman
