Play Golf and Swing for the Arts

The GCCA Board of Directors and Staff wish to thank our generous sponsors and underwriters who made this fundraising event a success. Please show your support to these sponsors. Thank you!

Play GOLF & swing for the Arts took place on August 24, 2018 at the Catskill Golf Club located at 27 Brooks Lane, Catskill, NY. We are still tallying and will announce the results. In the meantime we are grateful for the support from our players, sponsors, artists and donors. All proceeds benefit GCCA programs! Thank you!


GCCA is grateful for the underwriting and sponsorship support from Event Benefactor Columbia Greene Federal Credit Union, Lunch Sponsors Columbia Memorial Health and Lee E. McGunnigle, Tee Sponsors Jeff & Laura Burnham, Kathoderay Media, R.C. Lacy Inc., Millspaugh Camerato Funeral Home, Sawyer Chevrolet, Shook Porto Insurance Agency, The Wine Cellar, Villa Vosilla, Windham Chamber of Commerce and Windham Fine Arts. GCCA encouraged our community to support these businesses.

GCCA Artist Members Kim Bach, Marty Bannan, Susan Beecher, Virginia Cantarella, Bill Deane, Patti Ferrara, Stuart Friedman, Ruth Leonard, Barbara McGeachen, Susan Miiller, Nancy Orr, Caitlin Parker, Molly Stinchfield, Carol Swierzowski, Richard Talcott, Rosalind Tobias, Sheila Trautman and Audrey Wyman donated original artwork to the event. The Catskill Golf Clubhouse became an art gallery for the day in preparation for the after-golf art reception which featured the artist’s work. The Silent Auction also featured a five-day golf trip to Williamsburg, VA and two separate vouchers for 100 pounds of prime cut meats.

Windham Golf Resort, Catskill Golf Club and Christman’s Windham House provided prizes for the best players. GCCA sends a special thank you to the Catskill Golf Club and staff members for their accommodating service and welcoming manner. Thank you to the all who played golf for the benefit of GCCA.
