Another Classic Success Benefits The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary

New York, NY (June 2004) -- For the third year in a row, The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary served as Official Charity of The Sybase Classic Presented by Lincoln Mercury. The Sybase Classic featured 80 of the top 100 athletes in women’s golf competing for one of the most important titles on the LPGA tour at Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle.

The Sybase Classic’s $1.25 million purse represented a $300,000 increase in prize money. For the first time, all four rounds of The Sybase Classic were televised by ESPN and ESPN2. National coverage included airing of public service spots for The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary each day.

At this year’s Classic, pro-am and spectator ticket sales purchased through The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary prior to the tournament benefited The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. The premier Pro-Am spots entitled each player to a complimentary gift bag, a round of golf with an LPGA professional or celebrity, guest passes and awards dinner. 

In addition to pro-am spots, donors or corporations could also purchase partnership packages featuring hospitality luncheons, Pro-Am spots and publicity. This year, Bear Stearns was the Standard Bearer sponsor for the tournament. The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary is grateful to Jerome Goldstein of NYEE’s Board of Directors for arranging this sponsorship, and also John Murphy of Kaback Enterprises for a Diamond Sponsorship.

A 50-50 raffle was also conducted during the event. Gary West of England won $2,000 plus a personal portrait and a stay at The Pierre Hotel.
