LPGA Event Brings The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary Funds and Friends

New York, NY (June 2005) -- As it has for the past four years, the LPGA Sybase Classic presented by Lincoln Mercury at the Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle, NY, introduces The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary to new friends in neighboring Westchester communities and helps bring it national exposure through televised coverage on ESPN and numerous references in newspaper sports sections.

Known for its generosity, the tournament donates a portion of its proceeds to local charities. The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, as the Official Hospital, is one such recipient. We are also pleased to assist in staffing the medical/EMT tent and providing interested employees who volunteer to participate on and off the course.
