The eighth annual Chrissy's Wish Memorial Golf Outing will take place on Friday, August 22 at Rock Hill Golf Club in Manorville. Every year the outing raises money for the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and its quest for advances and breakthroughs in the research and treatment of mental illnesses. In its seven years, the Chrissy's Wish Outing has raised more than $410,000.
Tee time is 1:30 p.m. Barbecue lunch, range practice and an opening ceremony begin at 11:30. After the round, players are invited to stay for a buffet dinner, dessert and two-hour open bar. Entry fee for all players is $160 and includes cart, range balls and all meals. To register for the outing as a player or sponsor, or to donate, visit the Chrissy's Wish Memorial Fund website. Interested participants can also register as dinner-only guests for $55.
At 7,050 yards, Rock Hill is one of Long Island's lengthiest public courses. Thick rough and uphill approaches make distance off the tee vitally important.
