A Day Out For The Fund
On Monday, July 9th, The Actors Fund’s second annual CelebriTee Golf & Tennis Outing took over the historic Knickerbocker Country Club in Tenafly, New Jersey, and raised more than $50,000 for The Fund! A large group of golfers, led by Event Golf Chair Peter Gallagher, enjoyed a picture-perfect day on the course and tried for the hole-in-one prize: a 2012 Ford Mustang offered by Steve Kalafer of Flemington Car & Truck Country. (Alas, while a number of people got close, nobody made it!) Meanwhile, Event Tennis Chair Liz Callaway fired up the group of tennis players, which included The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess‘s Norm Lewis and Anthony Nunziata.
As the afternoon wrapped up, participants gathered at the clubhouse for a cocktail reception hosted by Peter Gallagher–who shared an anecdote and a song from Guys and Dolls–and his daughter Kathryn, who treated everyone to a beautifully-sung sneak peek of two songs from Lance Horne’s new musical, The Strip.
