VOICES 20th Anniversary Golf Outing
June 14 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm
Join VOICES to Commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terror Attacks with Anniversary Season of Programs and Events.
VOICES Golf Outing is nearly full, but sponsorships are available for all other programs and events, see below.
Voices Center for Resilience (formerly Voices of September 11th) will host its 7th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 14, 2021 at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, NY. All proceeds will benefit VOICES work to assist communities preparing for and recovering from tragedy, and to provide long-term support and resources that promote mental health care and wellness for victims’ families, survivors and responders.
Frank Fetchet, VOICES VP of Business Development, said, “This is our second year at Quaker, and we’re thrilled to be welcomed back. As many golfers know, Quaker Ridge is one of the world’s premier golf courses, and its recent redesign by architect Gil Hanse makes a golf experience at QR second to none.”
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 – a milestone that also recognizes VOICES as a thought leader in advocacy and social services. Most importantly, VOICES continues to provide a legacy of support with a wide array of services and programs including workshops and webinars on topics such as loss during COVID-19, mental health considerations, and 9/11-related issues.
This September 11 VOICES commemorates the 20th Anniversary and honors the 2,977 lives lost, and the over 4,100 that have died since of 9/11 related illnesses. VOICES 20th Anniversary Commemoration Programs will reflect on the organization’s nearly two decades of work and will provide support that is needed during this challenging time. In honor of the Anniversary, VOICES special programs and events include:
Reflections on the 20th Anniversary – A retrospective video featuring personal stories of prominent dignitaries
Pathways to Resilience Programs & Support Services – Ongoing support groups, workshops and webinars
9/11 Living Memorial Honoring Survivors & Responders – For the over 4,100 who died since of 9/11-related illnesses
The Wolfgruber Digital Resource Library – Access to VOICES extensive resources, publications, and videos
Voices of Reflection Art Exhibit – At Silvermine Art Center and online, from September 1 – October 9
20th Annual Remembrance Symposium – VOICES virtual and in-person event in NYC, September 9 and 10
Always Remember Gala – An inspirational evening commemorating VOICES work, at Cipriani’s in NYC, November 12
“Our annual Golf Outing is an opportunity for us to connect directly with some of our most ardent and loyal supporters while raising funds to continue our work, during this special 20th Anniversary commemorative year. We would especially like to thank our early and generous sponsors POLO Ralph Lauren, Ray Catena Lexus of Larchmont, and Kane 11 socks,” said Fetchet.
“The outing, given its longevity, is near sellout, so for those who may like to play or put together a foursome, please reach out sooner rather than later to Voices” he continued.
