2016 GNYADA Charity Golf Outing

$118K Raised in Support of Automotive Education

Our 11th annual charity golf outing could not have been a bigger success!

We were thrilled to host a record-high 421 attendees at the Old Westbury Golf & Country Club, on Monday, June 20. Everyone enjoyed a day of perfect weather, fun golf and great food. And best of all, we raised $118,000 in support of automotive education in metro New York.

GNYADA thanks everyone who joined us for this important day, which has been a testament to the generosity and community investment of our devoted members for more than a decade now.

GNYADA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

GNYADA's Annual Charity Golf Outing raises money to support scholarships for students who wish to pursue careers in our industry. 

The funds are distributed among highly deserving automotive technology candidates, through our Center for Automotive Education and Training. The Golf Outing is a yearly sellout event, bringing together all sectors of the industry, for a day of camaraderie, friendly competition, gourmet dining, and exciting prizes.

GNYADA began its scholarship program when it first opened the Center for Automotive Education & Training in 2005. Since then, the Association has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in student grants, to be distributed through the Center.
