Los Angeles Jewish Home Annual Golf Fundraiser Re-Named the Bill Belzberg Memorial Longest Day of Go
RESEDA – The Los Angeles Jewish Home’s annual “Longest Day of Golf” fundraising event has been renamed “The Bill Belzberg Memorial Longest Day of Golf Benefitting the Los Angeles Jewish Home.” The 17th annual golfing event will take place on Monday, July 7, 2014 at the Woodland Hills Country Club, 21150 Dumetz Rd, Woodland Hills, CA 91364, starting at 6:00 a.m. and wrapping up at sundown.
The renaming of the event is a tribute to Bill Belzberg for his longtime commitment to the Home. He was an avid golf enthusiast as well as a noted philanthropist. He assumed leadership roles in, and financial support for, a wide variety of Jewish and non-Jewish causes in Los Angeles, Israel and Canada. With respect to the Jewish Home, Bill and his wife, Barbara, were charter members of the Marilyn and Monty Hall Statesmen Society and important sponsors of many Jewish Home events, including the “Longest Day of Golf” for previous years.
The purpose of the Longest Day of Golf is to golf as many holes as possible and ask business acquaintances, friends and relatives to sponsor participants for a certain amount per hole or a flat donation. Every hole completed means additional funds to benefit the thousands of seniors the Home serves in the Los Angeles community.
The all-day event has participants golfing from sunrise to sunset with a goal of raising funds based on the number of holes played.
