NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Susan Varsames will be recognized as Woman of the Year by the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle on Tuesday, Oct. 14.
This recognition will take place during the organization’s 52nd annual Golf Outing & Tennis Challenge at Wykagyl Country Club.
The award will be presented to Varsames for her years of dedication to serving children, in particular those with special needs.
Varsames is the founder of Holistic Learning Center, an organization that offers expertise in the field of language, learning, behavior and motor delays/disorders.
The center works with children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, pervasive developmental disorder, autism, sensory processing disorder, auditory processing disorder, language delay, learning disabilities and global developmental delay, and offers them a variety of services to support their growth and development.
“I believe that children are our greatest resource and have devoted my professional life to helping them, particularly those with special needs reach their full potential," said Varsames.
"That’s why the mission and message of the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle resonates so deeply with me. Knowing that the organization offers high-quality programming for all children, including those with special needs, inspires me to help raise awareness and funds to support the kids they serve each day.”
This year’s Golf Outing & Tennis Challenge offers a barbecue-style luncheon, a noon shotgun start, a gift for each participant and dinner reception complete with awards presentations for top players. Individual golf tickets are $450.
The cost per golf foursome is $1,800, and the fee for individual tennis challenge participants is $175. A limited number of sponsorship opportunities and journal advertising options are available for purchase.
