Fundraising Events

Special fundraising events are held throughout the year to support the Visiting Nurse Service of New York’s charitable and community benefit programs so that compassionate care can be provided to the most vulnerable and underserved populations who need it most.

Annually, VNSNY hosts two major fundraising events, including the fall VNSNY Benefit Dinner and the spring Golf Classic.  Both events are successful ways for VNSNY to build awareness of our mission and help generate contributions from philanthropic organizations and individuals.

VNSNY 2020 Golf Classic

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York 2020 Golf Classic, re-scheduled for August 3rd, had to be canceled due to the ongoing pandemic.

The decision was not an easy one. As a leading health care organization in New York, VNSNY is committed to ensuring the safety of everyone we’re in contact with, including our staff, our patients, and our guests at VNSNY events. After much thought and consideration, and with the New York State restrictions and guidelines in place, it was decided we could not go ahead with the event in the manner that people are so accustomed to and look forward to with such enthusiasm. It was the responsible and prudent decision.

We did not take this decision lightly. Besides being a wonderful opportunity to bring together VNSNY’s friends and supporters, the 2020 VNSNY Golf Classic was to provide much-needed funds for our Coronavirus Response Fund as well as the VNSNY Veterans Programs. We hope you understand these ongoing needs, and we look forward to greeting you during better times at our 2021 outing.

Please contact John Billeci at [email protected] or 1-212-609-1565 with any questions.
