Northfield Community LDC’s 4th Annual Golf Outing

Northfield Community LDC’s 4th Annual Golf Outing


Friends of Northfield LDC,

Spring is here and so it must be time again for our Annual Golf Outing.  We cordially invite you to participate in our 4th Annual Golf Outing and Dinner on Thursday, May 28, 2015, at Silver Lake Golf Course.  

RSVP by May 16, 2015.  For reservations or additional information call: (718) 442-7351 ext. 223 or 238

For those of you who have been participating over the past several years; we look forward to welcoming you again. For those newcomers we know you will have a wonderful day!  Those who do not golf are welcome to join us for dinner only.

This golf fundraiser will benefit us tremendously at Northfield Community LDC.

We are a community based non-profit that has been in operation since 1978. Through this event, we offer you the opportunity to show support for Northfield LDC’s services to the Staten Island community.

We are proud of the work we do and struggle every day to continue our work to provide assistance to the residents and small businesses in our community. Non-profit organizations like ours are finding it more and more challenging to meet our goals due to lack of funding sources; it has therefore become necessary to find alternate sources to make up for this.

Your continued generous support, through donations or sponsorship, will go a long way to help Northfield Community LDC and the individuals we so diligently work to help.

If you would like more information about our corporation or would like to suggest other ways for your company to get involved with our upcoming event, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Kindest Regards,

Joan Catalano – Executive Director

Honor your unsung heroes!

When was the last time you took the time to publicly thank your long time volunteer, the staff member who goes above and beyond, the Board member who is committed to the success of your organization and who serves as  a key ambassador and confidant?  You know that these people are at the core of your organization’s success, and are happy to have them stand up and be recognized!

The 2014 Staten Island NFP Association Community Service Awards is an outstanding opportunity to publicly recognize the outstanding commitment and support of those who are most important to your organization in a very easy and efficient manner. In short –  we book the venue, we invite the speakers, we produce the program and awards and take care of the event logistics – all you do is show up with your group and enjoy the day! Last year we were pleased to welcome close to 300 people at this wonderful event and we are looking forward to a similarly rousing event in 2014.

Once again this year we are thrilled to provide the opportunity to secure individual profiles in the Staten Island Advance for all honorees! This very successful component of the Awards event means that every honoree will receive personal, direct recognition in front of the entirety of the Staten Island community!

This year’s SINFPA Community Service Awards event will take place at 11am on Sunday, November 16th, at the Grand Oaks Country Club (formerly the South Shore Country Club).   Organizations wishing to honor someone at this event can reserve a table of ten tickets (to include the honoree) for $550 at this link.

2013 Community Service Awards

Take this opportunity to honor your unsung heroes in an easy and efficient way.

The 2013 Staten Island NFP Association Community Service Awards ceremony  is taking place on November 17th, 2013 at the Hilton Garden Inn.  This third annual event is designed to provide your organization with an easy way to thank the “unsung hero” supporters of your organization in a joint recognition ceremony.  Over the past two years we have been pleased to honor long time staff members, volunteers, and Board members who have served their organizations without recognition for years and sometimes decades, and we are very much looking forward to doing the same this year.

This year the SINFPA is pleased to add a very important and very exciting addition to the benefits provided through the Community Service Awards: between now and November 17th every award honoree will be individually profiled in the Staten Island Advance.   This means that in addition to receiving recognition at the public awards event, your honoree will also have the story of their devotion and dedication to your organization presented to our entire Borough.

Because we are working with the Advance to provide this VERY special honoree benefit, we will need for interested organizations to reserve their honoree spot as soon as possible.   Visit  now to reserve your honoree spot at $550 including ten tickets to the awards event.
