ARMONK, N.Y. -- Michael Lehrer, president and chief executive officer, of Home Green Advantage, contributed a 50-foot putting green to the 5th annual 19th Hole on the Park fundraiser that benefits The First Tee of Metropolitan New York's Path to College Program.
Armonk-based Home Green Advantage has been providing the putting green for the past several years, allowing party-goers to challenge one another and themselves to see who can make the hole-in-one.
Aside from this contribution, Lehrer has personally donated approximately $10,000 to the Metropolitan Golf Association Foundation since 2008.
"I've worked with Michael on various projects including a putting green for the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at the Westchester Medical Center, a putting and chipping green at our MGA Headquarters Golf Central in Elmsford, a putting green and tee-line project at our First Tee facility at the Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course in Bridgeport, Conn.and on a significant tee and putting green renovation project at our First Tee facility at Weequahic Park in Newark, N.J.," said Mottola.
"In each of these cases, Michael exceeded expectations, while at the same time donating part of his services for 'the good of the game.'"
As a golf enthusiast and longtime supporter of the foundation, Lehrer understands the significance of these events.
“I am a firm believer in giving back to the community and helping out the game of golf," Lehrer said. “First Tee does a wonderful job with the kids and I am happy to help them achieve their goals.”
