Traditionally scheduled for the last Friday in September, this year it was postponed due to the weather.

President and CEO Gerard Burke said, "We are incredibly grateful to our anchor sponsor MountainOne Financial Partners and to all our generous and loyal supporters who make this benefit possible and a success. This community event raises vital funds for the children and families we serve and it also allows us to raise awareness about the work we do at Hillcrest. During the afternoon our students join the golfers on the course and for lunch. They love the experience and I know the players appreciate having an opportunity to meet our kids."

Hillcrest Educational Centers serve a critical role for children, adolescents and families, and supporting such work is important to all of us at MountainOne Financial Partners.
