Celebrating 18 years

New York Golf Classic

The annual New York Golf Classic, hosted in Long Island, brings together business and community leaders to raise critical funds for AKF's programs and services. The day includes a fun, competitive day of golf and ends with an auction and dinner.


97 cents of every donated dollar goes to patients and programs.

Every success, milestone and breakthrough we achieve for patients and their families depends on caring and generous people like you. Your gift goes further when you give to AKF.
