Lynbrook chamber gives thousands to community chest


The Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce gave $30,000 to the Lynbrook Community Chest from money raised at the annual Mayor Golf Outing.

The Chamber of Commerce presented the nonprofit organization with a $30,000 check in January. The funds are thanks to so many people coming to the annual Mayor’s Golf Outing on Aug. 14, which specifically aims to raise money for the Community Chest.

“In the last few years we’ve had tremendous participation in the golf outing,” Rina Beach, chair of the Community Chest, said. The event, which saw 144 golfers this year, is hosted by her husband, Mayor Alan Beach. “It’s a community effort.”

The Mayor’s Golf Outing is a collaborative effort between the village government and the Chamber of Commerce, and is spearheaded by coordinator Jeff Greenfield. Their combined efforts provide a medium for Lynbrook neighbors’ generosity, which has produced tens of thousands for the Community Chest every year in recent memory, Beach said.
