YULA's Third Annual Golf Tournament Brings Corporations, Parents, Students, and Alumni Together for a Cause.

Yes, it was hot on Monday in the Valley, but that didn't stop the golfers from having a fantastic time at El Cab.

Golfers, representing companies from across the Southland, YULA parents, and community members, were greeted by YULA Ambassadors as they pulled up to the course. After registration, where they received a bag filled with golf-related goodies, they enjoyed schmoozing over breakfast, sponsored by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.

The golfers lined up in dozens of golf carts for the shotgun start at 10 am. Once on the course, they enjoyed the gorgeous scenery, golf contests, and many food and drink carts. They stopped back at the clubhouse for a La Gondola lunch and margaritas, then back out for more golf.

The cocktail party which followed brought the golfers together with YULA Boys Basketball Alumni, who came out to celebrate Coach Winik's induction into the YULA Athletics Hall of Fame. Coach Winik transformed the Panthers into the winningest team in Jewish basketball history. Coach was presented with a plaque honoring his 21 years of service and a golfing package at Pebble Beach, where he can indulge his passion for golf.

"I was honored and humbled to be recognized for my contributions to the YULA basketball program over the past 21 years. It was great that some of my former players were there to share that with me. I have nothing but love and respect for all the players I had the privilege of coaching over the years. They are the ones who are mainly responsible for all of the great accomplishments I was fortunate enough to be a part of. They are and always will be family to me," said Coach Winik.

Tremendous thanks go to tournament co-chairs David Nagel, Alan Gindi, and Michael Bernstein, as well as the entire Golf Tournament Committee and all the YULA Ambassadors and parent volunteers who helped. Our student body and their parents owe a debt of gratitude to all of them for their hard work on this important fundraising event, which helps ensure that YULA can remain "need blind" in the admissions process.
