15th Annual Golf Classic

Monday, August 5, 2019 Indian Hills Country Club Northport, NY

At the 15th Annual Golf Classic, VNSHS was delighted to honor Robert ‘Rob’ Banzer, Superintendent of Northport – East Northport UFSD, for his outstanding service and impact on the community. Since taking over as Superintendent in 2015, Rob has worked to create a collaborative culture based on a common vision and mission focused on the needs of students and expanded educational opportunities through the creation of the Port Academy. During his tenure the district passed a construction bond which has transformed classrooms and athletic fields. He attends numerous student events throughout the year and has participated in St. Baldrick’s, Relay for Life and the ALS Bike Trek for Long Island. Rob is a member of the Northport Rotary, The New York State Council of School Superintendents and the Suffolk County School Superintendents Association.

As the largest fundraiser of the year, this year’s VNSHS Golf Classic brought together golfers and businesses from New York to Florida to raise more than $50,000.00 for Hospice House.  The day kicked off with brunch followed by a shotgun start at noon, 18 holes and concluded with a reception, awards ceremony and raffle. With breathtaking waterfront views, Indian Hills offers a memorable and challenging course to play on.
