"Each year at our 19th Hole on the Park fundraiser, Michael donates his time and efforts to set up a 50-foot putting green in the center of the ball room. It is the highlight of the evening and our guests absolutely love trying to make that long putt," said Kate Keller, Director of Member Services, Public Relations, and Special Events and Young Benefactors Co-Founder. "Since day one, Michael has been a great supporter of the Young Benefactors and of The First Tee of Metropolitan New York."
"I've worked with Michael on various projects including a putting green for the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at the Westchester Medical Center, a putting and chipping green at our MGA headquarters in Elmsford, a putting green and tee-line project at our First Tee facility at the Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course in Bridgeport, CT, and on a significant tee and putting green renovation project at our First Tee facility at Weequahic Park in Newark, New Jersey," says MGA Executive Director Jay Mottola. "In each of these cases, Michael exceeded expectations, while at the same time donating part of his services for the good of the game."
The MGA foundation continues to lead efforts to make golf accessible for young people of all ages with their junior competitions, educational programs, caddie academies, and the many other programs and events. As a golf enthusiast and longtime supporter of the foundation, Lehrer understands the significance of the organization.
“I am a firm believer in giving back to the community and helping out the game of golf," Lehrer said. “First Tee does a wonderful job with the kids and I am happy to help them achieve their goals.”
