Peter Klein, a Melville-based chartered financial analyst, has been named the guest of honor for the YAI’s annual golf outing, slated for Sept. 19 at the North Shore Country Club in Glen Head.
Klein, who lives in Huntington with his wife and three children, is a managing director and partner with High Tower Advisors, a Manhattan-based leasing management platform. He is also president of nonprofit Claire Friedlander Family Foundation, and chairman of the Tilles Center at LIU Post.
George Contos, CEO of YAI, an organization that offers services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, said that Klein and the Claire Friedlander Family Foundation have helped YAI to “create additional opportunities for people with disabilities to become more independent and lead enriching and fulfilling lives.”
Contos added, “Our philosophy of care revolves around empowering the people we support to explore what they need for a quality life… We greatly appreciate and value Peter’s partnership and interest in supporting YAI and our mission.”
This year’s golf outing is expected to include brunch, on-course refreshments and lunch; player contests with prizes; a trick shot show by Brian Pavlet; cocktails; and a dinner with an awards ceremony.
Participants will also receive either a five-day, four-night stay for two in the Pete Dye Golf Lodge at the award-winning Casa De Campo Resort & Villas in LaRomana, Dominican Republic; or a three-day, two-night stay at the Trump National Doral in Miami.
