TONIGHT: THE BIGGEST MONSEY EVENT OF THE SUMMER – The Ultimate Guys Night Out & Poolside Volleyball Tournament to Benefit Our Place

Expectations are running high for Our Place’s second annual Ultimate Guys Night Out & Poolside Volleyball Tournament, sponsored by GFI Insurance Brokerage, an exhilarating evening of incredible food, serious volleyball and additional poolside fun to raise money to assist Our Place in its mission of providing services, counseling and drop-in centers for troubled teens.

This is literally the definition of serious fun,” said Rabbi Aryeh Young, director of Our Place.  “We know that everyone who came last year had an unbelievable time and we are looking forward to creating another fabulous experience that will have something for everyone, while simultaneously providing Our Place with desperately needed funding.”

The event will feature a competitive poolside volleyball tournament, taking place at the home of Yosef Zupnik at 7 Rochelle Lane in Wesley Hills.  In addition to a spectacular selection of specialty sushi, the evening will feature the culinary genius of private chef Avi Schiffer and will include steaks, sausages, smoked meats, pass-arounds, wine tasting by Atlantic Beach Kosher Wines and more.

The highlight of the event will be a competitive volleyball tournament, featuring sixteen competitive teams, with tournament seeding based on fundraising rankings. Team captains for this year are Baruch Abramoff, Avi Beren, Josh Berkowitz, Avi Gelbein, Yitz Greenbaum, Chaim Greenfeld, Ezzie Katz, Chezkie Neeman, Sony Perlman, Bentzi Raice, Avi Schwebel, Eli Spitzer, Effy Weissmandl, Neil Zelman and Yosef Zupnik and individuals are invited to join an existing team or to attend the tournament as spectators and enjoy the incredible Guys Night Out.  Doors will open at 6:30 PM with the tournament kicking off at 7:15 PM.

“Last year’s event was beyond amazing,” said event chairman Chaim Greenfield.  “We enjoyed the poolside ambiance, devoured the incredible food and the volleyball tournament was incredibly exciting as we cheered on our favorites, all in the name of Our Place. This was the biggest event of this kind that Monsey has ever seen and we are all pumped to do it all over again this year.”

“This may have been an extremely serious competition with everyone giving it all they had in order to win, but the camaraderie that was felt throughout the night was beyond special, especially when you realize that so much money is being raised for such a worthwhile case,” added co-chair Baruch Abramoff.  “I have been counting the days until this year’s tournament.

Sponsors for the evening include GFI Realty Services, Inc., GFI Insurance Brokerage, Inc., The Melohn Group, EMStar, Capital Funding Group, Fairmont Insurance and Safrin Associates. Eden Wok of New Rochelle, a long time supporter of Our Place, is both an event sponsor and will be donating sushi for the evening. A large turnout is expected for the evening.
