This Thursday, the Bayside Business Association will honor two longtime business owners with a day of networking and golf.
The BBA announced the return of its annual Golf Classic at the Clearview Golf Park at 202-12 Willets Point Blvd. on Sept. 23. This year, the event will concurrently celebrate the retirement of Jon Schenck of the Jon Schenck State Farm Agency and Frank Scordo of the Scordo Allstate Agency.
Scordo and Schenck are both members of the BBA and are retiring as business owners after 35 and 46 years, respectively. Proceeds from the Golf Classic will go toward the honorees’ charities of choice, Transitional Services of New York and The Tourette Association of America.
The day of activities begins at 11:30 a.m. with registration and a barbecue lunch, which includes an address by Senator John Liu. Golf begins at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start, followed by an outdoor dinner, open bar, raffles and prizes starting at 6 p.m.
“We are thrilled to be able to host our outing again this year and are so looking forward to a great day reconnecting with our members and friends. 2020 was a very difficult year for all and especially the business community. We look at this as a chance to celebrate their resilience and take a pause to have some fun. Frank Scordo and Jon Schenck have been instrumental in the success of the BBA for many years. They are two very worthy honorees and we are pleased to be able to celebrate their achievements,” BBA President Ed Probst said.
The BBA has served the business community since its inception in 1997 and is credited as the most instrumental force in forming the Bayside Village Business Improvement District. Throughout the years, the nonprofit has also taken art in beautification projects like street cleaning, tree planing and graffiti removal.
