Like many of you, all of us at BNC Insurance believe in giving back to our communities. That’s why we’re so excited to continue our partnership with Blythedale Children's Hospital, by sponsoring the fourth annual BNC Insurance Fall Golf Classic for Blythedale, on Thursday, September 23 at the Fenway Golf Club in Scarsdale, NY. 
All proceeds raised by The 2021 BNC Insurance Fall Golf Classic for Blythedale will help underwrite Blythedale’s Day Hospital Program.
Blythedale Children’s Hospital offers a specialty outpatient Day Hospital Program for children who are able to live at home, but still require a level of medical and/or rehabilitative care that cannot be met by their school or a community outpatient program. Children receive daily medical supervision and nursing care, comprehensive rehabilitation services (physical, occupational, speech and/or feeding therapy), and education through the Mt. Pleasant Blythedale Union Free School District (the only public school in NYS located on the campus of a hospital) and the Early Childhood Center.  
We hope you will support Blythedale by joining us for a day of golf. Don’t play? Then please come for an outdoor dinner and cocktails while enjoying the beautiful sunset on Fenway's patio. Have a conflict? Even if you can’t make it, you can still support this cause through our  many sponsorship opportunities  or by donating an auction item.  
We know that many of you, as well as many of our team members, have personally supported the vital work of Blythedale Children’s Hospital. This golf tournament is a fun way to build on that support. We hope you will consider participating in this worthy cause.
Click here by September 10th  to participate in any way you can.
