The inaugural Smithtown Classic and after-party hosted by Jason E. Zimmerman, CEO of Bridgehampton Equities, to support the Little Saint Nick Foundation took place on Monday, June 14 at the Smithtown Landing Country Club.

Check-in and lunch began around noon, and a 2 p.m. shotgun kicked off the tournament. Guests celebrated with an after-party at about 6:30 p.m. with special celebrity guests, live entertainment, an open bar, and dinner.

All revenue from the benefit went to support this humanitarian effort. The Little Saint Nick Foundation (LSNF) is a non-profit founded in 2004 by Raymond Mohler, Jr. It is headquartered in New York with an expansion chapter in Florida.

Mohler’s inspiration for LSNF began at the age of six with the diagnosis of his rare disorder, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, a hip disorder found in young children. He was fortunate to not have a life-threatening disease and felt prompted to give back to the children who were not as fortunate as him. His passion for LSNF continues to provide relief from the fear, anxiety, and isolation in children and their families that can emerge as a result of a hospital visit and recovery. The Little Saint Nick Foundation’s mission is to not only help children and families who are ill but to inspire young people to give back to those in need.

The Little Saint Nick Foundation’s development of programs, such as their emergency department gift bag program, family care package program, and many others, are all centered upon improving the lives of children with illnesses while keeping their families in mind.
