July 6, 2016 – CAF is thrilled to announce that we are one of the beneficiaries of the Milana Family Foundation’s upcoming Golf Outing and Poker Tournament. In addition to golf and poker, this event also features both a 50/50 raffle and a raffle for tickets to the red-hot Broadway musical “Hamilton.”
The 1st Annual Charity Golf Outing & Poker Tournament will take place September 12 at the Mill River Club in Oyster Bay, NY. The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation and another charity, Stop Abuse, will receive the proceeds from this event, thanks to the generosity of Tom Milana and the Milana Family Foundation.

The Mill River Club features a spectacular golf course designed by course architect Gerald Roby. One side incorporated the meadowlands, undulating terrain, and the infinite variety of apple orchards, as the beautiful basis for a front nine. On the other hand, a back nine of specimen trees, challenging hills, and an exceptional golf experience, became a legend of golfing wonder.
Individual golfer tickets are $1,250 (and includes one buyin for the Poker Tournament). Those who wish to attend only the Poker Tournament may purchase an initial buyin for $500; rebuys are available for the first hour of the tournament. The grand prize for the Poker Tournament is 5 nights in a 4-bedroom apartment in the Albany Bahamas Luxury Resort (a $30,000+ value).
The winner of the 50-50 raffle will receive half of the money raised from raffles sold for that purpose; these raffle tickets are $100 each. The “Hamilton” raffle tickets are $25 each (or 5 for $100). The winner of that raffle will receive 2 tickets to the December 8 performance of the Tony-winning musical, as well as a 1 night stay at the Gansevoort, Park Avenue, and a $300 gift certificate to American Cut Restaurant. You do not need to be present to win either of the raffles.
