EVENTS

The Knights of York began as a small group of professionals, who in the spirit of friendship and with a common purpose, would meet regularly to network and enjoy lively conversations over a savory meal. Out of these meetings, the Knights soon expressed an enormous sense of appreciation for their good fortune in life and business, and soon they wanted to give back to society, to dedicate themselves to an important cause. Their motto, “Every Knight for Their Tomorrow,” expresses the Knights’ desire to enrich the lives of children in need through charitable gift giving and by performing selfless deeds.

Early fundraising was focused on well-received golf outings, and quickly demonstrated how small actions could achieve great results. Since then, the Knights have undertaken other events, such as the Fall Knight Event, holiday gift giving, and its most ambitious, the Annual Black Tie Affair and Auction.

ANNUAL EVENTS

Throughout the year, the Knights of York host a variety of events to support

local children’s organizations in the New York metropolitan area, including a few

special events that repeat annually.

GOLF OUTINGS

The annual Golf Outing at Harbor Links Golf Course is one of our most popular events. It is an all-inclusive golf tournament featuring 19 holes and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and a fully-stocked beverage cart that continually rides around the course, as well as a barbeque grill stationed mid-point on the course.

FALL KNIGHT EVENT

The Fall Knight Event, held at Aleo Restaurant, is the organization’s longest running fundraiser. Formerly called Cigar Night, this event is more raucous than others and features hand-rolled cigars, hors d’oeuvres, a buffet, free shots and wine tastings, raffle prizes, and a generous 50/50 drawing. The event kicks off the holiday season and the US Marine’s “Toys for Tots” program.

HOLIDAY GIFT GIVING

The Knights armor shines brightest when it comes to holiday toy gift giving at local hospitals. The Knights of York make special visits to hospitals in the tri-state area, where its members dress up as Santa Claus and elves to bring hundreds of presents to children in the hopes of brightening their spirits.
