Yorktown Restaurant Raises $30K for Autism Speaks

YORKTOWN, N.Y.--A fundraiser held for Autism Speaks showed just how many people are willing to be vocal for a good cause.

Augie’s Prime Cut in Yorktown hosted its first annual golf outing to rasie money for Autism Speaks—and raised over $30,000 for the cause.

The event took place at Garrison Golf Club and then moved to Augie’s later in the evening for a silent auction, cocktail reception and dinner.

Augie’s owners, Sal Barone and Audrey Hocroth, have a personal connection to the foundation, as their daughter has lived with autism since she was a young child.

“I’m amazed at the community’s involvement and proud of my customers and staff for helping us contribute to such a worthy cause. With autism now affecting so many children, these are the times we turn most to our friends, family, and community for support,” Hocroth said. “It was a tremendous, collective effort that allowed us to exceed our fundraising goals and I am so happy I can do this for my daughter.”

The first-time event boasted 75 golfers, including former Giants Player Byron Hunt. Each tee at the course was sponsored by local businesses.

“It is individuals like Sal and Audrey that are truly changing the lives of those living with autism for the better,” said Christie Godowski, Westchester/Fairfield & Greater Hudson Valley Area Director for Autism Speaks. “Thank you to the entire community who came together to support Augie’s Prime Cut and Autism Speaks.”
