The Women's Fund of the Capital Region has a mission to promote "the independence, growth, and self-determination of women and girls by supporting projects that create systemic change and move women and girls toward financial stability and independence."
The Legal Project is a private, not-for-profit organization, founded by the Capital District Women's Bar Association in 1995. It provides a variety of free and low-cost legal services to the working poor, victims of domestic violence and other underserved individuals in the Capital District.
Quik Flight is an on-demand private aircraft charter and air ambulance company with administrative offices in the Albany International Airport.
"I have women coming all the way from Orange and Rockland counties," Burns said. "Besides being a great opportunity to network with other business women, it will be a fun way to help other organizations."
Registration costs $100, and a tee-sign will also cost $100. Corporate and business sponsors can be a part of the event for a flat $250 sponsorship fee and be included on all literature and forms and have a tee-sign.
The event includes lunch; "a goody bag"; nine holes of golf; carts or pull carts; beverages on the course; contests; raffles; and photos of each foursome.
The Colonie Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the registration, which begins at the golf course at 11:30 a.m. A "golf clinic" will be held for non-golfers at noon, with that group taking to the course at 12:30 p.m. Experienced golfers will begin at 1:15 p.m., and the event will be followed by a cocktail hour.
Lisa Giruzzi is helping Burns put on the event. The two are holding the event in lieu of their monthly business mixer in Glenmont.
