9th Annual Wallace Berkowitz Gold Tournament
Wallace Berkowitz, born in New York City, made Sullivan County his home in 1960. He was a graduate of the Bronx School of Science and the City College of New York. A US Army Veteran, he served during the Korean War and was part of the Army Audit Agency. Wally, a CPA, practiced accounting in Monticello and Liberty for 20 years, and was an active stakeholder in civic community organizations. Wally began serving on the New Hope Community Board of Directors in 1989. During his tenure, he served as Board Chair from 1994 to 2004 and as assistant secretary from 2005 to 2008. New Hope Community has flourished as a direct result of his presense, leadership, and most importantly, his humanity.

New Hope Community is excited to announce plans for the creation of a Sensory Garden at our location in Loch Sheldrake, New York, Sullivan County. Sensory gardens create a beautiful outdoor space that fuses the interaction between a person’s five senses (taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight) and a diverse array of elements which celebrate the gifts of nature and enhance one’s sense of harmony, balance and peace.
We have launched our fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $200,000 by May 1st, 2019. This will cover the full cost of our 1.5 acre garden and ensure a space that will dynamically provide opportunities to enjoy a multitude of sensory experiences within a lush, green and colorful oasis. Through the generous contributions of private donors we have currently raised $125,000 and now are committing our full efforts to raise the remaining $75,000 needed to complete this project.
Sensory gardens are proven to enhance the health and wellness of people with and without disabilities. We will not only be providing this garden for the people we serve and the staff that support them; we will be opening our garden to our greater community, free of charge, to support and fuel everyone’s ability to enjoy some downtime in a beautiful outdoor space.Won’t you join us in funding this project?
We know our Sensory Garden will make a meaningful difference in the lives of many and we hope you will feel the excitement, connect with the value of a sensory garden and help us make this a reality! And, whether your donation be small or large, from the bottom of our hearts – thank you for helping us make good things happen!
