2017 MPIGNY Kalahari Resort Golf Outing

The 2017 MPIGNY Kalahari Resort Golf Outing is in the books! It was yet another exciting (and hot!) day out on Long Island at Harbor Links Golf Course. The annual event included 32 foursomes, dozens of qualified meeting planners and a lot of great suppliers from all over the country, coming in to town for this can’t miss industry event. The night before the outing, the MPIGNY Golf Committee kicked off the festivities with a wonderful reception at Café SFA inside Saks Fifth Avenue. The welcome reception was a great way to kick off the event and was well received by all in attendance. The 2017-2018 MPIGNY Golf Committee is already beginning preparations on next year’s event so stay tuned for more details this fall.
