Chelsea Geyer (NC '12) Golf Classic Luncheon Speaker

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday September 12, 2016


Why do our friends participate in the Nyack College Opportunity Golf Classic each year?

For more than a decade, Nyack College has hosted a great day of golfing on a world class venue. The annual event was held recently at the Saint Andrew’s Golf Club in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. Favored with beautiful weather, golfers enjoyed an exceptional course with an updated design by golf icon Jack Nicklaus, as well as a silent auction and delicious luncheon. Guest speaker for event was Chelsea Geyer, 2012 Nyack College alumna and executive director of DC127, a non-profit in the nation’s capital whose mission is to “reverse the foster care wait list in Washington, DC.”

The Aurora, Colorado native learned about foster care firsthand and at a young age, as three of her siblings joined her family through foster care and adoption. Chelsea’s riveting story, shared at churches, community events and other venues, is one that will inspire others who wonder how they can make a difference in someone else’s life. She is a prime example of the fruit borne at Nyack College—one of some 32,000 alumni who serve in the U.S. and around the world.
