Our 20th Anniversary Divine Compassion Golf Classic was certainly the best ever! The weather was just perfect for the golfers to enjoy a beautiful round of golf at Fenway Country Club. Our honorees, Helen & Mike Daly, did an outstanding job graciously greeting people and accepting praise from all who came. It was obvious that there was a great sense of joy during the Golf Dinner, as the Founding Golf Committee was reunited and recognized by Sr. Laura Donovan. All of the past Honorees were in attendance as well, and were duly recognized once again for their support and commitment to the mission of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion.
Helen and Mike were both born, raised, educated and married in the Bronx, New York. Helen is an alumna of Aquinas High School and Mike is a “Proud Jasper,” having graduated from both Manhattan Prep and Manhattan College. They have four married children; Michael III, Christopher, Jennifer, and Elizabeth and are the proud grandparents of 11 grandchildren.
Helen and Mike have been parishioners of Our Lady of Sorrows Church, in White Plains, for almost 40 years. It is through their involvement at Our Lady of Sorrows School that they became associated with and ultimately loyal friends and supporters of the RDC. All four of their children and several grandchildren are graduates of the school or are currently enrolled. While their children were students at OLS, Helen and Mike were active members and supporters of the Women’s Guild, Men’s Club and School Committee. Mike also served as President of the Parish Council. In addition, in the 1980’s, Helen was a member of the notorious squad of White Plains Softball players known as “Nun Better.” In addition, she graciously volunteered to be the Tennis Coach at Good Counsel Academy High School when her daughter Jennifer was a student there.
In addition to their involvement at OLS, on many occasions over the past years, Mike has demonstrated his willingness to assist the Sisters in various areas of need utilizing his finance background. His first affiliation began when Sr. Patricia Sheridan asked Mike to become a member of the Finance Committee of Preston High School, a sponsored ministry of the congregation. Mike’s generosity and expertise carried him forward to become Chairman of the Finance Committee and eventually President of the Board of Trustees of Preston High School.
Mike’s willingness to assist others goes beyond the RDC Community. Over the years Mike has been involved in various other charitable, social and local civic organizations. He is currently a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and the Finance Committee at Archbishop Stepinac High School, both in White Plains. He has held the position of President of the Board of Governors of Westchester Hills Golf Club, the Gedney Neighborhood Association and the Daniel Gray Fishing Club of White Plains. He was previously a member of the Committee on Charity of the Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in the County of Westchester, and the Board of Trustees of the former St. Agnes Hospital.
Recognized in the Irish American Community in White Plains, Mike served as Grand Marshal of the 2013 White Plains St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Our hats are off to the Dalys, who enrich their families, communities and friends in endless ways. Our sincere congrats to Helen & Mike!
