Fire Chief Richard Lyman On Hand To Present Plaque To Family

White Plains, New York – Local business man and Charity Shoot Out organizer Larry Woodard never met Firefighter Warren Ogburn. but that didn’t stop him from having a strong desire to see the firefighter honored.

“I know firefighters who served with Warren and I was always struck by the fact that he was the only White Plains firefighter that has died in the line of duty. I wanted to help make sure we remember him properly with a permanent memorial”

So Woodard, President of a Manhattan-based advertising agency, developed the 16 Trees Project to plant 16 trees (one for each year since Warren’s death) at Maple Moor Golf Course during the 2nd Annual Westchester Charity Shoot Out.

The tournament was a success, raising money for the Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless and The Thomas H. Slater Center. About 50 golfers weathered the 90 degree heat and the high humidity to play Maple Moor Golf Course, bid at a silent auction and meet celebrities like Former NFL Quarterback and Syracuse University standout Don McPherson.

The family of Warren Ogburn including his mother, sister, brother and son along with Fire Chief Richard Lyman all participated in a short ceremony. A bagpiper in traditional kilt led the small crowd to the site of the first tree. A prayer was said. The bagpipes played Amazing Grace and marched into the sunset while the family members each placed a shovel of dirt onto the tree roots.

The ceremony was followed by a Banquet at the course catered by Yvonne’s Sothern Cuisine of Pelham New York.

Golf Charity Booster

Local ad exec brings passion for golf to event management.

Camillo VillegasJust a year after the PGA Tour surpassed the one billion dollar mark in money raised for charity, White Plains resident Larry Woodard decided to use his promotional talents—and his love for golf—to raise money for various causes in Westchester. As the man behind the famous Oprah car giveaway, Woodard understands how to stage high-profile events. In real life, he’s the CEO of Vigilante Advertising in Manhattan. In addition to GM’s Buick division, he does advertising for Heineken and the USTA.

“Because golf has been part of so many of our ventures,” Woodard explains, “I’ve played in a ton of pro-ams. The golf thing runs deep with me, so I decided to start a golf charity consulting business and use my platinum golf Rolodex to up the ante and increase the dollars raised by the events.” Woodard says his passion for the game came from his father, Graham “Woody” Woodard, who learned the game playing on military bases.

The first assignment for Larry Woodard Golf was a fund-raiser for the New Rochelle High School Booster’s Club at Wykagyl Country Club in 2006. This year, he’s preparing for the third iteration of the All-Westchester Charity Shoot Out to be played August 23 at Hudson Hills. He’s also planning a golf festival and club fitting as well as a youth event at White Plains Golf Driving Range on Dobbs Ferry Road. More information can be found at larrywoodardgolf.com

Some of the organizations that have benefited from Woodard’s expertise include the Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless, YMCA, the Slater Center, and the Westchester Music Conservatory.

Woodard’s sights are set high. He says, “My lofty goal is to one day shut down all the county courses on one day for charity.”
