Each year, the Pathfinder Village Foundation organizes fundraisers in support of its scholarship program, which is vital to Pathfinder Village residents and students. The Pathfinder Village-Baseball Hall of Fame Golf Invitational and the Pathfinder Village Tennis Tennis Classic are held in September at the beautiful lakeside settings of the Leatherstocking Golf Course and the Cooperstown Country Club.
Annually, these events raise over $60,000 to assist residents and students with tuition charges to help them continue on their paths of growth and independence, as they realize the
benefits of community. In 2021, these events will take place following public health guidance and protocols. Please click on the sections below to learn more about our fun events that provide meaningful assistance to Pathfinder families.
Pathfinder Village-Baseball Hall of Fame
With roots going back to 1982, the Pathfinder Village-Baseball Hall of Fame Golf Invitational features teams of four amateurs playing a two-best ball round at the renowned Leatherstocking Golf Course. Hosted by the incomparable The Otesaga Resort Hotel, and with Presenting Sponsor NBT Bank, and Corporate Sponsor Coca-Cola Beverages Northeast, the tournament features challenges and camaraderie at the pristine lakeside golf course. The tournament fun continues into the evening with a lakeside reception and the awards banquet at the historic hotel’s Dining Room, which features a keynote by a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The tournament is organized by a volunteer committee chaired by Daryl Forsythe and LGC Host Professional Tim Quirk.

Each year it attracts players from throughout the country and is considered the region’s preeminent charitable tennis tournament. The tournament is organized by a volunteer committee chaired by Bob and Patricia Hanft.
