With more than 25 years of experience in the financial industry, Gary Fournier serves as a managing director at the Los Angeles offices of JP Morgan. Away from assisting clients with their portfolios, Gary Fournier contributes to several nonprofits, including Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

Guiding Eyes for the Blind (GEB) formed in 1954 with the mission of training dogs to help people with blindness or other visual impairments. Accredited by the International Guide Dog Federation, the nonprofit has trained and graduated more than 7,000 teams of dogs, and it continues to produce high-quality animal assistants for those in need.

Among its fund-raising efforts, GEB hosts an annual Golf Classic at the Mount Kisco Country Club in Westchester County, New York. The 2017 event will take place on June 12, and a number of marketing opportunities are available, including journal advertisements and sponsoring a hole. Plus, those donating at the top four tiers, from Gold to Titanium, will gain access to a sponsor-recognition event attended by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

Now in its 40th year, the Golf Classic is presented in partnership with the Corcoran Cup, a major tournament for golfers who are blind that will be held at the Mount Kisco Country Club on June 11. For more information on the Golf Classic, visit
