Robert Channing, mentalist, ESP, and hypnotist

In celebration of the nonprofit’s 50th anniversary, the Arc Herkimer Golf Open will feature Robert Channing, mentalist, ESP, and hypnotist on Thursday, June 6 at Mohawk Valley Country Club in Little Falls, NY.

Proceeds from the golf open support underfunded and unfunded programs for individuals with disabilities and others in the community. Robert Channing will bring his command of the strange and incredible mysteries of the mind to the golf open. Imagine driving the ball or navigating a course while driving a golf cart; both while blindfolded. Channing will amaze, engage, and entertain golfers both while golfing and at the end of the day; all for a great cause.

The ticket price of $150 is all inclusive for golf, cart, lunch, games, cocktails and grand buffet dinner, and more. A vast array of prizes and contests this year also includes a silent auction for topflight items and a ticket drawing for a golfer to putt for $10,000. All registered golfers will be eligible to win an annual membership to Mohawk Valley Country Club. Waterfront Grille will cater the event.

Captain and crew registration begins at 9:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. To register for the Arc Herkimer’s golf open, visit To become a sponsor, or for more information, contact Kristen Smith, Arc Herkimer special events and fundraising manager at (315) 574-7353 or e-mail
