Golf tournament raises scholarship, disaster relief funds

golfThank you to all who supported our annual golf tournament, held this year on Sept. 13, 2019 at the Philip J. Rotella Golf Course in Thiells.

We had nearly 100 golfers supporting this important fundraiser and beautiful weather for a day of golf. The big surprise of the day was the announcement that the tournament has now been named the Billy Riccaldo Annual Golf Classic, honoring the former longtime region president who started the golf fundraiser a decade ago. While our golf committee had this change in the works throughout the planning process, they surprised Riccaldo with the announcement when he arrived the day of the golf tournament.

Thanks to all who supported the event by golfing, donating prizes, and sponsoring holes. Southern Region President Anthony Adamo said the proceeds from the event will allow us to continue our college scholarship program next spring for members’ children, as well as support our emergency/disaster relief fund.
