A special thanks to the American Legion for hosting the dinner and to St. Joe’s/Sam Rizzo for catering the delicious meal. Also to our helpful volunteers which include Sherry, Corey and Amyia, Jake and Katie, Barbara and everyone else for all of their help. Without the support of all our volunteers, sponsors and especially the golfers, the tournament would not have been such a huge success!
Remember for a great time, good food and to benefit local charities look to enter a team next year on Aug. 15, 2020!
Thanks for all your participation and help.
