This year was the first year our annual golf tournament was a complete sell-out of sponsorships and teams. It started with a great lunch and lots of practice, but Mother Nature threw rain and lightning at us before our guests could hit their first shots. After a few hours wait, golf was cancelled for the day and dinner was moved up.
“Nearly the entire field stayed for dinner and to learn more about our chapter,” said Dan Young, Chapter President. “The real winners are our students and Veterans as the tournament was a huge success.”
The highlight of dinner were our two speakers. Chapter student Ansh Shalia (pictured above right and Veteran Tom Melville spoke about their participation in our programs and how much they enjoy the game of golf.
Huge SHOUT OUT to the staff and members at Royal Palm as they allowed for each foursome to come back out and play before season begins.
Special thank yous to Chapter Director Krista Kersey for organizing this year’s raffle and to our title sponsors Spirit and Norwegian Cruise Lines and Chapter Director Gerry Lintrento for donating airline tickets, cruises and a wine collection for our live auction. The raffle, auction and sponsorships sold helped our Chapter raise over $50,000 to support our mission and programs. Thank you sponsors!!
