Our Fourth Annual “A.L.S. DRIVE FORE THE GREEN” Charity Golf Classic
Raises Over $52,000 for Scholarships!
May 21, 2012
Wow! This event is more and more successful each year! Our committee gets stronger, our raffle and auction items are more exciting, and our group of golfers at 120 continues to grow. We are so pleased to let everyone know that we raised a record breaking $52,000 this year!
This year’s tournament attracted 120 golfers and was held at Pocasset Golf Club and proceeds go to benefit the Foundation’s Scholarship Program.
This year, in addition to our seasoned committee members Tim Denmark, Jeff Beals, Steve Cook, Tara Cronin, Pam Desruisseaux, Rick Duffy, Donna Jordan, Norm McLaughlin, “Chef” John Marcellino, Thomas J. O’Neill and Mary Ann Singersen, we were joined by Corinne Wickel, Peter Hinden, Terry Chalker and Dan Whitney.
Everyone worked above and beyond making this tournament and auction something to be remembered. We are eternally grateful to our fabulous committee members, they worked tirelessly to put together a great event and we couldn’t do it without them.
Tim, Tom and Norm aren’t only on the committee, they are our Golf Ball, Hat and Shirt Sponsors. Thank you to Denmark’s Cleaning Services, Thomas J. O’Neill, Inc., and The PC Class of ’69 Animals Support Team Bobby Murray.
Many thanks as well to our Lunch Sponsor, Roche Bros., our Cart Sponsors, Allied Recycling & Rhode Island Metals, and Hole in One Sponsor, Battles Buick GMC of Bourne. Special thanks to the following for their help and support, Pocasset Golf Club, TD Bank and ServiceMaster South Shore.
Our speaker this year was a Scholarship recipient named Elizabeth Whalen, she is currently preparing to study abroad at NUI, Galway in Ireland this fall. Elizabeth and her family know the pain of living with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, as her Mother, Kathryn has had it since Liz was a child. Elizabeth spoke about growing up under the shadow of an incurable illness and her love for her mother.
This year’s event featured local professional auctioneer, John Terrio, of Dennis. John is a lifelong Cape resident who uses his talent for auctioneering to help numerous area nonprofits.
A live and silent auction followed the tournament with incredible items up for bid including 2013 Masters Tickets, Foursomes at Newport National, New Seabury Country Club, Miacomet Golf Club, Pocasset Golf Club & Willowbend Country Club and sports memorabilia.
Our deepest gratitude to those that gave so generously during the Fund A Need campaign.
Much of the event’s success was due to our hardworking volunteers; Erin, Emily, Ben & Zac Denmark, Beth Flick, Jean & Michelle Whitney, Judy Battles, Georgianna Goehl, Jan Delany, and Members of the Mashpee High School Golf Team.
