So much thanks goes out to all who sponsored and participated in our 21st Annual Golf Tournament benefiting the Friends Youth Mentoring Program on Monday, September 10, 2018. The clouds held firm, though the sun wanted to come out, however the rain held off until soon after the tournament finished. Many golfers said it was perfect conditions. As the pictures show, lots of fun was had golfing and winning! We celebrated the Putting Contest winner, which required a 3-way tie breaker, and the Closest to the Hole contest winner, however the Hole in One prize was not in the cards this year. There were special raffle items such an official Bruins shirt signed by Patrice Bergeron, a Celtics shirt signed by Gordon Hayward, a Ray Cook Tunnel Vision putter, and many more from generous local business and individuals. It was our pleasure to applaud all our amazing sponsors with appreciation for helping us make this such an enjoyable event!
