It was an incredible day of support for our organization and it was even more exciting to see how much it has grown and evolved as the years go by. One of the most touching moments was having Devon Quigley and his mother join us. He is the reason we are here today.
Serving as chair of the tournament was CBS 12 News morning anchor Matt Lincoln who was helped by an amazing committee which included Andrea McMillan, Gil Martinez, Pam Swensen, Alan Salomon, Sally Chester Myk Nelsen, Vic Carlucci and Jon Levy.
Proceeds from the Golf Classic support CCH’s KINDER Project, the organization’s program which provides durable medical equipment and supplies, at no cost, to children with special needs. Many of the children in CCH’s KINDER Project are affected by serious medical conditions and would not be able to afford the supplies and equipment that enables them to lead more independent lives.
In addition to the 18 holes, golfers had a friendly competition to take home prizes for Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, a Putting Contest and Hole in One prize supplied by Arrigo Dodge Jeep Chrysler. Taking home the top prize was the winning foursome of Brandon Rippo, Eric West, Johnny Matute, and Danny German.
Other notable guests in attendance include Miss South Florida Fair Mariluz Cook, Miss Palm Beach County Jessica Fernandez, Village of Wellington Vice Mayor Mike Napoleone, and Village of Wellington Councilman John McGovern.
On behalf of all the amazing volunteers, team members and supporters for the Annual Golf Classic, we want to say thank you!
