It was hot – very hot – for the 28th Annual Golf Day in Memory of Jack Stein, but nearly 190 golfers braved the heat for a day on the links for a great cause. Once again, the Golf Day was held at the scenic and award-winning ThunderHawk Golf Club in Beach Park. There was much excitement throughout the day with contests, presentations and more.
Building on last year’s popularity, this year’s event continued with both morning and afternoon shotgun starts, which allowed for a quicker pace and more fun. There were many contests to be won, including Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and a Putting Contest. And of course every golf outing has an opportunity to win a spectacular prize in the Hole-in-One contest. This year golfers could win a 2012 Toyota Prius courtesy of The Resnick Automotive Group. There was a golfer who did secure a hole in one, but sadly, not at the Hole-in-One tee. There’s always next year!
Once again the Lambs Farm Special Olympics golf team took part in the event, using it as an additional practice before their regional Special Olympics competition. During the luncheon, the players were individually recognized as well.
The Golf Day is Lambs Farm’s longest-running annual event. This year’s outing raised more than $150,000 for our programs and services. Thank you to all of our sponsors – especially Masters Sponsor KPMG LLP – for their generous support. Save the date for next year’s event – July 16, 2013!
