Another Successful Golf Outing - Despite the rain!
NECA golfers are real troupers! On Monday, Sept. 25th, they answered the call to arrive on the course several hours earlier to avoid golfing 18 holes in the rain. Around noon, the skies opened yet most golfed at least 9 holes and some, the full 18. They were wet but happy.
Since this is an outing for fun and charity, just about everyone purchased a "passport" entitling them to a Mulligan, entry in the putting contest for a chance to win a $500 Yeti cooler and a raffle ticket for a basket of wine. Many tried their hand at the putting contest but only a few succeeded (Scott Baeton of JBS, Norm Veroneau of Simoniz and Ian Paisner of ScrubaDub), and Ian was the winner of the Yeti. At the reception and dinner, upon seeing the rich array of possible prizes, ticket sales for chances to win were brisk. Many went home happy with terrific prizes in hand.
Paul Vercollone, in fine stand-up comic form, was our auctioneer, raising an additional $2,150 from bids on Bruins tickets donated by Peter Silk of JP Car Wash, the ever popular sailing cruise donated by Bob Paisner, red hot Red Sox tickets donated by Paul Vercollone, Cuban cigars donated by Bob Katseff, and a basket of wine donated by Paul Vercollone, enhanced with an extra golfer trophy.
Golfer prize winners were as follows:
As a result of the generosity of sponsors and golfers, we raised $10,000, $7,000 of which will be donated to Lovin' Spoonfuls food rescue and $3,000 to the NECA Scholarship Program.
Again, we'd like to thank our generous sponsors
