Masks when not on the golf course, physical distancing, plentiful hand sanitizer, and no post-golf festivities made Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster’s 2020 Golf for Charity Outing a tournament to remember.
Catholic Charities hosted 18 foursomes at West Hills Country Club for its 14th annual golf outing to raise much-needed funds for the non-profit agency’s programs in the community, including emergency food and shelter assistance and addiction prevention and treatment. Nearly $40,000 was raised to support Catholic Charities work in Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties.
Due to the revised program, winners were announced the following day and prizes were delivered by mail. Winning the top spot for women was the foursome of Kim Corkum, Janet Grahn, Mary Juliano, and Linda Stephan all of Warwick. Earning first place for men was the foursome of Jake Kriney, CJ LaCosta, Tom Larsen, and Greg Lufty. All winners received gift certificates to the West Hills Pro Shop.
The 2021 Golf for Charity Outing will be held at West Hills Country Club on Mon., Sept. 20, 2021.
Ginny Brown, Catholic Charities board member, Shannon Kelly, Catholic Charities Deputy CEO, & Susan Murray-Tetz, Catholic Charities board member, greeted golfers & sold raffle tickets to raise much-needed funds for Catholic Charities programs in the community.
