St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick, NY held its annual Golf and Tennis Classic on Wednesday, September 17, at the Warwick Valley Country Club on Oakland Avenue.
It was a picture perfect day for the outing with mild temperatures and blue skies that added to the enjoyment of the 67 golfers and 17 tennis players who participated in the first combined event.
The net proceeds of $12,000 will be used to benefit the Bon Secours Warwick Health Foundation Medical Equipment and Technology Fund.
Co-Chairs of this year’s event were Frank Petrucci, Doug Stage and Tennis Chair Jane Brief.
“Combining these two activities into a coordinated fundraiser was a first for the Bon Secours Warwick Health Foundation,” said Petrucci. “And by all accounts the day was a tremendous success. We exceeded our fundraising goal and will contribute the proceeds raised at this event to the Medical Equipment and Technology Fund at St. Anthony Community Hospital.”
Established in 1958, the Warwick Valley Country Club consists of a nine-hole golf course with 18 tee boxes and four state-of-the-art Hydro-Fed soft tennis courts, which afford players extended play without fatigue. The club also features a spacious dining room with a picturesque view and full service bar.
During the Classic golfers and players received a variety of amenities including drinks delivered directly to the participants, lunch at the club and a shrimp and clam bar on the course. Special raffles, prizes and awards were presented during a ceremony following a cocktail hour and dinner.
The winners of the Scramble Format, lowest score, were the men’s foursome, sponsored by Certified Financial Services and Lehman & Getz Engineering, of Will Roerden, Mike McSweeney, Jeremy Valentine and Brian Friedler and the ladies foursome, sponsored by Meadowcrest Associates, of Barbara Sullivan, Jo-Ann Daly, Maureen Kohler and Katie Bisaro.
The winners of the Round robin Tennis doubles tournament were Carl Grunewald and Linda Stephan.
