On Monday, May 6, we held our 24th annual Golf Tournament & Dinner at the beautiful Hempstead Country Club on Long Island, honoring one of our special benefactors, Don Luneburg.
It was a perfect day – the weather was beautiful, sunny but not too hot. There was no wind to blow the balls away from the hole, which helped the golfers hit the ball straight! There were 138 players who participated in the largest fundraiser for Queen of Peace Residence.
Our Residents and Little Sisters were also there, helping at the registration table, selling raffle tickets, mulligans, etc. We were there at the “shot gun start” to wave and cheer our friends for a fun golfing day. Several of our Residents were able to come enjoy the day, whether at the delicious brunch, by having a ride on the golf carts around the scenic grounds of the golf course or at the fabulous dinner and live auction in the evening.
We are most grateful to our Golf Committee and Auxiliary members, who all worked so hard to make this a success.
