Angels’ Place Golf and Tennis Classic
The 22nd annual Golf Fore Life attracted 240 golfers and 30 tennis players to Pine Lake Country Club where they were joined for cocktails and dinner by more supporters of Angels’ Place. Warm camaraderie reigns at this event for which Frank Jonna, Peter Treboldi, Ted Pearse, Dale Prentice, Bob Sparks, and Duke Scrafano provided leadership. The latter, who chaired the event for the first 20 years and was serving as honorary chair, was razed good naturedly when he bragged that it had never been rained out and then mixed up some committee names. “English is Duke’s second language,” teased Jonna, who got his brother John to donate a Bird & Bread restaurant wine tasting party for 12 to the mini-auction that raised $5,000. The sporting event plus a raffle ($36,000) raised more than $218,000. And board chair Schuyler Hamill also thanked Feldman Automotive for its sales-based project that would raise nearly $40,000 for AP, which gives lifetime care to developmentally disabled persons.
