On Friday, May 17th, 2013 golfers were invited to support the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley by participating in their Charity Golf Classic presented by Dunkin’ Donuts at Amherst Country Club. Thanks to Dunkin’ Donuts, Ciardelli Fuel Company, JP Pest Services, sponsors, supporters, volunteers and golfers, the tournament was a huge success with proceeds exceeding $27,000.
“We wanted this year’s tournament to be unique and exciting and based on the feedback from our golfers, we achieved that!” said Donna Rosenstock, Development Director for the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley.
New this year, the tournament offered dinner and a comedy show at the conclusion of the event. The event also featured a Win a Jeep contest provided by Contemporary Chrysler Dodge Jeep, many raffles, and a live auction with items ranging from golfing at a premier private golf course to tickets to Red Sox games with limo service.
“It was nice to bring the golfers, supporters, staff and volunteers together through laughter and amazing food! We could not ask for a better host in Amherst Country Club who welcomed our new format. The funds raised will have a direct impact on the lives of children at the club and in the community. We want to thank everyone who made our tournament such a success and we’re excited to improve upon our event next spring!” stated Susan Taylor, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley.
