2018 Charity Golf Outing
The Club's 12th annual Charity Golf Outing will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at
1418 Woodside Road in Lower Makefield, PA.
This event's principal beneficiary will be the Drew's Hope Research Foundation.
whose funds support research into treatments and cures for and create greater awareness of Batten Disease a very rare degenerative neurologic disease occurring in an estimate 2 to 4 of every 100,000 live births for which there is no cure at this time and is always fatal!
Named by Katie and Tony Ferrandino in honor and memory of their son Drew was born on February 1, 2002.
Before his diagnosis of the Late Infantile NCL form of Batten Disease at age 5,
Drew, like most boys his age, loved trains, baseball, swimming, his brother, Gavin, and his dog, Bella. In the months prior to his diagnosis, Drew went from being a sweet and active boy who could run, jump and play to a child needing constant care.
Sadly, Drew passed away on September 30, 2014 at the age of just 12!
The golf tournament for both men and women will be an 18-hole scramble format event with longest drive, closest-to-the-pin on the par 3s, and other skill challenges … preceded by a buffet luncheon and followed by an open-bar happy hour complete with hot hors d’oeuvres, raffles, a silent auction, dinner and an awards ceremony. Dinner-only tickets are also available.
You can help us help Drew's Hope in finding a cure for this terrible disease by registering and playing in the outing or by becoming a sponsor, taking an ad in the event program, or providing gift certificates for goods or services which can become part of the Silent Auction.
