The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club’s 10th annual Charity Golf Outing was held June 7 at The Peninsula on The Indian River Bay.
Predicted showers held off for a few sprinkles as the last foursome was finishing their hole. This signature event is the club’s main fund-raising function, where all proceeds are used to support Rotary’s global polio eradication initiative; Sussex County Habitat for Humanity; Oak Orchard Boys and Girls Club; Long Neck area youth programs and organizations; and the greater Long Neck community with projects and programs to foster growth and improve quality of life.
This year’s tournament netted about $24,000 from its event sponsors and 116 golfers.
The tournament included a $5,000 putting contest sponsored by Eric Blondin of State Farm Insurance. Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club incoming President John Berner won the initial $180 putting prize but failed by a fraction of an inch on the putt for the $5,000. The first-place team, with a score of 57 for the scramble-style tournament, included Steve Grossman/Chris Mancini, Austin Auen, Dan Vanda and Lisa Grossman. This team represented Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club and also won the Traveling Trophy for the No. 1 Rotary Team.
On-course competitions included four holes-in-one sponsored by Terry Megee of Megee Motors, with no winners this year. The day was capped by a gourmet dinner at the Peninsula. Next year’s tournament is scheduled for June 11, 2020.
The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club at 7:30 am on Tuesdays for breakfast at the Ocean Grill II, 26089 Long Neck Road, Millsboro.
