The golf tournament proceeds are an essential part of the MFPC annual budget and this year we exceeded the estimated profit for this event.

“Our Office Manager Sue McCarthy makes planning and running this important event look easy,” said Executive Director Patrick Strauch, “but she deserves enormous credit for the hard work she puts into tournament.”

MFPC is very fortunate that we have so many members who continue their sponsorships and make this event successful.

The MFPC staff would like to thank the following people who helped with this tournament.  Brian Flewelling of Key Bank in soliciting sponsorships; Peter Triandafillou selling raffle tickets; Kelly Cotiaux for spotting the Hole ’N’ One; Hero’s Sports Grill for the delicious BBQ and, of course, Brian Enman, the course’s head PGA golf professional, and his crew for helping out making the tournament run so smoothly.
