The Second Annual Iced Tees Winter Golf Outing and the First Annual WPCNHF Chili Cook-Off were held at Diamond Run Golf Club in Sewickley on Saturday, February 25. Golfers arrived at Diamond Run at 9am and enjoyed an assortment of delicious donuts donated by Peace Love and Little Donuts of Wexford. Each golfer received a t-shirt and goodie bag filled with a variety of golf and winter weather items.

At 10am the golfers teed off for the 9-hole scramble. Despite being prepared for rain and snow, the rain cleared by the time the golfers teed off and the weather remained in the high to mid-50s. A tee sign was displayed at each hole containing a fact about Hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease.

The Chili Cook-Off was held immediately following the golf outing. Four contestants competed for their chance to win a trophy and a $100 grand prize. Everyone had a chance to taste and vote on their favorite. It was a close call between Michelle Logreco’s Michelle’s Chili, Bill Shufesky’s Billium’s Chili,  Adam Boyle’s Sweet and Spicy Bourbon Chili, and Scott Miller’s Sandy’s Downhome Chili. Scott Miller came out ahead to become the 2017 WPCNHF Chili Cook-Off Champion and donated his prize money back to the Chapter. Thanks Scott!

Kiss 96.1’s DJ, Tall Cathy, joined us to present the awards to the winners of the golf outing. Longest Drive went to Shelly Lyons and Pat Bair. Closest to the Pin went to Bill Shufesky, Matt Pace, and Pat Bair. Third place went to Melissa Dillon, Nancy Rocco, Cindy Yingling, and Gretchen Moran. Second place went to Scott Miller, Anthony Pirrello, John Onorato, and Bill Shufesky.  First place went to Nathan Rost, Marcus Morelli, Neil Giles, and Pat Bair.

WPCNHF would like to thank everyone who participated in the event, sponsored the event, donated items, and volunteered their time to help make the event a success! We are excited to report that over $21,000 was raised from this event!  100% of this money will stay local to support the members of the Western PA Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation.  We can’t wait to see you all next year at the Third Annual Iced Tees Golf Outing!
