WPCNHF’s Third Annual Iced Tees Winter Golf Outing and the Second Annual Chili Cook-Off were held at Diamond Run Golf Club in Sewickley on Saturday, March 3, 2018. Registration began at noon. As the Chili Cook-Off Contestants set up their delicious chili, the brave golfers began to gear up for the cold weather. Each golfer received a long sleeve shirt and goodie bag filled with a variety of golf and winter weather items.

The Chili Cook-Off kicked off the event. Four contestants competed for their chance to win a trophy and a $200 grand prize. Everyone had a chance to taste and vote on their favorite. It was a close call between chili chefs Adam Boyle, Scott Miller, Tony Schiavone, and Brianna Pace. Scott Miller came out ahead and maintained his reigning title as the WPCNHF Chili Cook-Off Champion. He generously donated his prize money back to the Chapter. Thanks Scott!








At 2pm the golfers teed off for the 9-hole scramble. It was a chilly 40 degree day but the sun was out and the golfers were prepared. A tee sign was displayed at each hole containing a fact about Hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease.

Third place went to Matt Pace and Dan Howard.
