Our First Ever Iced Tees Winter Golf Outing was held at Diamond Run Golf Club in Sewickley, PA on February 20th, 2016. Golfers arrived at Diamond Run at 9am and enjoyed an assortment of delicious little donuts donated by Peace, Love, and Little Donuts of Wexford. Each golfer received a t-shirt and goodie bag filled with an assortment of golf and winter weather items. Despite being prepared for the snow, at 60 degrees the day turned out to be warm and beautiful.
At 10am the golfers teed off for the 9 hole scramble. Mikey and Big Bob from the Kiss Morning Freak Show joined in on the fun by riding around the course on a golf cart and checking in on the golfers as they made their way across the course. A tee sign was displayed at each hole containing a fact about Hemophilia and vonWillebrands Disease.
A delicious soup and sandwich buffet was held immediately following the outing. A silent auction containing a wide range of Pittsburgh sports memorabilia and golf items was also held. Adam Morrison of Diamond Run hosted the awards and awards were given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams as well as the closest to the pin, longest putt, and longest drive. Kiss 96.1 DJ, Tall Cathy, joined us to present the winners of the auction items as well as thank all of our sponsors.
We are extremely grateful for all the golfers who participated as well as the donations we received from our Chapter members, our partner organizations, and other donors who offered their support. We are excited to report that over $30,000 was raised from this event! 100% of this money will stay local to support the member’s of the Western PA Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation.
WPCNHF would like to thank all who participated in the event, sponsored the event, donated items, and all who volunteered their time to help make the event a success! We can’t wait to see you all next year at the Second Annual Iced Tees Golf Outing!
