  • SHARE THE LOVE GOLF - February 9

     Pantry  PantryWinners

    40 of our members participated in this special chapter event benefiting the Food Pantry of Broward at the Palm Aire Oaks Golf Course. More than $800 in cash and a lot of food packages were raised for this very worthy charity. Karen Hord and Lale Divringi took a share of the 50-50 prize. The team of Madeliene Abling, Michelle Florea, Elsie Guzman and Vivian Krasner took first place in the competition and promptly donated their proceeds to the Food Pantry of Broward.


    Our chapter was well represented with 16 members participating in this multi-chapter Match Play Competition held at Clewiston Golf Course. The event, organized by  LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Southwest Florida Chapter  was also attended by Palm Beach, Miami, Treasure Coast, and Manatee chapters in addition to our own. Congratulations to our member Nancy Board who won the longest drive contest, and to Kathy Nalven who took a share of the 50-50 prize money. This year was the first time participation for our chapter and we hope to make it a yearly event.
