Chris Picini, President of the Patchogue Kiwanis Club (from left) presents members of the Southampton Kiwanis golf team with a plaque and check for $500 payable to the Southampton Kiwanis as the winning team of the 2010 Patchogue Kiwanis Annual Golf Classic. Winning Southampton team members here are Justin McCarthy, Treasurer; Jim McMahon, Secretary; Ed Sorenson team member and not shown here, Steve Fellingham.
The Tri Club challenge was made to Lions, Rotary and Kiwanis clubs of eastern Long Island who all participated in the event. The tournament raised funds to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, and Child Service activities of the club. Culminating a perfect weather day, the tournament raised over $13,000 with over 80 golfers in attendance. Co-Chairmen Lawless and Picini doubled the proceeds from the previous year and increased attendance by 50%, a stellar accomplishment in a difficult economy. Support by non golfing member volunteers help contribute to the success of the event.
