This year marked another very successful event. A full complement of 120 golfers from a dozen states enjoyed the splendid Oakmont Country Club course. Brief showers early in the morning did not deter these avid golfers, but clear skies prevailed and gave way to a pleasant afternoon for everyone involved. The food, as usual, was excellent. Once again, Sue and Jennifer excelled at selling Mulligans and Raffle Tickets. Thanks to both of them. The Murrysville Economic and Community Development Corporation members appreciate the generous gifts from all the raffle and tee sign sponsors.
