Gray skies no handicap for TSF’s Golf Tournament
The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield, Inc. (TSF) recently held its 37th Annual Golf Tournament at Bear Hill Golf Club in Stoneham. Despite gray skies and rainy and wet conditions, an intrepid group of golfers were undeterred and enjoyed the day on the links and supporting TSF.
The golfers were provided the ground rules for the scramble format by Bear Hill Pro Toby Ahern. Following the tournament, the participants enjoyed a buffet dinner, fundraising raffle, and silent auction with a variety of prizes including restaurant gift certificates, Bruins tickets, lottery tickets, gift baskets, and more.
Trophies and cash prizes were awarded to the First, Second, and Third Place teams by TSF President Kathy Scanlon and Vice President T.J. White.
