The 11th Annual Community Partner’s Classic Golf Tournament (CPC) on June 16, 2017 was a success! Whenever rains rears its head in the forecast leading up to the CPC, the planning committee—made of the members from the three participating organizations, Northwestern Counseling & Support Services; Northwestern Medical Center; United Way of Northwest Vermont—takes a collective deep breath. Though it rained through the morning and the wind blew madly, the course was in excellent condition. The weather didn’t put a damper on the event; the golfers were troopers! Decked out in rain coats, ponchos, and even galoshes, they took to the course, demonstrating that having fun is state of mind. As the raindrops fell outside of the clubhouse mid-morning, Emerson Lynn, editor at The Messenger, smiled widely and said, “It’s all about the story!” It would be safe to say this tournament will be remembered.
The afternoon flight experienced some more pleasant weather with the sun making a few cameos. Jack Hungerford, golfer extraordinaire, got a hole-in-one! He won a year’s membership at the Champlain Country Club, where the tournament is held, and the prestige of sinking the very first hole-in-one in the tournament’s history!
The golf tournament is a fun event for experienced golfers and novices alike. The three participating organizations are so grateful for the funds generated by the event and are always blown away by the generosity of the community.
Thank you immensely to our sponsors. It is due to your generosity that this event is such a success.
