2019 Event Summary

You were there, weren’t you?

The weather was overcast with glimpses of sun; a little humid; light breeze; and it DID NOT RAIN!  Play moved right along and everyone was in the clubhouse by 3:30 – 4:00 PM.  It was a good day for golf!

At the conclusion of the Banquet meal, Rick reminded us of why we were all there (to raise money for scholarships to worthy individuals pursing a career in nursing) and of the organization’s namesake, Vera Arterburn.  He introduced Matt Barrett, President VAMSF; Dennis Cleary, Board Member VAMSF; and John Horstman, Board Member VAMSF  Richard C. Brown is now the Treasurer of VAMSF.  Then, on to the awards!

Our first place team this year was the Greg Czapiga’s group with a 63 followed by Joel Kirchick’s group, also with a 63.  It took a tiebreaker to determine who was first!  Longest male drive on the 12th Hole was Chris Lombardo; longest female drive on the 12th hole was Abby Jacobs.

Ryan Breilmann came heartbreakingly close to a hole-in-one on the 9th Hole ($ 5,000 prize hole).  Our 9th Hole 50/50 Raffle Winner was Chris Lombardo who took home a sizeable prize.  The General Raffle draws were for golfing and non-golfing prizes all of which were exceptional.  Thank you to the many participants who brought prizes for the Raffle table.

Our Major Sponsors this year were:

Banquet – Procare LTC Pharmacy of Connecticut
Lunch-at-the-Gazebo – Colonial Health and Rehabilitation of Plainfield
Vera Arterburn Memorial Scholarship Fund – Athena Health Care Systems
Morning Coffee – Murtha Cullina LLP
