There are two very exciting events this July benefiting Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley. Don’t miss these family-fun events that everyone wants to join: the Philadelphia and Vicinity Club Managers’ Golf Classic and the Wear Your Wish River Run.
History Of The Event
The first six tournaments were held at six local golf clubs in South Jersey. The event had amazing turnout, but they felt they could do better. So they decided to relocate the event to the Philadelphia suburbs. The General Manager Paul Mauer volunteered the use of the nationally recognized Stonewall Golf Links. Managers, sponsors and other charity guests were so thrilled to play at the course that it soon because a tremendous success. The net proceeds continue to exceed their expectations raising more than $25,000 annually. To date this event has donated almost $400,000, which equals approximately 60 wishes.
This fantastic event will be Monday July 16, 2016 at the Stonewall Golf Links. Registration and the brunch start at 8:30 a.m., with the classic shotgun start and 10:30 a.m. Once the round of golf is done there will be a wish reception and auction at 3:30 p.m. Don’t wait any longer and register today!
