FOKN Golfin' 2015
- Wyncote Golf Club, Oxford PA
Sept 15 golf tournament to benefit Upper Chichester’s Kevin Neary Event to raise funds for paralyzed man’s continued medical care
Upper Chichester resident Kevin Neary – paralyzed from a gunshot wound to the neck in 2011 – will be the guest of honor at the Second Annual Friends of Kevin Neary Golf Tournament, set for Monday, Sept. 15 at Wyncote Golf Club in Oxford, Pa. Proceeds from the event, which begins at 9:00 a.m., will benefit Kevin’s continued medical care.
“We had over 100 golfers last year and anticipate an even bigger turnout this year,” said tournament organizer Bill Burland. “We’ll cap the day with a barbecue luncheon along with a silent and live auction event – and the best part is all of the proceeds benefit Kevin.”
Joining Kevin and his friends to serve once again as Master of Ceremonies for the luncheon will be 97.5 The FANATIC’s Brian Startare. “Kevin is an inspiration to us all, and I’m delighted to be back,” Startare said. “And with great auction items on hand already, we’ll have a tremendous opportunity to raise significant funds.”
Live auction items include:
• Four club seats with a parking pass to a 2014 Philadelphia Eagles regular season game and an autographed Fletcher Cox #91 jersey.
• Two tournament passes to the 2015 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course, San Diego, Calif., and three nights at the San Diego Marriott.
• Two tournament clubhouse passes to the 2015 Tiger Woods Quicken Loans Open at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, Gainesville, Va.
• Two passes to the 2014 Army-Navy game at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium.
And many great silent auction items!
