Before we get to some truly amazing golf tournament auction items donated by some generous individuals, we wanted to take a moment to update you on one of the big recent outings for Kevin: his older brother Joe’s wedding to Olivia Cotton over Memorial Day weekend at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.
The wedding was a great time and took place in a stunning venue. Kevin shared co-best man duties with his brother Chris, and they were both thrilled to welcome their new sister Olivia into the Neary family.
Some great photos are below — courtesy of Laura Neary — featuring the whole Neary clan (including Lindsey and Kathy) as well as a cameo by Ben Franklin himself with the newlyweds.
Some amazing auction items – you’ll want to check these out!
As the end of June nears, an update on the September 12 golf tournament.
If you already have your tickets, thank you. Read on.
(If not, there is no time like the present…)
What’s new for the big day?
Let’s look at a few of the items we have in mind for our live auction:
–Basketball Broadcast with ESPN Bracketologist and Saint Joseph’s University Broadcaster Joe Lunardi
Many of you know that March means Madness and the nation hangs on every word coming out of the College basketball world. The lucky high bidder will be vying for a unique opportunity to spend some quality time with the guru of NCAA Basketball Selection Sunday, ESPN’s Bracketologist Joe Lunardi. The package includes a game ticket to a mutually agreeable Saint Joseph’s University home basketball game during the 2016-17 season, the opportunity to participate/observe the pregame preparation in anticipation of a Saint Joseph’s University Hawks basketball broadcast, a prime seat adjacent to or on press row (depending on game) and one on one time with the Bracketologist himself. Joe will be broadcasting the Hawks game and you will be right in the middle of the action! Joe is known across the sports world as the “go to guy” for who’s in and who’s out for the Big Dance. This is a unique opportunity for any college basketball fan. There may be a surprise addition or two depending on the game and the time of year but you will have to bid and win to find out!
–Golf threesome at the exclusive MERION Golf Club, host of the 2013 U.S. Open. Mutually agreeable dates to be arranged.
–Golf threesome at the exclusive PLAINFIELD Country Club, home of the 2015 Barclays. Mutually agreeable dates to be arranged. (This item swooped up in advance by an interested bidder — and the donor offered a second threesome for our September tourney!)
–Philadelphia Eagles package
Once again, the Philadelphia Eagles will donate a package including game tickets, pregame field passes, parking and a jersey. It is ALWAYS a crowd favorite, for good reason!
These are some ONCE IN A LIFETIME events! Consider golfing, then doing your holiday shopping a little early this year!
Is that all that is new? Of course not!
We have a one week Orlando (Disney) condo stay for mutually agreeable dates….all you need to bring is your suntan lotion and your swim towels.
Like watching golf somewhere warm in the winter? We have passes to both:
Like other sports, too? The Phillies are working on something for us, and the Wilmington Blue Rocks will donate a first pitch package. And our hosts at Wyncote will donate a foursome!
Like hearing about sports? Bid on the chance to sit in with Mike and Ike!
Is that all we will have? Of course not; there will be so much more! Some exciting items are in the pipeline…
We will post a draft program here just prior to the tournament, and hoped this sneak peek would be of interest.
Tickets are available here!
