Friends of Kevin Neary – Sixth Annual Golf Tournament

September 10, 2018

Thanks to everyone who is attending this years’ golf tournament. Kevin and the Neary family appreciate everyone’s continued support and hope that this years’ event is a good one for all the golfers.

As usual, golf registration is from 7:00AM to 8:30 AM.

Continental breakfast will be served, and the Dunkin Donuts Cruise Van will be in the parking lot.

Kickoff time for the golfers is 8:30 and, as there are fewer golfers, the day should progress more quickly than in past years.

Dixon Golf will be at the second tee with their closest to the hole event.

The usual prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place finishers as well as the longest drive and closest to the pin.

The day will conclude with lunch at the clubhouse at approximately 1:00 to 1:30 PM.

This year’s event features fewer silent and live bidding items; what we miss in quantity, we make up in quality!

We plan on having a beef and beer in April where many of the items available in the past will be offered. We hope to see you in April.

The following items will be available this year.

Thanks to all the volunteers that have solicited gifts, contributed time, and generally always been there for Kevin. My apologies to anyone I have missed. Thanks also goes out to Joseph(JP) and Olivia Neary, as well as Chris and Lindsey Neary who have managed so much of the communication work for the event and the website.

Finally, to all of the golfers, thank you for your support for the past six years. Many of you have been here from the beginning and without you we would have been hard pressed to maintain Kevin living at home. Kevin and I and the entire Neary family can not begin to express our gratitude for your support.
