Mayor Ed Pawlowski presided over his 8th Annual Charity Golf Classic and Dinner recently, where a record $18,132 was raised to benefit Lehigh Valley Active Life, formerly the Lehigh County Senior Center. The outing was held once again at the Allentown Municipal Golf Course, and to date, $118,841 has been raised for various charities in and around Allentown.
“I’d like to thank everyone who participated this year and donated to Lehigh Valley Active Life,” said the Mayor. “It was just a great day for a round of golf for a worthy cause. The good news is I have a whole year to work on my slice before next year’s Classic.”
This year, 120 golfers participated in the event, with the Mayor’s Cup going to the City Center Lehigh Valley Investment Corporation foursome of Gregg Potter, Tom Arnold, Ed Beishine, and Jim McFadden. The Lehigh Valley Educators Credit Union team of Rick Kern, Chris Schmidt, Woody Maxon, and Dave Creveling took 2nd place, while the Embassy Bank group of Paul Frank, Bryan Yarnell, Josh Agentis, and Brian Sabol took 3rd place. The Longest Drive awards went to Candida Affa for the women, and Carl Greener for the men. Closest to the pin awards went to Holly Thomas, Austin Bleam, Tom Arnold and John Andrulevich.
