Mayor Ed Pawlowski will host his 2nd annual Allentown Police Athletic League (PAL) Golf Classic on Saturday, September 13th at the Allentown Municipal Golf Course.  Over 140 golfers are expected to participate to raise money for Allentown PAL.

Besides donating $2000, Rob Bennett of the Bennett Automotive Group has donated a Toyota Prius for the lucky golfer who gets a hole in one on the designated hole.  Prizes will also be given to the man and women who are closest to the pin.

In addition, a Chinese Auction will be held, and all the proceeds from the tournament will to go to offset PAL Bowling, Basketball, and the annual summer camp, Camp Blue Line.  The Allentown PAL strives to improve the moral, physical, educational and civic standards of youth in the City, as well as promote friendship, fairness, and goodwill among young adults, as well as stimulate a friendly and respectful relationship between the city’s youth and its police officers.

You can help to make the outing a success in several ways.  You can register as an individual or as part of a foursome, sponsor a hole, donate a prize, volunteer, or simply make a monetary donation.

For more information on participating in the PAL Golf Classic, please contact Bill Holler, Chairman of Allentown PAL, at bill3051@rcn.com, or Sgt. John Guido, Activities Director for Allentown PAL, at john.guido@allentownpa.gov.

 

19th HOLE TO REOPEN AT ALLENTOWN MUNICIPAL: JACK’S SLICE IS NEW CONCESSIONAIRE

Standard

Jack's SliceJack’s Slice was recently chosen by the City of Allentown as the official concessionaire at the Allentown Municipal Golf Course. The City announced in mid-May that Jack’s Pizza will take over the vacant restaurant at the golf course and call it “Jack’s Slice.”  Jack’s Pizza has been at the corner of Ridge Avenue and Tilghman Street since the 1980’s.

“They’ll make a great addition to the Golf Course,” said Mayor Pawlowski.  “They’ve been an institution on Tilghman Street for decades, and it is always a welcome sight to see a local business expand to another location.”

The eatery beat out six other proposals and is currently constructing several upgrades to the building including adding another bar, several High-Definition televisions, and new outdoor patio furniture.  Additionally, a walk-in basement cooler for specialty beers, and a golf cart food service to cover all areas of the course will be added as well.

The restaurant will open 30 minutes before the first tee time during the golf season, as well as in the months of November, December, January, and February.  The lease will run until December 31, 2015, with an option for an extension of two additional two-year terms.  The facility will be open to the public as soon as the renovations are complete.
