The Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic, raising money and awareness for cancer research and prevention, celebrated its 20th Anniversary with their most successful fundraiser ever. The popular charity tournament, hosted by renown sports talk show host and author Ann Liguori, was held at Atlantic Golf Club in Bridgehampton, N.Y., on Monday, June 4 and raised over $250,000!
The tourney was a sell-out for the 20th straight year. And to add to the festivities, the U.S. Open trophy, which will be hoisted by the U.S. Open champion next week, was at the charity tourney for the entire day so that golfers could get their photos with it.
NHL Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr, winner of five Stanley Cups as the goalie for the Edmonton Oilers in the eighties, and avid golfer, was recognized with the Sports Honoree Award. Daniel Kindbergh of Brookfield Properties was named the Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic Business Honoree recipient. Dennis Suskind, the President of Atlantic Golf Club, and ALF Charity Golf Classic committee member, Jerry Williams, were honored with the Volunteer Awards. TV/Hollywood Actor Gary Valentine, former NY Yankees catcher Rick Cerone, former NY Jets Running Back John Nitti, radio/tv/film personality Bo Dietland former WNBC News anchor Jane Hanson joined in the festivities.
