The Little Sisters of the Poor will honor the late Mr. Joseph N. Connor at their eighth annual golf tournament Saturday, June 14 at the Scranton Municipal Golf Course, Lake Ariel. Mr. Connor, who is the father of diocesan priest Father Charles Connor and was a prominent businessman in Scranton, was a very good friend of the Little Sisters.
Registration for the tournament begins at noon with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The format is captain and crew. Singles will be placed on a team. The cost is $100 per golfer which includes green fees, use of a cart, an official tournament shirt, a gift bag, a pre-tournament refreshment reception, a light meal during the tournament, and a post-tournament dinner at the course clubhouse. Golfers will also have a chance to win prizes based on their performance in the tournament including a new car courtesy of Matt Burne Honda, Scranton.
Several types of golf and sponsorship packages, which are great advertising vehicles, are also available including hole signs for $100 and sponsorships of $250, $500, $750, and $1,000. There will also be a grand raffle of the Sisters’ famous gift baskets as well as prizes valued at over $100.
