Little Sisters of the Poor to Honor Mrs. Joan Blaker and the late Mr. Fenton Blaker at their Ninth Annual Golf Tournament and Spirited Art Party.
Please join us as we honor Mrs. Joan Blaker and the late Mr. Fenton Blaker at our ninth annual golf tournament Saturday, June 13, at the Scranton Municipal Golf Course, Lake Ariel. In addition to this major fundraiser, we will also honor the Blakers at a Spirited Art party at 6 p.m. Friday, June 5 at Holy Family Residence, 2500 Adams Ave., Scranton.
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 golf 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.
The Spirited Art party, which is a very popular program for creative and non-creative types, provides individuals and friends an opportunity to create paintings while sampling beverages and snacks such as wine and cheese. It will also provide non-golfers with an opportunity to support the Little Sisters’ fundraising efforts and honor the Blaker family. The cost is $35 per person and includes an instructor led class, paints, smocks, brushes, easels and canvases. The Little Sisters will also provide a snack and non-alcoholic beverages. Attendees are welcome to bring their own wine and snacks as well.
To make a reservation or provide a contribution for either fundraiser, please contact Mrs. Jackie Galvin, M.S., director of development and communications, at (570) 343-4065 ext. 3144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
