Golf scramble helps make difference

To the editor:

The Women’s Civic Chamber of Saranac Lake hosted a golf scramble on Saturday, Aug. 28. Forty golfers participated in the event hosted at the Saranac Lake Golf Club. Funds raised through the golf scramble benefit the Women’s Civic Chamber of Saranac Lake in their support of the greater Saranac Lake community through activities, events and donations.

The event was a great success. A barbecue lunch was served and prizes were awarded. The golfers who participated had the opportunity to meet and golf with Team USA athletes. Bobsledders Kyle Wilcox, Carlo Valdes, Boone Niederhofer and Sam Moeller, luge slider Emily Sweeney and biathlete Chloe Levins all spent time on the course with our local golfers.

Congratulations to the golf scramble winners. The top team, with a score of 32, consisted of Larry Bourey, Jay Courcelle, Tanner Courcelle and Bill Vaughn. Second place was tied with a score of 34. The second place teams were Ellen Cerminara, Chuck Cerminara, Christi Chambers, and Jeff Chambers tied with Tom Browne, Gary Caudie, David Christensen and Cindy Dady.

The Women’s Civic Chamber wishes to thank our sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible: Saranac Lake Golf Course, Bye Bye Black Fly, Lake Placid Golf Club, Tail O’ the Pup BBQ, Adirondack Lakes and Trails Outfitters, Village Mercantile, Blue Line Brewery, Hex and Hop Brewing, the Belvedere Restaurant, La Bella Ristorante, Placid Boatworks, Adirondack Wine and Liquor, Malone Golf Club and individual members of the Women’s Civic Chamber.

We are thankful to live in a generous and fun-loving community and look forward to next year’s golf scramble!
