“Every year we get a great turnout for this tournament,” says Local 175 President Shawn Haggerty. “We’ve got dedicated supporters who come out every year. I sincerely thank them and our very generous sponsors for all their help raising money for the Leukemia Fund.”Golfers enjoyed lunch to start off their day and a great dinner following the 18-holes of golf. Prizes were awarded for men’s and women’s longest drives and closest to the pin. Everyone also got a chance to participate in a putting green contest, 50/50 draw and draw prize raffles featuring donated prizes – with all proceeds going to the LLS.
