After a full brunch sponsored by A&T Healthcare it was time to tee off on the golf course. A good time was had by all with food provided by Outback Steakhouse, beer by Heineken and the hole-in-one prize (a hard to miss yellow car) provided by Curry Automotive. Celebrities such as Alan Kalter and Ralph Branca also came out to help support the cause.
