On Saturday, July 28 Literacy Volunteers held its first “READ” the Green Golf Tournament at Craig Wood Golf Course in Lake Placid. Randy Quayle’s team from Lake Placid took first place, followed by Pete Towns’ team from Mineville. Marci Heery’s team from Saranac Lake came in third.
Literacy Volunteers would like to thank the following local businesses that sponsored a hole in the amount of $100: Grand Union, Lakeside Plumbing & Heating, Lockrows, Malone Office Products, Mirror Lake Inn, Mt. View Indian Lake Association, Pat Ida, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union, Ticonderoga International Paper Mill, and Upstate Agency Insurance. We would also like to thank those who donated prizes for first, second, third and closest to the pin. They are Craig Wood Golf Course, Crowe Plaza Resort & Club, Malone Golf Course, Tupper Lake Golf Course, and Whiteface Club & Resort.
Last but not least, we would like to thank James Wasson Jr, PGA Professional at Craig Wood Golf Course, for helping us put together our first golf tournament. This fundraiser was very successful and all proceeds will benefit Literacy Volunteers’ Adult Literacy programs. We look forward to next year’s event!
