10th Annual Charity Golf Classic Highlights

October 16, 2019

 

We had a spectacular day at Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club for the 10th Annual Latham Centers Charity Golf Classic honoring Christine B. Thomas, M.D. One hundred golfers played in the tournament and we welcomed more than 140 guests to the banquet dinner in the Linx Pavilion. A wine pull and an exciting cash raffle were new additions to this year’s event. The lucky winner of the cash raffle split the $15,000 pot with Latham Centers taking home a cash prize of $7,500! Over $100,000 was raised to support the diverse programs serving children and adults who call Latham Centers home.

Huge thanks and congratulations to Anne Tuckerman of Complete Payroll Solutions who chaired this year’s Golf Classic Planning Committee. We would also like to thank committee members: Amanda Bebrin, Lee Chamberlain, Jo-Ellen Erickson, Christine Gillstrom-Burgess, Sabrina Kane, Jack Kelly, Brittni Kliment, Bradford Malo, and Leslie Watt. This year’s committee, under Anne Tuckerman’s leadership brought incredible enthusiasm and energy to the event. We are so grateful for the gifts of their time and creativity.

The tournament was staffed by: Heather Kelsey, Director of Development, Diana Morgan, Development Associate, and Sheri Peterson, Executive Assistant to the President and CEO.

Dr. Christine Thomas, Latham parent and Vice-chair of Latham Centers’ Board of Directors was honored for her years of dedication and service to Latham Centers. She was joined at dinner by her daughter Evie, a graduate of Latham School and now a Latham Adult Resident, and all four of Evie’s housemates along with their House Manager, Cathy Ebel. In upcoming blog posts highlighting moments from the Golf Classic, we will share excerpts from Dr. Thomas’ remarks recounting her introduction to Latham over fifteen years ago when Evie was nine-years old. We will also thank our sponsors and share some of the great photos and video footage we captured at this year’s tournament and dinner.
