The 23rd annual PAL Golf Classic was held at the scenic Manufacturers’ Golf and Country Club on September 8, 2014. The sold-out fundraiser featured the highest guest attendance in the event’s history. The excitement around the event stemmed from the beautiful weather, a resurgence of new sponsors in addition to the dedicated donor base who have attended for many years, new contests, and the importance of supporting PAL’s mission of “Cops Helping Kids”.
Event Chairs Michael Innocenzo of PECO and Scott Secor of Tasty Baking Company led a strong and hardworking committee to achieve a record-breaking goal by raising $168,000 for PAL! Special thanks to PAL’s Dinner Sponsor, Ron Krancer and Family, Lunch Sponsor Asplundh Tree Expert Company, and Gold Sponsors, including ABM, AlliedBarton Security Services, Frigidaire/Electrolux Major Appliances, and PECO.
Awards were presented to players in many competitive categories, including the announcement of the winning foursome from Henkels & McCoy, Inc. The final lucky winner, Board member Matthew Elkes of Almo, was named as the Get on the Green winner, a new contest that added a lot of buzz to the day. While many players walked away winners that night, it’s safe to say the true winners were the thousands of children PAL serves each and every day throughout the Philadelphia region who benefited from the sponsors’ generosity.
