Fam­ily ar­ranges golf tour­na­ment in loving mem­ory of Jack Hayes

Bray People - - Presentation College Bray Debs Ball -

THE LATE Jack Hayes from Scott Park was re­mem­bered last Fri­day with a golf tour­na­ment held in Bray Golf Club, or­gan­ised by his fam­ily.

Thirty teams of four each took part in the sec­ond an­nual Jack Hayes Memo­rial Tro­phy to raise money for chil­dren’s on­col­ogy in Crum­lin.

They raised ¤7,500, an in­crease on last year when they pre­sented a cheque for ¤5,000 to the hospi­tal.

Jack’s wife Ave­line and their 11 chil­dren chose the char­ity to sup­port as they lost him to leukemia and also be­cause he had 18 grand­chil­dren.

Ave­line pre­sented the prizes af­ter a great day of golf, with their neigh­bour Ge­orge Lee and his team com­ing in first on the day. There were also seven teams from the Ve­vay Inn there on the day, Jack hav­ing been a mem­ber of the Ve­vay Inn Golf So­ci­ety.

There was then a de­li­cious meal and mu­sic from Buddy Boland, who kept every­one danc­ing un­til late. The Hayes fam­ily ex­pressed their sin­cere thanks to every­one who took part and any­one who do­nated a spot prize for the event.

The winning team are pre­sented with the cup, Dan Walsh, Ge­orge Lee, Ave­line Hayes, Terry Smith, Paul Hayes and Brian Hayes.
