Two Mary’s clas­sic raises ¤7,350 for Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port

Bray People - - News Focus -

THE TWO MARYS Golf Clas­sic, held early in the sum­mer, has be­come one of the largest par­tic­i­pat­ing char­ity golf­ing events in Wick­low and or­gan­is­ers handed a cheque for ¤7,350 last week to Kath­leen Kelle­her of Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port Cen­tre.

A record en­try of 55 teams topped off an out­stand­ing day at the 6th an­nual golf char­ity event this year.

The for­mat of the com­pe­ti­tion for this year was a four­ball scram­ble team event and the day proved to be an out­stand­ing suc­cess with a record 220 peo­ple tak­ing part.

The winning team with a su­perb score of 51.3 were Kevin Lewis, Keith Lewis, Sean Brolly and Philip Smullen. The near­est-the-pin prize was won by Ed­die Lon­er­gan and the long­est drive was won by Barry Davis.

The night time en­ter­tain­ment was pro­vided by Mike Mor­ris­sey with a guest per­for­mance by lead­ing Ir­ish Tenor, Des Wil­loughby, which proved very pop­u­lar as did the char­ity raf­fle, which fol­lowed the prize giv­ing.

Or­gan­is­ers would like to thank all their Spon­sors and es­pe­cially Grey­stones Golf Club for their con­tin­ued sup­port for this event. ‘The sup­port from our Spon­sors en­ables the event to take place and raise much needed funds for this very worth while lo­cal char­ity,’ said Ja­son Brad­shaw.

The cheque for ¤7, 350 is handed over to Kath­leen Kelle­her of the Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port Cen­tre.
