Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scene & Be Seen -

Friends and sup­port­ers of the Crohn’s & Col­i­tis Foun­da­tion of Amer­ica’s (CCFA) Florida Chap­ter are ex­cited for the an­nual “Golf Clas­sic.”

The event, set for Oct. 11, will honor Joan Geduld, a long­time sup­porter of CCFA and the golf tour­na­ment, who died last year.

The17th an­nual tour­na­ment, chaired by Ira Berke and Michael Fein­berg, will be held on the 27-hole Joe Lee de­signed cham­pi­onship course at De­laire Coun­try Club in Del­ray Beach. With skill­fully man­i­cured greens and rolling fair­ways, play­ers of all lev­els will en­joy play­ing through stands of ma­jes­tic oaks, sweep­ing wa­ter fea­tures and palms along the course.

Regis­tra­tion will be­gin at 11 a.m., and par­tic­i­pants can en­joy a gourmet lunch and re­fresh­ments prior to the 12:30 p.m. shot­gun start. Af­ter­ward, there will be a post-tour­na­ment cock­tail re­cep­tion with a full din­ner, awards cer­e­mony, hand-rolled cigars and a silent auc­tion.

“The ‘CCFA Golf Clas­sic’ is truly a day of fun,” said Paula Pren­der­gast, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Crohn’s & Col­i­tis Foun­da­tion of Amer­ica’s Florida Chap­ter. “This event raises funds for the vi­tal pro­grams and ser­vices that CCFA pro­vides to the more than 1.4 mil­lion Amer­i­cans liv­ing with th­ese de­bil­i­tat­ing dis­eases. In Florida alone there are more than 94,000 in­di­vid­u­als af­fected by the dis­eases and the num­ber of chil­dren di­ag­nosed is one the rise.”
