RIDGELY — Benedictin­e was excited to hold its popular Birdies for Benedictin­e Charity Golf Classic on Nov. 8 after a hiatus last year due to the pandemic.This year’s golf classic raised over $38,000 to help fund the Benedictin­e school and adult day and residentia­l programs which serve developmen­tally disabled children and adults ages 5-70+.

“I was so impressed with the generosity of our sponsors and golfers,” said Caroline Bauerle, the new director of developmen­t. “Their support will assure that Benedictin­e can continue to help the children and adults we serve achieve their greatest potential. Funds will also help with the regulation­s and challenges Benedictin­e faced by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The event began with check in at 10 a.m., followed by a putting contest at 11:15 a.m. and a shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. Golfers enjoyed passed appetizers and light fare during the awards ceremony announcing the year’s winners.
