This year’s golf tournament took place at Grasslands Golf & Country Club in Lakeland…
Message from Bernita Gigowski, Golf Committee Chair
Thank you to our 26 tournament sponsors with J Burns Pizza being the main sponsor, 25 flag stick sponsors and many tee box sponsors. Our tournament was at capacity with 138 players registering for the event. It was a perfect day and we received nothing but positive feedback from every player! Many of them said they will definitely play in next year’s tournament on December 14th. The golf committee members did a phenomenal job, with special recognition to Suzanne Trueblood for pouring her heart and soul into making this a very special, memorable, and successful tournament! Kudos to her, because I never could have done this without her!
Doug McCormick, Wendy Doolan, Brett Hitchcock, Anthony Guargliardo who graciously donated their winnings to the Noah’s Ark team.
The tournament was opened by Lakeland Mayor, Bill Mutz and Noah’s Angels choir sang the national anthem. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!!
Our residents, volunteers and staff helped out with directions, snacks & beverages at each of the holes and arranging the many raffle and silent auction prizes.

Once again, a HUGE THANK YOU to all who took part in the tournament or donated items for the event and of course all of the volunteers who did a fantastic job of planning and executing the event and gave so much of their time and energy to support Noah’s Ark.
