Ed Shannon, golf committee chairperson, said the event will have fine food and spirits, a hole-in-one car contest, closest to the hole and longest drive competitions, a complimentary individual gift, awards and door prizes, plus appearances by local area sports celebrities.

“Once again this year, we are anticipating a sellout, so I want to encourage all interested golfers to register early,” Shannon said.

Included are Special Equestrians, A Woman’s Place, Friends of the Lower Southampton Library, Libertae, Neshaminy Activities Center, Network of Victims Assistance (NOVA), Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Playwicki Farm Foundation, Lower Southampton Athletic Association, Sean/Me and the Sunshine Foundation, among others.

Payroll Service Solutions is the prime sponsor for this year’s outing, while Penn Medicine is the honorary sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are available to area businesses and private individuals ranging from $100 for an individual hole sponsorship to $1,500 for the cart sponsorship.

Cost for individual golfers is $200 and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, buffet lunch, awards dinner, and snacks and refreshments on the course. Checks should be made payable to the FBA and mailed to Tracy Freels, 538 E. Myrtle Ave., Trevose, PA 19053.
