The Fourth Annual Pavilion Golf Society (PGS) was marked by friends, fairways, food, family, and the many fans of honoree Carol Feuerman. More than 80 golfers were in full swing at Alaqua Country Club on Sunday, May 15, for a morning round of golf to raise funds for the Jewish Pavilion and The Orlando Senior Help Desk. The Pavilion past president was celebrated by three generations of family members, from her mother, Oakmonte Village resident Shirley Meltzer, to her five adult children and their spouses, who had traveled from near and far, to her toddling 1½-year-old grandson, Jack. Thanks to Feuerman's extensive community involvement, a record number of guests enjoyed the PGS, with an additional 27 non-golfers joining in for lunch.

Pavilion Golf Society co-chairmen Ken Davis and Eli Bercovici thanked attendees for "being the ace-in-the-hole for the senior community."

Davis stated, "Our fourth annual event was way above par thanks to our generous sponsors, our dedicated volunteers, and the hard-working Pavilion staff. The monies raised by the PGS will help increase the operational hours of Orlando's Senior Help Desk, ensuring access to information and resources for all issues related to aging, for the Jewish community, and seniors of all faiths and backrounds."

Honors were given at a luncheon following the tournament. Elise Schilowitz, president of the Board of the Jewish Pavilion, effusively thanked the co-chairmen for their hard work and commitment over the years, and then shared a heartfelt moment with the honoree. "If you've always wanted to volunteer, but haven't been able to find the time, ask Carol Feuerman of Longwood how she does it. The active grandmother and mother of five adult children holds two jobs, and serves on three nonprofit boards, including the Jewish Pavilion. We are proud to honor Carol for championing the senior community, and for serving at the helm of the Pavilion when the idea for the Orlando Senior Help Desk, a help line for older adults and their families, was first mentioned."

Feuerman responded that she was honored to be in the presence of so many friends and supporters, and was thrilled to have a large gathering of her family, all in one place at the same time. She thanked her family for supporting her involvement in so many causes, like the Jewish Pavilion, which she holds close to heart.
