Golfers teed up to raise money for the Orlando Senior Help Desk
May 18, 2018
More than 100 players hit the greens at Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Club on Sunday, May 6, for the Pavilion Golf Society's annual golf tournament. The event raised more than $18,000 to benefit the Orlando Senior Help Desk, a service of The Jewish Pavilion that offers free advice on services and living options for seniors.
The morning began with a light breakfast, after which golfers took to their carts and positioned themselves for the shotgun start. A luncheon and live auction followed the tournament, at which Keith Levitt, a longtime supporter of The Jewish Pavilion, was honored. Among the items auctioned were a weekend Porsche Boxter experience and a Golf Channel insider's tour at the Father/Son Challenge golf tournament in December at the JW Marriott in Orlando.
Tournament winners, with a score of 53, were the foursome of Robert Kleiman, Brian Waterfield, Brian Hunithe, and Ryan Lefkowitz. Waterfield had the men's longest drive. Claudia Green had the women's closest to the pin at 29 feet. Chad Ballard had the men's closest to the pin at 2 feet 3inches.
The money raised helps support the mission of the Orlando Senior Help Desk, which provides the only service of its kind in Central Florida and serves all callers, regardless of religious affiliation. Callers to the Orlando Senior Help Desk hotline are offered guidance on choosing senior living options, home health services, elder law, hospice, adult day care and more. To access this free service, call 407-678-9363.
