Golfers made drives for the Orlando Senior Help Desk
May 17, 2019
Early on a bright and pleasant Sunday morning, more than 100 players teed up at Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Club for the Pavilion Golf Society's annual golf tournament. The May 5th event benefitted 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 followed the tournament and featured a live auction of luxury items such as a weekend Porsche Boxter experience and a weeklong vacation at the winner's choice of hundreds of dream destinations.
Nancy Ludin, Jewish Pavilion CEO, expressed her gratitude to the Pavilion Golf Society committee for its hard work in making the tournament such a success. "Our tournament committee members Ken Davis, Keith Levitt, David D'Agostino, Ken Schneider, Elise Schilowitz, Tracy Weiss, and Elizabeth Pacelkso did a wonderful job of organizing and promoting the tournament and recruiting sponsors. I'm so glad that they and all of our attendees were able to enjoy an absolutely beautiful morning of golf." Ludin also thanked the management and staff of Rosen Shingle Creek for being so accommodating and providing such excellent service.
Tournament winners, with a score of 53, were the threesome of Ken Davis, Kim Strong, and Robert Strong. Larry Gendzier had the men's longest drive. Kim Strong had the women's longest drive and also the women's closest to the pin at 7 feet 7 inches. Charles Chung had the men's closest to the pin at 5 feet 8 inches.
