2019 Friends In Deed 2nd Annual Golf Classic
The second annual Friends In Deed Golf Classic took place on Monday, June 24, 7 weeks after it was originally supposed to take place because of rain. It turned out to a great day for golf. Not too hot. Beautiful weather. And lots of friends out there supporting the work we do at Friends In Deed. And, if you are already thinking of next year’s Golf Classic, SAVE the DATE. It will take place on Monday, May 4, 2020.
