Boys & Girls Club Annual Golf Classic A Success

First-place winners Rick Bielan, Nick Rose, Elliot Bonner and Brad Shofstall.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County’s 39th annual Wellington Golf Classic was a success, despite changes due to COVID-19. The event held on Friday, Jan. 29 at the Wellington National Golf Club was filled with excitement as guests gathered to benefit the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington.

This year’s golf tournament included perfect weather and more than 40 golfers who took to the course for a day of golf in support of local children. The tournament kicked off at noon with a shotgun start, including an auction and awards celebration to follow.

“Even in these unique times, and despite a postponement of a few months, I am happy to say that our 39th annual Wellington Golf Classic was a tremendous success,” Wellington Board Chair Louis Eisenberg said. “The funds raised from this event will go a long way in helping the members of the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington.”

The first place foursome and reigning champions of the Wellington Golf Classic are Elliot Bonner, Nick Rose, Brad Shofstall and Rick Bielen. Closest to the pin winner is Craig Morris.

The Wellington Golf Classic was proud to have the support of the Chandler Construction Company, the Connor Financial Group, Elliot Bonner, the Desich Family, Ernst & Young LLC, Ford’s Garage, Ghering Insurance, Illustrated Properties-Nicolette Goldfarb, Lesser Lesser Landy & Smith, Sassafras Lange and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Committee members included Elliot Bonner, Louis Eisenberg, John Hornberger, Ray Mooney, Mickey Smith, Craig Morris and Max Westerman.

“A big thank-you to our host, the Wellington National Golf Club, our sponsors, our players and, of course, our staff and volunteers,” Eisenberg said. “Without these people, this event would not have been possible. Before we know it, our 40th annual Golf Classic will be here. Once again, it will be hosted by the Wellington National Golf Club on Nov. 5, 2021. We look forward to continued support from our sponsors and players to help our Club members become productive, caring and responsible citizens.”
