ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL GOLF TOURNAMENT
By Dave Cantley
The Eleventh Annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Tournament sponsored by The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation was held Saturday, November 3, at The Atlantis Country Club. A total of 73 players participated in the tournament under a cloudless sky and a cool breeze. This was our first tournament held in November and the cooler weather brought several favorable comments from the participants.
The winning foursome consisted of Randy Vassalotti, James King, Charlie Gard and Keith Bell with a score of 55. For the first time, we had a tie for second place with both foursomes scoring 59. The two teams were: Lyle Kayse, Stephen Patton, Michael Woods (DFS Treasurer) and Max Magmou The other team consisted of Chris Compton, Randy Plate, James Moore and Tom Regan. The award of most honest (not to say anyone was dishonest) went to the team of William Schaefer, Janice Schaefer, David Dyer and Kate Dyer.
Max Magmou won the closest to the pin contest on Hole 5 and Chris Compton won the contest on hole 8. Closest to the line was won by Jim Fems on hole 11. Helicopter drop winners were Joanne Aiken, Katherine Graves and Helen Gilmore.
Tournament Director Vicki Rautbord was ill and could not attend the event but her team of volunteers did a great job of seeing that everything ran smoothly. Her volunteers, members of The Atlantis Country Club, worked from 10 A.M. until the conclusion of the day at 7:30 P.M. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Jacky and Morey Bledsoe, Phyllis Brown, Betty and Steward Hurline, Pat and Ray Matulis, Paula and Alan Michelson, Justine and John Rossi and Cathy Toppin. The two Lake Worth foundations were represented by Harold and Helen Gilmore, Pam Flanagan, Caryl Anderson, Pete DiDonato, Lake Worth High Assistant Principal, Phil Calcagno, President of The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation and Dave Cantley, President of Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars.
First year sponsor John Caruso and his team at The Dune Deck Café, on Lantana Beach provided the box lunches. We deeply appreciate John and longtime sponsors, The Morganti Group, Tuppen's Marine and tackle, The Lake Worth Fishing Foundation, Wayne Akers Ford, Dave's Last Resort and Lantana Ace Hardware who continue to support us each year. We extend our thanks to them and others who helped make the tournament possible.
