Prizes were awarded for longest drive and closest to the pin. A special award was presented to the youngest golfer, five-year old Gabriel Semertzides. The post-tournament steak dinner featured a 50-50 drawing, a raffle, and prizes donated by the business community of Western New York. The event raised thousands of dollars for the Annunciation Church. The Golf Committee was chaired by Ahepan Damianos Skaros, who said that planning is already underway for next year’s event.
