TREDYFFRIN TOWNSHIP LIBRARIES RAISES MORE THAN $40,000 AT FIRST-EVER CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC
Golfers, sponsors and volunteers came together on September 26 for the Penn Medicine Golf Classic, a day of golf and celebration at St. Davids Golf Club, raising funds for the Tredyffrin Township Library Foundation’s endowment, which provides for future growth and sustainability of Tredyffrin Public Library and Paoli Library.
The Tredyffrin Township Library Foundation hosted its first major fundraiser, the Penn Medicine Golf Classic, on Thursday, September 26, 2019, at St. Davids Golf Club in Wayne, Pennsylvania. The event raised more than $40,000. Warren Kampf was the event chair and Paul Olson was the honorary chair.
Penn Medicine pledged headline support for the event last fall and many other community businesses and leaders also contributed sponsorships. Additional sponsors included Aqua Pennsylvania, Wawa, Pennsylvania Trust, Eadeh Enterprises, Pat & Jim Siegel, Shelley & Mike Heaberg, and nearly 25 others (full sponsor list below).
The Penn Medicine Golf Classic participants enjoyed a barbeque lunch on the terrace at St. Davids Golf Club, eighteen holes of golf, snacks and beverages, several on-course contests, a raffle and a cocktail reception. BMW of Devon provided a car for a Hole in One Contest.
“This was a milestone day for both libraries and especially the Tredyffrin Township Library Foundation. Our goal was to raise $25,000, so we are extremely humbled and grateful for our extraordinary success, which was made possible by our sponsors, volunteers and golfers. We look forward to this day of support and celebration becoming a tradition,” said Chris Kibler, Library Director.
