In those years they have raised nearly 20 million dollars for autism. The fight goes on to help their son, Owen, and others with that dreadful disease.
For the very first time I got to attend this year. I was so impressed, so proud, so blown away by the dedication so many people have put forth every year to help out. My daughter, Shirley, has helped for about 8 years. I'm so proud of my children. Here Shirley gets recognized for her work with Autism.
Around noon golfers head for the shoot-out.
There were two (2) holes in one made during the day. Amazing!! The weather had been cold and miserable over the weekend but come Monday, the day of the tournament, the sun was shining, the air was pleasant. A perfect day.
I selected me a choice spot on the terrace where I could watch everything. Food was being served at all times so I sat down with some fruit. Alan Kalter (the announcer from the David Letterman Show) joined me and we had a lovely chat.
And, busy little bees are hard at work in the auction rooms setting up displays.
Tighe (Susan and Kevin's 4 1/2 year old) is having a good time. He was so good all day long.
Susan brings Howard Cross (former NY Giants player) over to meet me. He's super nice and also did a fantastic job helping with the live auction later in the evening.
But, I missed my chance getting to meet Tony Dovolani (from Dancing With the Stars). Max was there, too, but Tony is my favorite. Oh well, there is always next year's event!!
More in a couple days..................
