The 21st Annual Ladies Golf Classic: A Hole-in-One for Ann’s Place and One Lucky Golfer

Ridgefield's HamletHub - On June 27th Ann’s Place hosted the 21st annual Ladies Golf Classic at Richter Park in Danbury to a sold out field of golfers. As an added bonus to the day’s success, Sharon Bodner of Ridgefield was the winner of a brand new convertible, courtesy of Ingersoll Auto of Danbury, after landing a lucky hole-in-one at the 17th hole. In keeping with the spirit of the event, and in lieu of the tradition of buying a round of drinks to fellow golfers, Ms. Bodner made a generous personal donation to Ann’s Place.

Many Ann’s Place volunteers dedicate many hours of personal time throughout the year to ensure the event’s success. “The entire planning committee was so excited about the success of the Ann’s Place 2016 Ladies Golf Classic. The day was picture perfect and we had 34 foursomes of golfers,” said Betty Hensal, member of the Ladies Golf Classic Committee and an Ann’s Place Board member. “We also appreciated the support of the community as we had many advertisers in our tournament booklet, outstanding raffle prize donations, silent auction items, and numerous tee sign advertisers. All of the golfers loved playing golf at Richter Park while supporting Ann’s Place. It was a very special day!”

Money raised through the event will further Ann’s Place mission of providing comfort and support to individuals living with cancer, and their families. The organization’s services include individual counseling, support groups, wellness activities, referrals to community resources, and educational programs
