Despite what started as a rainy day, Laurel Hill Golf Club was abuzz last Tuesday morning for Waterford Receptions’ 4th annual golf tournament. Community members, golf enthusiasts, and multiple PGA pros gathered for the charity event, which raised nearly $10,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Everyone gathered around 7:30 a.m. to mingle, enjoy breakfast, and get in some last-minute practice on the driving range. The rain stopped just after 9:00 AM, enabling the players to get out on Laurel Hill’s nationally ranked course. Following the (thankfully) rain-free round, everyone enjoyed an awards luncheon catered by Waterford Receptions.
As a member of the board of the National MS Society, Waterford Receptions’ CEO Keith Clark organizes this annual event to support the tremendous cause of finding a cure for MS. Throughout the year, Keith and Waterford Receptions host and support various MS society events.
Congrats to the tournament winners – Harry Lee, Chris Lee, Jeff Weaver, and Curtis Rakosi – and thank you to all foursomes, individuals, sponsors, and donors for your contributions. Your participation and generosity is much appreciated.
Waterford Receptions was joined by Dominion Towing and Sysco Eastern Maryland as co-sponsors of the tournament. Other valuable contributors were Focused Image, Hilton Springfield, Shapiro, Lifschitz & Schram, Julius Hobson, Jr., JR’s Stockyards Catering and Seasons 52 Restaurant at Tysons Corner.
