The rain held off, as the golfers made their way around Willow Hollow Golf Course teeing off another RECORD YEAR for the Jason Claudfelter Golf Invitational. This year’s event on August 16th was the highest grossing golf event ever for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County!
In the end, it came down to the wire. One of the two teams for RKL LLP came in at 3rd Place with a score of 56. Two teams — Sam’s Team (last year’s champions) and Customers Bank — tied for 1st & 2nd with a score of 54…but it was Customers Bank who edged it out with the tie-breaker to win this year’s tournament.
We want to thank everyone who made this year’s event a success including our Title Sponsors: Baker Tilly, UGI, Customers Bank, Cipriani & Werner, and Enersys. We also want to thank our other Corporate Sponsors: American Male Salon, Caron Treatment Centers, DeAngelo Insurance, Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced materials, RKL LLP, Stevens & Lee/Griffin, and West Lawn Quoiting Association.
