Chandler Hall Golf Classic

Chandler Hall’s 15th Annual Golf Classic, held at Trenton Country Club, was a tremendous success as sponsors and golfers came together to raise over $35,000 for Chandler Hall’s Hospice Program and Elder Services.

Sunny skies, combined with the complimentary Caddy Daddy bags that golfers received, a delicious outdoor lunch, and an elegant dinner with a view of the course, all helped to create a memorable day for all in attendance. Guest speaker Merrill Reese regaled guests with his insights into the world of sports. Guests enjoyed two auctions, one live and one silent, with a broad assortment of items up for bid, including golf equipment, baseball tickets, foursomes at special clubs, fine art, and a trip to Harrisburg featuring a tour with Representative Steve Santarsiero.
