2017 Fall Classic Delivers Big Win for the Kids

The Lehigh Country Club was the setting on Monday, Sept. 11 for 138 golfers, tennis and pickleball players who turned out for Good Shepherd’s 2017 Fall Classic benefiting the Pediatrics Program. Together with the Celebrity Bartender event on Thursday, Sept. 7, which raised over$3,000, more than $175,700 was collected.  Brilliant sunshine and blue skies were the hallmark of the day which began with breakfast and concluded with a barbeque, live auction and raffle. Former Hall of Famer and NFL wide receiver Andre Reed played with the top grossing foursome.

Bringing additional celebrity status to the classic was Carl Wolter, two-time long drive world champion, who leveraged his considerable talent to further advance the fund-raising mission with golfers eager to improve their overall scores. Good Shepherd Trustee Paul Emrick chaired the event for the second consecutive year and was given the Bob Ford Leadership Award. For many years, Bob was deeply involved in the annual event, helping to raise thousands of dollars and volunteering countless hours. Presenting the award was Bob’s widow, Mary Elaine.
