Photos: Ann Liguori Foundation Golf Tournament


We all know that golfers are SERIOUS about their games. But they also like to have some lighthearted moments too. So, in celebration of that, let’s start this one with a little golf humor, just for funsies.

Noting that her husband looked more haggard and disgruntled than usual after his weekly golf game, his wife asked what was wrong.

He answered, “Well, on the 4th hole, Harry had a heart attack and died. It was terrible! The entire rest of the day, it was hit the ball, drag Harry, hit the ball, drag Harry!”


Now on to more serious stuff.  : )

I’ve got some great photos of the 19th annual Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic at the Maidstone Club in East Hampton from this past week. Woohoo! All photos were shot by Daniel Gonzalez.

The hugely successful event was the 19th straight sell-out with golfers who came in from all over the world to play and support the cause — raising money and awareness for cancer research and prevention.

Jim Donaghy, named 2017 Ann Liguori Foundation Business Honoree, said “everything about the tourney was first class! It’s obvious to see how much the golfers appreciate the effort by the Ann Liguori Foundation and the prestigious golf courses that host the tourney each year. There’s a fun, positive, festive attitude throughout the entire event.”

Two-time Super Bowl champ Ottis Anderson was entertaining and lively as the celebrity auctioneer. He did his part to help raise money by sharing great Golf trips, unique dining experiences and prizes to those in attendance. Fun, fun, fun!
