2nd Team Ernie Golf Tournament
The second Team Ernie Golf outing is this Saturday June 1st! Last year’s tournament was a huge success we raised $27,000 and had a great turnout thanks to all of our wonderful participants. Team Ernie pledged $60,000 to the Holyoke Public Library’s Renovation Project so that we could memorialize Ernie in the city of Holyoke forever. The Newspaper and Periodical Room is where Ernie’s room will be, which is only fitting since he was an avid reader of newspapers and magazines.
During the year, Team Ernie had a tour of the Library project. It was amazing to see the transformation and we can only imagine how beautiful it will be. We couldn’t have picked a better spot for Ernie’s room; it has high ceilings, natural light and beautiful stone. The library preserved a lot of the original building while also adding a touch of modern day to it.
Since we raised $27,000 last year we are almost half way to reaching our goal. We hope you can join us this Saturday for a day of fun, golf and remembering Ernie. It is at the Wyckoff Country Club in Holyoke beginning at 1:00. You don’t need to golf to join in on the fun. There will be a dinner, DJ, and dancing as our evening function kicks off at 6 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person. There will be plenty of raffle prizes including some sports tickets. You don’t want to miss this event, once we reach our goal of $60,000 the tournaments are going to stop so join in while you can!
