By Don Allord, AHAI Foundation Golf Outing Chairman
The 20th Annual AHAI Foundation Golf Outing went off without a hitch this past Friday, August 12th at the Indian Lakes Golf Resort in Bloomingdale. The rain stopped at 11:00am and we teed off at noon. Golfers all managed to finish their games safe and dry and get into the banquet hall by 5:00pm just before the rain began again. Prizes were distributed to everyone thanks to the vast number of donations made to support the cause. The AHAI Foundation Golf Outing will be the same time next year, but at a different location due to the golf course shutting down at the end of this year.
Thanks again to all the volunteers who make this such an enjoyable event and to all the participants who gave up their time to help a worthy cause. As I said before dinner, we are a family. We came together 20 years ago to help a young man who was injured and in those 20 years JJ O’Connor has influenced the Disabled Section of USA Hockey in a profound way as well as touching our hearts and the hearts of the causes that benefit from this event.
