EPC hosts 45th annual golf outing
The skies were blue, the temperature an ideal mid-70s and people were happy to gather together again as a council. Postponed from the original date of June 6, the EPC hosted its 45th annual Sal Zacchia, Phil LaRocca and Pete Piastra Memorial Golf Outing at Fox Hollow Golf Club in Branchburg, NJ, on Saturday, Sept. 12.
Following a grab-and-go breakfast, the group went out to play golf in a shotgun format. The top two teams of the day both had a score of 59, but breaking the tie was the team of Derrick Bender, Ed Rummel, Sam Cefalu and Anthony DeAngelis. The second place team comprised Michael Rojas, Angela Aronica and Daniel Milan.
The longest drive winners were Michael Rojas and Theresa Lowden, and the closest to the pin winners were Michael D’Arrigo, Rich Borchers, Brian D’Arrigo and Steve Tirado. The winner of the putting contest was Michael Hungerbuhler.
Following the round of golf was a boxed BBQ lunch, cocktails, a 50/50 raffle drawing and grand prize drawing of a set of golf clubs. There was also a prize raffle.
In her closing remarks EPC Executive Director Susan McAleavey Sarlund thanked everyone for coming out to support the event and the golf committee who was committed to hosting the event and getting the membership together in what has truly been an unprecedented year. She also thanked all the sponsors who contributed to the outing, including Gold Sponsors Dole and Giorgio, Silver Sponsor Robinson Fresh and Bronze Sponsors American Blueberries, Fruitco, Hapco Farms, Lancaster Foods and Pennrose Farms.
