On June 8 in East Hampton, the 19th Annual Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic went off without a hitch. The foundation raises money for cancer research and prevention, and golfers came from all corners of the world to play at the Maidstone Club to support such a worthy cause.

Ottis Anderson, the two-time Super Bowl champion, was the celebrity auctioneer. Prizes included golf trips to Ireland, Bermuda and Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic. Also auctioned off were opportunities to play at the Shinnecock Golf Club, Winged Foot Golf Club and Sebonack Golf Club, and guests were able to bid on a table for eight at Rao’s from New York City Major candidate Bo Dietl.

Other prizes for those in attendance were Dunning shirts, Greg Normal Apparel, JoFit Apparel, Marc Joseph New York Shoes, Maui Jim sunglasses, OGIO Golf Bags, Revo, TaylorMade clubs, Tour Edge Golf clubs and Zero Friction GPS gloves. But only golfers received COOLA Suncare, a Dune Jewelry custom personally engraved divot repair tool, Eye King/Under Armour sunglasses, a Greg Norman Apparel shirt, Imperial Headwear, NoNatz Bug Spray, RMS golf gloves and TaylorMade golf balls.

“I loved the course,” said Roy Matlock, who had never played golf or been to the Hamptons before this event. “The swag was great and the food at Maidstone was great. And all for a great cause!”

“Everything about the tourney was first class,” the Ann Liguori Foundation Business Honoree Jim Donaghy added. “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.”
