Wellington National Golf Club welcomes players to support families in need with a day of sporting fun
PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. – It was the perfect day of golf and feel good energy as Clinics Can Help (CCH), the West Palm Beach-based nonprofit helping to enable access to healthcare to all through the donation of medical equipment and supplies, hosted their 6th Annual Golf Classic. The event took place on Friday, April 26, 2019, at Wellington National Golf Club and raised over $57,000!
“What an incredible day,” shared Owen O’Neill, Chief Executive Officer. “I am blown away by the support for our organization through this tournament. It is even more exciting to see how it has grown and evolved since our first year. One of the most touching moments was having Devon Quigley and his mother join us. He is the reason we are here today. “Devon, son of golf great Dana Quigley, was the inspiration behind the Clinics Can Help Golf Classic. Quigley came to the organization following a life changing accident Devon was involved in and the family was in desperate need of equipment for Devon. Clinics Can Help provided the family with the equipment needed.
Serving as chair of the tournament was CBS 12 News morning anchor Matt Lincoln. He was helped by a great group of committee members which included Andrea McMillan, Gil Martinez, Pam Swensen, Alan Salomon, Sally Chester, Myk Nelsen, Vic Carlucci and Jon Levy.
In addition to the 18 holes, golfers had a friendly competition to take home prizes for Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, a Putting Contest and Hole in One prize supplied by Arrigo Dodge Jeep Chrysler. Taking home the top prize was the winning foursome of Brandon Rippo, Eric West, Johnny Matute, and Danny German.
Other notable guests in attendance include Miss South Florida Fair Mariluz Cook, Miss Palm Beach County Jessica Fernandez, Village of Wellington Vice Mayor Mike Napoleone, and Village of Wellington Councilman John McGovern.
Proceeds from the Golf Classic support CCH’s KINDER Project, the organization’s program which provides durable medical equipment and supplies, at no cost, to children with special needs. Many of the children in CCH’s KINDER Project are affected by serious medical conditions and would not be able to afford the supplies and equipment that enables them to lead more independent lives.
