A portion of the proceeds from the fundraiser was donated to the Lou Scoras Scholarship Fund. Charles Bryant, executive director of AASP/NJ, stated, "Even though this is a very emotional day for those of us who knew and worked with Lou, it's gratifying to see how much support we get and how much fun the players have... it was a fantastic day all around."
Shop owners, technicians, vendors and other industry professionals came out for a fun-filled day of lunch, golf and networking. Over 50 sponsors contributed to the event through hole and prize sponsorships.
This year's winning team was comprised of Randy Scoras, John Scoras, Al Taylor and George Lechner. Second place was awarded to Mitch Portnoi and Robert Spitzer, and the team consisting of Keith Egan, Robert Mallon and Wes Mallon came in third. John Scoras won the prize for Closest to the Pin, with Bill Laub taking the Longest Drive victory.
After golfing, attendees indulged in a cocktail reception before dinner when Joe Amato Sr. of the Amato Agency emceed the 50/50 drawing and prize raffle sponsored by industry vendors. In his pre-dinner speech, AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell noted, "Even though this event is a tribute to Lou, it is also a time to recognize and remember those in the industry that we have recently lost. I want to thank everyone who took the time for a work day to come out here and honor all of their memories."
