On April 17, 2017, the Pastors Masters Charity Golf Tournament was held at the Talamore Country Club in Ambler, PA. The event benefited Love Cradle International, an orphan ministry dedicated to giving help and hope to abandoned children around the world, particularly in the Ukraine. The organization, headquartered in Souderton, PA, provides numerous programs for needy children including humanitarian programs and emergency aid, adoption support and counseling, hosting programs, foster care and transition home support, and mission trips.
This year’s tournament offered a great day of fellowship between local churches and businesses while providing corporate sponsors the opportunity to change the lives of orphaned children. Highlights of the event included a dinner reception and premium prizes for competition winners.
First place team members, Nate Weaver, Ben Weaver, Mike Clemmer and Wendell Weaver, representing Alderfer Glass Company, received the Masters Trophy, Pastors Masters Tournament Green Wind Breakers, and 40” Samsung Plasma Smart TVs. Steve Yagilnicky and Dr. Jack Parry, DPT, presented the awards.
Second place team members representing the Univest Corporation, were Gary Brown, Bill VanSant, Bruce Robertson and Jon Noel. They were awarded Titleist Professional Tour golf bags.
Clarke’s Landscaping team members, Andrew Clarke, Lori Clarke, Dave Clarke and Peter Clarke, won the third place prize of Bushnell Range Finders.
The Grand Prize Drawing winner was Pastor J.R. Damiani of Family Worship Center in Lansdale, PA. Pastor Damiani won a Char-Broil grill, a goody bag from Univest Corporation, a box of Titleist Pro V1 golf balls, and a greens fee certificate for Tallamore Country Club.
