Golfing for a cause


It was a bright and breezy start to the 34th annual Dwares JCC Golf Classic. The annual event, sponsored by the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island, was held June 3 at Alpine Country Club in Cranston. This year, 80 golfers started the day with a barbecue lunch on the patio, chair massages by Brad Kirton, LMT, and a lot of laughter. With a hole-in-one, golfers could win a trip to the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Unfortunately, no one successfully claimed that prize.

The evening ended with dinner and a fund-a-need program. Chairs Cindy and Mark Feinstein chose PJ Library to benefit from the funds raised. Golfers were asked to help raise money to give the gift of literacy to Jewish youth in Rhode Island.
