Sandy Hook firefighters were joined by dozens of friends and supporters on Monday, September 28, at The Golf Club at Oxford Greens, where the 2020 Golf Tournament was played.
Following registration and breakfast, teams waited for the 9 am siren start before beginning a full round of golf on the par 72 course.
By mid afternoon, a new foursome to the longstanding fundraiser emerged as winners. Greg Brick, Andrew Huntley, Jack List, and Eric Sirachi finished the day with a team score of 59. Second place went to Michael Haglof, Joe LaCava, Sal Menchiore, and Fran Pentino, who finished at 61.
Eric Sirachi also picked up the honor for Closest to The Pin on Hole #13 (9 feet, 7 inches). Additional special honors went to Carl Fazio, who was Closest to the Pin on Hole #9 (33 inches); Andrew Huntley, for the Longest Drive on Hole #8 (measurement unavailable); Brian Warner for Closest to the Line on Hole #13 (measurement unavailable). Hugh Differ trophies went to Travis Drew and Raymond Smith, who finished the day at 83.
Sandy Hook VFR would like to thank the staff at The Golf Club at Oxford Greens for another great day. We also thank everyone who sponsored this year's event, whether through direct donations, raffle prizes or other support; and we thank those who volunteered to help on Monday.
