Willow Creek Golf & Country Club in Mount Sinai will host the ninth annual St. Louis de Montfort Golf Outing on Friday, June 7 and the third annual Pete DeVito Memorial Foundation outing on the following Friday, June 14.
The St. Louis de Montfort outing will honor parishioner Carol Landy and the Sound Beach Fire Department. The $190 entry free includes range balls and cart, a buffet lunch and all-day barbecue and beverages on the course. Lunch begins at noon with a shotgun start scheduled for 1:30. Dinner and cocktails follow the round with prizes for on-course contests and a silent auction.
Proceeds benefit the Miller Place church's parish outreach program, which worked hard alongside the Sound Beach Fire Department to provide food, shelter and support last fall after Hurricane Sandy. To register as a golfer or sponsor, call Jim Brennan at the parish office at (631) 744-8566, or print and submit the outing brochure.
On June 14, the Pete DeVito Memorial Foundation will raise money for the fight against idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis when its third annual outing tees off at 1:00 p.m.
Lunch, registration and open practice on the range begin at 11:00 a.m. After the round, the event continues with an open-bar cocktail hour, dinner, awards, raffles, auctions and prizes for course competitions. Entry fee is $175 per player. Sign up as a player, sponsor or dinner guest by visiting the Pete DeVito Memorial Foundation website for a registration form.
