LAWRENCE — Winning teams have been announced for the fourth annual Golf Classic, which raised more than $18,000 for the Kansas Audio-Reader Network.
University of Kansas associate athletic director John Hadl chaired the event, which was May 20 at Alvamar Country Club. Eighteen teams participated. The winners are as follows:
First place, flight A: Blaine Sampson, Tom Keegan and Wes Lynch
First place, flight B: Scott Weatherwax, Anthony Mynsted and Dick Haitbrink
Second place, flight A: Tyler McMaster, Bob Schwartz, Dave Boxberger and Gary Rieger
Second place flight B: Dr. Mark Praeger, Kent Beisner, Gene Meyer and Sheryle D'Amico.
Other winners include: Gene Hotchkiss, longest putt; D'Amico, closest to the pin (women’s) and longest drive (women’s); Pat Bello, closest to the pin (men’s); and Pete Knutson, longest drive (men’s).
"Audio-Reader is an important service that brings information and companionship to the blind and visually impaired in Lawrence and around the state. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the tournament,” Hadl said.
The Kansas Audio-Reader Network exists to provide print-disabled citizens with access to the printed word and other information via closed-circuit radio and telephone reader broadcasts, internet, special request and audio-description of live theatre. Services are provided free of charge to enable print-disabled persons the opportunity to live their lives with the greatest possible personal independence.
“Thanks to the help of John Hadl and many supporters, the Audio-Reader golf tournament has become an event we are really proud of,” said Janet Campbell, Audio-Reader executive director.
