Bad weather fails to deter golfers in Carnegie library benefit

BY SONJA BROBECK

A little rain didn't slow the fun arranged for a good cause last Monday afternoon.

The First Annual Andrew Carnegie Free Library was blessed with 18-foursomes prepared to hit the greens and 104 ready to tempt their palates at an after golf buffet dinner and prize presentation.

"It was fantastic, better than I ever thought it would be," says Doug Dombrowski. "The library is so thankful to everyone who donated prizes to be awarded and raffled and also to those who came out in support by playing and sponsoring at the event."

Incoming and outgoing funds have not been officially tabulated. Dombrowski, library trustee who along with John Nolte and the help many members of the board, Carnegie Council and the library's Advisory Board, orchestrated the event, says the event made a nice chunk of money for the library. Total numbers will be released at a later date.

Although no one received $500 from DCD Construction or a new car from Woltz and Wind Ford by scoring a coveted hole in one, close to $5,000 in prizes were handed out during the event at Chartiers Country Club.

The winning team, for finishing 10 under par, consists of Alex Dombrowski, Doug Dombrowski, Bill Moore and George Snarey. A score of 70 is par and the group came in well under at 60. Snarey also was commended for the longest/straightest drive.

The second place team consists of Bryan Taylor, Ryan Moore, Rocky Locasio and Dom Nicoletta. Locasio also won a put-off held been 20 of the players.

Skill prize winners include:

  • Closest shot to green on the fifth hole, Dennis Joyce, district magistrate.

  • Longest put on hole 18, William Conwell.

  • Closest to the pin on par three, Steve Yurchak.

  • Closest to pin on hole seven, J. Myers.
