Golfers teed off on Monday, August 28 for the annual Birdies & Books Charity Golf Classic to benefit the at-risk children served by Bernie’s Book Bank.

Bernie Jr. and Brian shared “right now means everything” and encouraged everyone to live in the moment and enjoy the day. It was truly a phenomenal day of golf, food and fun. Mother nature cut the round a little short but every made the most of it by starting the celebration early.

Congratulations to the winning team: Suzanne Brown Mahoney, Janie Taubensee, Nancy Taubensee and Patrice Wetzel!

 

We’d also like to congratulate the three winners of our contests:

Closest to the Hole:

#5        Brian Wayer

#14      Brian Reed

Longest Drive:

#18      Kelly Booth

The success of this event would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors. Special thanks to our Pulitzer Prize Sponsor, Coyote. We’re grateful to everyone who spent the day with us on the green in support of the 300,000 at-risk Chicagoland children Bernie’s Book Bank serves.

Join us next August for the 2018 Birdies & Books Charity Golf Classic!
