This event looks to celebrate all things Italian with lighthearted references to “The Godfather” movie, all while benefitting the Bruno and Carol Sammartino Foundation, whose mission is to provide those they serve with food, shelter, and services to ease their burdens of life’s basic necessities.
Golf will begin promptly at 1:30 with a shotgun start, scramble format, with trophies awarded to lowest score.
There will also be a separate bocce tournament held. This will also begin at 1:30, and will be limited to 10-4 man teams
