READING AHEPA SCHOLARSHIP GOLF CLASSIC
The 13th Annual Ernie Orphanos Memorial Golf Classic was held on Saturday, August 20th, concluding another successful year for the Reading AHEPA chapter. Congratulations to the 2022 tournament foursome champions – Bernie Donahue, Jason Arnold, Bern Donahue and David Waligurski. The second place tournament winners were Gus Kotsakis, Vaz Kotsakis, Dino Kotsakis and Matt McDonald. We were truly blessed with beautiful weather and all participants had a most enjoyable day of golf, fellowship and good food. In addition to the 72 golf participants, 45 individual and business sponsors helped bring in $15,158 in revenue, resulting in a net profit of $8,270 for this year’s tournament. The proceeds from this annual event provide scholarships for our Berks County youth to continue their education following high school graduation. These young men and women have gone on to successful academic and professional careers that give back to our same community that supported them with these AHEPA scholarships. This year, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the International Orthodox Christian Charities for the Ukraine Relief Effort. IOCC offers emergency relief to those in need worldwide.
