  • Second place gross (Rick Vairo, Dennis Toothman, Rob Mahoney and Aparna Sproelich)
  • First place net (Bob Kirkland, Billy Case, Bob Ball and Cy Dallin)

CERA would like to thank everyone for making this event such a success by coming out to play golf, sponsoring a tee sign and/or a flag, and gift contributions for door prizes. A big thank you goes out to all our volunteers who were instrumental in making the event a success. We couldn’t do it without you!
