West Philly Golf Classic 2017

Thanks to the support of our sponsors, golfers, committee members, donors, board members, staff and volunteers, this year's West Philly Golf Classic was a great success. Taking place on Saturday, October 28th, the event raised nearly $33,000 in gross revenue for the families and community we serve.

For the third time in the past four years, the ACHIEVEability West Philly Golf Classic took place on the beautiful Olde Course at Cobbs Creek Golf Club in West Philadelphia. The outing featured 19 foursomes competing for a year's worth of bragging rights as the crowning champion.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
The winning team consisted of James Whitton, Carmen Gambone and Dave Stoudt who shot an amazing 10 under par. The tournament featured various on-course contests and activities including an assortment of raffle items, longest drive, closest to the pin and a chance for one golfer to putt for a grand prize of $5,000.
