Months of planning unfolded beautifully on Tuesday, Sept. 1 into another well-executed and successful fund raiser. The 27th Annual Hebrew Academy of Tidewater Konikoff Center of Learning Golf Tournament—or Bob Josephberg Classic, as it is often called— had old and new friends swinging for the kids again. Ninety-three golfers enjoyed a stunning course and excellent service from Bayville Golf Club and delicious food from the Cardo Café. More than 35 volunteers made the day run smoothly.

“Working with some of the school’s most revered champions, Bob Josephberg, Angela Jenkins, tournament co-chairs Nathan and Ilana Benson, and Nathan’s assistant Linda Todd was such a blessing and a joy,” says Patti Seeman, HAT director of development. “Together with the planning committee they made it happen, achieving 15% above our fund raising goal from 120 generous tournament sponsors.”

“A heartfelt thanks goes out to all of the HAT and Campus staff, HAT Trustees, and parents,” adds Seeman, “who assisted with obtaining sponsorships and prizes, planning menus, making the golfers’ goodie bags, working the tournament, taking photos, and setting and cleaning up. From the months of advanced planning to the day of the event, you are the reason the tournament is the continued success it is.”

Mark calendars for Tuesday, August 30, 2016, to share in the fun again at Bayville. For more information, contact Patti Seeman, HAT director of development, at 424-4327, or email pseeman@hebrewacademy.net.
