9th Annual Golf Classic

The 9th Annual Philadelphia Golf Classic was held on September 13, 2010 at the Philadelphia Cricket Club and Whitemarsh Valley Country Club.  Special thanks go to our lead sponsor, LinkSource Technologies.

Chaired by Shelbourne Capital’s Jim Kane, the Classic saw one hundred and fifty golfers take to the courses and enjoy a great day of golf, beautiful weather and spirited conversation.

A reception and dinner was held at Whitemarsh that included live and silent auctions.  The local beneficiary was the Kelly Rooney Foundation. 

Doonbeg Golf Pro Brian Shaw and his wife, Kyra Donworth, were featured guests for the day.  Bob Loftus, the chair of the new American Ireland Fund Golf Society, joined with Brian Shaw to announce plans for the 2011 Golf Society Ireland Tournament. Brian, a member of the AIF Golf Society, donated four trips to the Tournament as part of the live auction that will include accommodations and golf with him at Doonbeg and golf at Lahinch and Ballybunion.
