27th Annual Mercy Golf Classic to Benefit Inspiring Students


ALLENTOWN – Golfers can come out and enjoy a great day of golf for a great cause at Mercy School For Special Learning’s 27th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, Aug. 1, 2016.

Brookside Country Club will once again host the event that benefits Mercy, the Lehigh Valley’s only private school for children and young adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Mercy has helped students from Lehigh, Northampton and Monroe counties reach their fullest potential for more than 60 years through a combination of academics, life skills, and community engagement.

Last year’s Classic netted Mercy nearly $46,000 and welcomed 163 golfers. Like last year, golfers have their choice of playing in a morning round (7:30 a.m. shotgun start) or an afternoon round (12:30 shotgun start) or both. Cost is $175 per golfer for 1 round (or $300 for both) and includes a continental breakfast, lunch and dinner; golfers receive round preference on a first-come, first-served basis.

CrossAmerica Partners, Dunne Manning, City Center Lehigh Valley and IAI Construction are among the Principal Sponsors for the event. Awards will be given to the top foursomes (men’s, women’s and mixed), longest drive and closest to pin. Event prizes include four major Hole-in-One prizes, a 50/50 Pot O’Gold and a 50/50 cash drawing.

The Mercy Golf Classic also is a member event in the Landis Cup, which is sponsored by the Landis Family Foundation.
