IF YOU COULD USE AN EXCUSE TO PLAY GOLF, WE’VE GOT A MILLION
The Dawn to Dusk Golf Marathon is the largest one-day fundraiser for the J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship Trust. Every August, club representatives play golf sunrise to sundown to raise money for Philadelphia’s True Golf Charity. Since its dawn, the annual event has raised more than $1.4 million with more than 23,000 holes played. This year’s Dawn to Dusk is set for Monday August 5 at Rolling Green Golf Club from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
MANY ENTER BUT ONLY ONE TEAM WINS.
The Platt Olympics is a skills-challenge event with a fundraising goal. Teams of four will compete in three different challenges — closest to the hole, chipping, and putting — on Thursday, June 27 at Huntingdon Valley Country Club. Teams can also earn points for raising more than the base $1,000 entry fee.
A THANK YOU FOR OUR DONORS
The Platt Cup is open to all contributors who give at the Birdie Level ($500) or higher, along with all Lifetime and Endowed contributors. The 2019 event takes place Monday, July 22 at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club.
MEET YOUR CADDIE(S)
The annual J. Wood Platt Brunch brings together both Platt donors and scholars during the holiday season for a time of celebration. In 2018, Tom Doll, the CEO of Subaru North America and a former caddie at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, was the guest speaker at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. Luke Ciminera of Aronimink Golf Club and West Chester University was recognized as the Francis C. Poore Caddie of the Year. The 2019 Brunch is set for Saturday, December 21 at Llanerch Country Club.
