Golf event to benefit Palermo Foundation


A golf tournament to benefit the Steve Palermo Foundation For Spinal Cord Injuries will be held Aug. 8 at the Chestnut Ridge Golf & Country Club. A four-man scramble format will be used with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

Palermo, the American League umpire who was shot while trying to prevent a robbery three years ago, will serve as master of ceremonies for the event, which is being sponsored by the Timonium restaurant that bears his name. There will be long drive and closest-to-the-pin contests, with a car offered as the prize for a hole in one on two designated holes.

The $150 entry feel includes cart and green fees, lunch and refreshments on the course and a buffet dinner at Palermo's Grill after the tournament. Dinner for nongolfers is $50, hole sponsorship is $100 and door prize donations are being solicited, with proceeds going to the Palermo Foundation.

For registration or information, call Jerry Schiavino at (410) 252-0600.
