Frank Mingione, Nico Mingione, Michael Traylor, and Matt Traylor shot a 20-under-par 52 to win the 31st annual benefit scramble.  Matt Traylor also hit a hole-in-one on Otter Creek’s famed Alcatraz Four West.

Nearly 160 golfers participated in the event – many of them new to the Classic.

“We had some teams who were first-timers to our event,” said Amy Kleinert, DSI Chief Development Officer.  “I think the Golf Classic’s long tradition of quality is on par with that of DSI’s reputation of quality services for children.  The result is an event the community feels very good about supporting.”

Kleinert also noted that the support the event received through sponsorships and volunteers helped DSI reach its goals.

“Our sponsors helped us underwrite many of the Classic’s expenses so that our net total for Children’s Services was very good,” added Kleinert.  “We had a lot of volunteers from the community who made sure that everything was set-up and our golfers had the best accommodations possible.”

The Garland Company celebrated 25 consecutive years as a major participant and sponsor of the Golf Classic. This year, Garland Company and AAA Roofing Company were the event’s beverage sponsors and entered forty players. Rick Ryherd, Garland’s Roof Asset Management Specialist (front row, fifth from the left) receive special recognition by DSI for forging and maintaining the relationship.
