Mark A. Jardina Golf Classic

The 1st Annual Mark Jardina Golf Classic went off without a hitch…….almost!  The weather held out for all but the last hour of the golf tournament!  The rain did not dampen the mood, however.  Everyone played hard and enjoyed the on and off course refreshments including the Grey Goose Station, the King of Pops Station as well as the fresh fruit and Sweetwater Brewery Stations!  In addition, we had the privilege  to have PGA Tour Professional, Troy Matteson, on hand all day to mix, mingle and play golf with our golfers which was a real treat.  Not only did Troy stay and play all day, he also donated all of the prizes for the winners and runner ups.  What a generous and kind guy!


The feedback from the tournament has been overwhelming and we plan on making next year’s tournament even better!  The gathering of friends all with the purpose of remembering Mark in a positive and purposeful manner made for a great and lasting tribute to a wonderful husband, father and friend.
