Blue Skies for MCTA Golf Tournament

After two successive years of inclement weather, Mother Nature finally gave MCTA a break—and what a triumph it was with 184 golfers participated in the MCTA Bill Mullen Memorial Golf Tournament.

This year’s tournament was held June 21 at Old Hickory Golf Course in St. Peters, Missouri. Judging from golfer comments, the course was a winner, so plans include holding next year’s tournament at the same location.

Our first place team consisted of Tom DeMuse, Mark Maloy and Ryan Dansby (Aurora) and Sean Gallagher (Charter Communications). Congratulations to all on a great round of golf!

With all of the items on display, the silent auction and raffle were a huge success. Attendees walked away with some great prizes: a set of golf clubs, bottles of superb wine, an NFL football autographed by current KC Chiefs starting quarterback Matt Cassel, and St. Louis Cardinals green seat baseball tickets, just to name a few.

Hockey Hall-of-Famer and former St. Louis Blues player Bernie Federko, served as honorary chairman. Leif Lisec, KC Metro Sports personality, was the master of ceremonies, while HBO’s Jennifer Mancuso assisted as the official auctioneer.

Participants enjoyed sumptuous food, great fellowship, and a good time was had by all. Proceeds from the event go to the MCTA PAC. Thanks to all who participated in any way!
