The Eithne & Paddy Fitzpatrick Memorial Fund Celebrates the 24th Annual Golf Tournament
New York, NY: The 24th Annual Eithne & Paddy Fitzpatrick Memorial Golf Tournament took place on Monday, May 15th, 2017 at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club, one of the country’s most prestigious and attractive golf courses, located in Scarborough, NY.
The Eithne & Paddy Fitzpatrick Memorial Fund was created in honor of John Fitzpatrick’s late parents. Since its inception in 1993, the fund has raised over $3.7 million for deserving charities in Ireland and the U.S. and works very closely with the Ireland Fund to find projects to support. These include organizations such as Barretstown, the Integrated Education Fund, the Irish Arts Center, and The O’Hanlon Park Boxing Club in Dundalk. The fund’s mission remains the same as it was from the beginning – to actively help better the lives of those in need.
Irish Golf Pros, Mark Murphy and Eamonn Darcy, attended the event. Eamonn Darcy conducted a golf clinic before the shotgun start. Mark Murphy was on the 16th hole, holding a contest that gave guests the opportunity to win a world class driver.
