 With picture perfect weather, magnificent views, and a sold-out event, Westhampton’s Ann Liguori, radio and television sports personality, was thrilled with the outcome of her annual event which recently took place.
“WOW  sums up our charity tourney this year,” exclaimed Liguori. “Friar’s Head offered such a spectacular setting and delivered first class on everything — golf course, views, service, support, food and wine.”

“Thanks to all who made the 16th Annual Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic a huge success. It’s truly a pleasure to host and organize this fundraiser every year with such an excellent committee, sponsors, volunteers and participants. Monies raised will continue to support a variety of not-for-profit organizations including American Cancer Society, St. Jude’s Hospital, Southampton Hospital, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and camps that teach nutrition for young people, to name a few. Let’s all continue to work together to fight cancer and help others.”
