April 23 - 24, 2005
The 2005 Jeff Berberich Memorial Golf Tournament was a huge success! Friday evening the golfers along with their spouses and families met at Montego Bay for our annual "welcome" dinner. It was a great time to visit and exchange conversation.

Saturday, we were greeted with some early morning rain (something very rare for Panama City Beach.) After a brief delay, 132 anxious golfers teed it up and proceeded to give it their best shot.

Saturday evening many golfers and their families joined us for the Jeff Berberich Memorial Putting Contest, another opportunity to spend time with everyone.

Once again, this event sponsored by Hungry Howies, Budweiser and Coca Cola was a great success.

The winner of the putting contest was Robbie Willis and the winner of the Junior Division was our granddaughter Samantha Berberich.

It was a great evening and another way we were able to raise a few extra dollars for the children.

Sunday morning dawned as beautiful as ever, and our family and many of our friends attended a Mass at St. Bernadette's Catholic Church in memory of our son Jeff.

Once again, all the golfers teed it up at noon for the final round of golf.
It was a tight match and finally the team of Joe Bavetta, Marilyn Bavetta, George Panella and David Harbin emerged as the "2005 Champions."

The Hombre Staff out did themselves once again, and we appreciate all the staff's hard work and attention to details which are overseen by Paul Sylvester and Club Manager, Dan McGrath.

The culmination of the tournament was the presentation of the check for the kids. Through your contributions, participation, and support, we were able to present the Guardian Ad Litem / Advocates for Children with a check in the amount of $45,000.00!

Friday afternoon we had our annual Jeff Berberich / Montego Bay Shootout and twenty golfers in two flights look to the links and played their best. The winners were:
  A Division: Terry Shackelford
  B Division: Mary Klunk

During the dinner the prizes were distributed to all the golfers, we also held the drawing for our grand raffle item (an authgraphed Leroy Neiman serigraph of the Old Clubhouse at St. Andrews,) and the lucky winner was Harry Lyons.
