On Friday March 4th 2022, The Ireland Funds welcomed over 50 golfers and friends to its 2nd Annual Naples Golf Invitational at Tiburón Golf Club in Florida.
The Ireland Funds is grateful to Dan Conley for launching this event and for serving as a Co-Host alongside National Board Directors of The Ireland Funds America, Shaun Kelly and Bill Murphy, for the second year in a row.
After guests enjoyed a morning on the driving range and lunch outdoors, they teed off on the Greg Norman-designed Gold Course. Players enjoyed a long day out on the course in the Florida sunshine before gathering outside for cocktails on the Melbourne patio.
Shaun Kelly, Vice Chair of The Ireland Funds America, opened the dinner program and thanked his fellow Co-Hosts, the event’s sponsors and everyone who came out to support the work of The Ireland Funds that day.
Dan Conley, Co-Host of the event and President of Northern Litho, spoke warmly about the work of The Ireland Funds which will be strengthened by the outing.
Co-Host Dan Conley presented the golf awards, with Alex Lefcakis winning Longest Drive, Dante DiSabato, Brett Jones, Alex Lefcakis and Buck Paff winning Low Gross Foursome and Dan Conley, Shaun Kelly, Robert Mahoney and John Heaps winning Low Net Foursome.
Winners received a gift bag generously sponsored by The Conley Family, and a bottle of Courage & Conviction American Single Malt Whisky from Virginia Distillery Company.
