The tournament also included something special for two clients of Loaves & Fishes. One gentleman was given free entry into the tournament, thanks to a donor who provided a “scholarship” so the client could participate at no cost to him. The second client, a family of four, received tickets to a Lowell Spinners baseball game, plus “Spinner Dollars” to use for the purchase of food and beverages. We hope to do more of this for our clients in future golf tournaments.

For the Loaves & Fishes community, thank you for your continued and generous support.
