WHERE: Rock Barn Country Club, Conover, North Carolina 28282
DESCRIPTION: "Steve Genetti was my uncle and best friend. More importantly, he was an Army Medic in Vietnam. He passed away November 14, 2016 from Primary Myeliofibrosis, a rare blood cancer that likely developed from exposure to Agent Orange during his time in Vietnam. Steve was a huge advocate for his fellow veterans and dedicated his life to supporting them any way he could. He especially took issue with veteran homelessness. In an effort to keep Steve’s spirit alive and continue his dedication to his fellow veterans, I’m hosting the 1st Annual Steve Genetti Golf Classic to benefit Veteran’s Bridge Home in Charlotte, NC. I chose this organization because they dedicate their time and efforts to helping veterans find employment, and training employers to better understand veterans. Veterans Bridge Home helps Charlotte-area Veterans successfully transition home after military service by identifying their education, employment and healthcare needs and connecting them to available community, state and federal resources. Steve loved golf and played as much as possible before going into the hospital at UNC Chapel Hill. While he was no good at it, it was still a favorite pastime, so all levels of golf experience are highly encouraged! This will be a fun day of classic games with a purpose! The format will be Captain's Choice with teams of 4. red tees and mulligans will be offered for sale, and handicaps, for those who have them, will be collected day of play so the rest of us can stand a chance!"
