Nearly 80 golfers enjoyed the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce’s Wounded Warrior Golf Outing at the Arnold Palmer designed course, The Signature @ West Neck, in Virginia Beach on May 20.
For years, business leaders in Hampton Roads have mixed business with pleasure on the golf course. This year, we were privileged to have Lieutenant Jason Redman, who recently spoke at the Chamber’s Leadership Series event, and several other Hampton Roads Wounded Warriors participate in the outing, filling the fourth spot on many of the businesses teams. All enjoyed the gorgeous weather and making connections on the immaculate greens and well-placed bunkers. Box lunches and beverages were served before the 11:30am shotgun start and the event concluded with a dinner reception with awards and a silent auction that raised more than $1,500 for the Wounded Warriors Foundation.
Congratulations to the following winners:
First Place – Bailey Parker Construction (55)
Brian Amrhein; Sang Han and Mike Zuchowski
Second Place – Chartway Federal Credit Union (57)
Bill Donigan; Ron Burniske; Mark Llobell and Mike Perkins
Third Place – ADS, Inc. (58)
Heath Shulman; Henry Wong; Rob Burke and Jim Brown
Closest to the Pin on hole #7 – Mark Llabell
Closest to the Pin on hole #13 – Ian Checcio

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t give a shout out to the losing team, Sitcon who were given tennis balls!
