PGA and LPGA Golfers Help Raise Funds for Seniors in the Greater Philadelphia Region

Recently, Jay Sigel from the Senior PGA Tour and Stephanie George from the LPGA Futures Tour played alongside local golfers in the third annual Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation Golf Classic at the Huntingdon Valley Country Club.

The Golf Classic was a chance to enjoy a great day of golf during the best part of the season on a historic course, get to know two of the game’s major players and contribute to the well-being of seniors in the Greater Philadelphia region. The Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation advances the Wesley Enhanced Living continuing care retirement communities’ vision and mission through philanthropy. 

Jay Sigel and Stephanie George are returning to play in the Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation Golf Classic after participating in the tournament for the past two years.

“I am thrilled to be returning to the Golf Classic,” said Sigel. “Not only does the Huntingdon Valley Country Club provide a wonderful course to play on, but I am passionate about the Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation and their mission to improve the lives of seniors.”

This year Sigel, who is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder that occurred last spring, will not be playing a full round of golf with just one foursome. Instead, Sigel will spend time with all groups of golfers and provide them with golf tips. Before golfing starts at noon, Sigel will talk about the consideration of golf becoming a part of the Olympics, and why this sport deserves to be highlighted on an international level.

The Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation Golf Classic features 27 challenging holes on three different courses. The golf tournament featured a lunch, a grand cocktail party and an auction. The auction included a rare Championship Flag autographed by Tiger Woods. A raffle for the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop gave Golf Classic players a chance to win a diamond necklace from Kelmer Jewelers or a $500 gas card.

All proceeds from the Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation Golf Classic benefit older adults who live in Wesley Enhanced Living retirement communities throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. The Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation provides in excess of $1 million of charity care per year for seniors who need it the most.
