Due to the heavy rain forecast for tomorrow (October 14), we have made the difficult decision to cancel the William J. Cooke Scholarship Golf Tournament Fundraiser. We understand that this is disappointing news but the course conditions are expected to be unplayable.
In lieu of the golf tournament, we are inviting everyone to a cornhole and college football watch party. From 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the Union Hall (4369 Richmond Street Philadelphia, PA 19137).
This event is free and open to all members. We will have cornhole courts set up, and the TV showing college football games. We will provide pizza, wings, and beer. Come to celebrate the tremendous success of the Cooke Scholarship with your Union brothers and sisters.
