Plasterer’s Union Local 8 is holding its 15th Annual Golf Outing on June 20, 2009.  For the second year in a row, proceeds from the day on the links will benefit the patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. 
“We’re honored to have been chosen as the benefactor of this great event,” said Magee’s Assistant Vice President of Development, Mark Chilutti. “Last year, the Plasterer’s Union raised $16,000 for our patients through the golf outing.”   

The golf outing, which is a shot-gun start, (and scramble format) will be held again this year at the John F. Byrne Golf Course at 9550 Leon Street in Northeast Philadelphia. Check-in time starts at 8:00am. 

Following golf at 3:00 pm, the Plasterers will host a BBQ at their headquarters, McCormick Hall, at 2535 Orthodox Street, also in Northeast Philadelphia.   

The cost per golfer is $125.00 and includes golf, cart, refreshments on the course and the BBQ. However, tickets to attend the BBQ (which include food and beverages) are only $50.00.
