NEWPORT NEWS, VA –The 3rd Annual Langley for Families Charity Golf Classic successfully raised over $233,000, thanks to the generosity of many sponsors and participants. 140 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg, VA on September 11th to raise money and awareness for Hampton Roads charities.

“The support of our sponsors and participants makes the work of the Foundation possible,” said Foundation Chairman Fred Hagerman. “The money that we raise from events like this goes back into our communities to make a profound impact on people’s lives.”

In addition to golf, two impressive prizes were awarded to participants in the Shootout Challenge. The first was an all-expenses paid trip to Scotland and the second was a package to play in David Ortiz’ Celebrity Golf Classic in La Ramona, Dominican Republic.

To commemorate the anniversary of 9/11, a moment of silence was held for the victims and first responders. A $2,500 check was presented to Vigilant Watch, Inc. to provide support to first responders and their immediate families in Hampton Roads.
