During dinner the event was wrapped up with prizes for Closest to Pin (ladies/ Ginny Sunstrum), Closest to Pin (mens - Bill Stewart) and longest drive (mens - Scott Burk). Winner of the 50/50 draw was Al Craft ($145). Winner of the 4some at Innisbrook was Ginny Sunstrum.

Special thanks to Rita Dietz and Noi Moreau for handling the sale of 50/50 tickets and the putting challenge AND to Caileigh Burgess and AJ Burgess for assisting with the morning registration. Further thanks to Stan Lapidus for arranging the presentation provided.

Cupcakes with the GHSC Logo were the parting gift to all those in attendance.
