Highlights from the 2018 Gorman Classic

The 30th Annual Avenues/ Gorman Golf, Tennis and Paddle Classic was held at the Park Ridge Country Club on July 23 2018 and raised a record high of $220,000.  There were 144 golfers selling out the golf portion of the event. Newly added this year was a Paddle competition which combined with Tennis had 32 participants.

Honored at this year’s event was the family of Vivien and Bill Gorman, who partnered with Avenues to begin the golf event 30 years ago.  A video to honor the couple was played for guests and their daughter, Peggy Bjelopetrovich and granddaughter Becky Thalmann spoke on behalf of the family.

Ann Marie Ehrlich, Vice President of Development for Avenues was honored for her 40 years of dedication to Avenues and her 30 years of planning the Avenues/ Gorman Classic.

Funds raised will help to ensure the comfort and safety of the residents of Avenues which include roofing, HVAC, electrical maintenance and a new fire alarm system.  During the paddle raise at dinner guests learned how their gifts will help to make a house a home.

Thank you to all of the sponsors and attendees and a special thank you to Steve Wilson and the golf committee for making this year such a success!
