Blending the German fare of Octoberfest with a day of golf on the scenic Delaware River, The House of the Good Shepherd hosts its 3rd Annual Golftoberfest on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
The outing takes place at the picturesque Shawnee Inn Golf Resort in nearby Shawnee-on-Delaware, Pa. The area is known for crisp autumns with striking fall foliage.
Check in and breakfast begins at 8 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The 4-person scramble format concludes with a gourmet lunch, prizes, an oom-pah band, Oktoberfest beer, and other surprises.
“This is a really enjoyable golf outing that’s taken on a life of its own,” said Dave Woods, Director of Development at The House. “We have a lot of fun but most importantly it’s about raising funds for a very special program here at The House.”
Proceeds from the event benefit The House’s Shepherd’s Fund, which provides financial support to residents whose financial resources have become depleted over time. The fund ensures that residents will never be asked to leave The House due to inadequate funds.
