On a sunny and windy day at Sunnyside Country Club on October 10th, during the 11th annual Henkels & McCoy Golf Outing, Stephen Morton sunk a hole in one! He was on the 17th hole of the course, with 190 yards between him and the hole, and as he hit the ball he told the other guys on his team, “Man I hope it makes the green!” As he walked away he heard cheering, when he turned around to see people yelling at him that he had in fact made a hole in one! And not only does Mr. Morton win bragging rights, thanks to the charity event and Fred Beans Automotive for sponsoring the hole in one prize, he also won a two year lease on a brand new Ford!
This week Fred Beans was proud to be able to hand Stephen Morton from Reading Equipment Company, the keys to his brand new 2017 Ford Escape. His wife and daughter were there to support him, as well as the folks over at Henkels & McCoy, Fred Beans, and the charity Covenant House of Philadelphia, which was the charity the golf outing was supporting.
Henkels & McCoy have been holding this golf outing for the past 11 years to help support Covenant House. ‘Established in 1999, services began at Covenant House Pennsylvania with a Community Outreach Center where young people were offered a place to eat, and get referrals for more complex needs such as housing and medical care. They are the largest private child welfare agency in the Delaware Valley, and the largest provider of services to homeless and runaway youth in Philadelphia.’ Over the past 11 years, this event has raised over $1 million, with this year’s event earning over $300,000. Fred Beans Automotive has been donating to the event from the beginning and are proud to be able to present the first hole in one vehicle to date.
