Fore! Recovery Invitational 2021
Over 100 players, volunteers, & friends spent a beautiful Wednesday at Lakewood Golf Club on October 13th for the 33rd Annual Fore! Recovery Invitational Presented by the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust. As one of the most unique golf tournaments in the city, the Fore! Recovery Invitational is truly a golf and food experience. Food, food, and more food! Players and friends kicked off the day with a delicious lunch of steak sandwiches from Desi Vega’s Steakhouse, wings from Hooters, and Bloody Marys at the Blue Williams, L.L.P. Bloody Mary Bar!
On the course, players enjoyed food from Bourbon House, Chef Ron’s Gumbo Stop, Jambalaya Girl, Mandina’s, and Quarter View. To quench their thirst, players stopped for Margaritas at the Margarita Beach Bar and John Daly’s at the NOLA Ya’t Club Bar. For anyone still hungry, Southerns was on-site serving Chicken Sandwiches during the Awards Party!
Due to the unfortunate weather on September 29th, the Fore! Recovery Invitational Golf Tournament had to be postponed from its original September 30th date. The course at Lakewood Golf Club was soaked, receiving over 5 inches of rain. However, even two weeks later and on a Wednesday, this was our BEST YEAR EVER!
Many thanks to all of our sponsors, especially to our Presenting Sponsor Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust! A special shout for their involvement this year goes to the UNO Golf Team, our UPS Volunteers, and all of our in-kind donors!
