LEHMAN, Pa. — The Penn State Wilkes‑Barre Alumni Constituent Society hosted its 24th annual “Masters” Golf Tournament at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountain Top on July 12. The tournament raised more than $7,500, which will support a variety of programs for Penn State Wilkes‑Barre students, including scholarships, student activities, THON and other student initiatives.

One hundred thirty-six golfers took to the greens, with captain Jim Gattuso’s team, including Ray Ostroski, Brett Ostroski and Mason Gattuso, taking the top prize. Each received a cash prize for winning the tournament.

Golfers also had the chance to win various hole‑in‑one prizes, including a Super Bowl trip for two with airfare, Callaway golf clubs, a $500 gift card to golf clothier Zero Restriction, and a choice of an HP laptop or tablet. Other contests included "closest to the pin," longest drive for men and women, and the chance for participants to double their money by “holding the green.” The tournament also featured a raffle with gift certificates and prizes donated by local businesses.
