48th H.O.G. Tournament in 2018

by Jane Ahrens

The 48th H.O.G. Tournament was held at the Fishers Island Club to benefit the Island Health Project on Sunday, September 2, 2018. The net proceeds from the tournament support medical care for all Fishers Island residents and visitors.

Many thanks go to this year’s co-chairs – Bob and Margaret Warden, the many volunteers and the FIC. Golf teams of six are encouraged to dress up and have fun in the H.O.G. (Harbor Open Golf) Tournament!
