BFDH Golf Classic at historic Keney Park Golf Course

September 18, 2019

The Annual BFDH Golf Classic is an opportunity to pull back from day-to-day business and gain a little perspective. Members have the afternoon to network and discuss shared issues, or just socialize in a relaxed setting. Some of our best advocacy initiative and fundraising efforts have stemmed from a conversation out on the fairway. Registration for our 2019 event is now open and sponsorship opportunities are still available!
