On Monday, May 5, the Floral Park Lions Club held its annual Mickey Finn Swing Into Spring golf tournament. The tournament is named in honor of Mickey Finn, a former Lion and a leader in the community. Fifty-two enthusiastic golfers enjoyed a sunny day at the North Shore Towers Golf Course.
The day began with breakfast in the clubhouse, and continued with 18 holes using a “best ball format” and lunch at the turns. The day concluded with dinner at Crabtree’s Restaurant in Floral Park.
Dinner included an awards ceremony and a raffle of prizes that were donated by local businesses. All of the profits from the outing will go to charity.
