Around 50 Keepers and friends gathered at the Chatter Chabad in Chevy Chase for the Maariv Service and this year’s Keepers Last Supper Celebration. With the help of Reb Alan Bubes we were able to konvince Tony Kornheiser and Gary Williams to provide the evening’s entertainment with a Q & A kovering an array of topics of interest to our guys.
Tony and Gary handled a barrage of sports questions from our guys and the discussions lasted over an hour. Most interestingly it seemed that two-thirds of the questions were about Terp Basketball in particular and College and Pro Hoops in general, which meant the lions share of the responses were in Gary’s court.
The Chatter food was fabulous….including the crab cakes and pigs in a blanket, standards at all Jewish celebratory functions and a robust low-calorie dinner buffet and some sweeeeeet mini-desserts…….
After dinner we had an informal presentation of Woodmont’s hosting of the 2020 USGA Women’s Am from Double-D and Billy Burak. They discussed the rationale of the club in pursuing this prestigious event and the opportunity to support the effort through the 1913 Campaign. Over $80,000 has been raised already from Woodmont members with a goal of getting 150 families to support the effort. You can get more information on this campaign by reaching out to Ron Bubes and Joann DiMeglio, the committee chairs.
Then of course it was time to give out the hardware from this year’s Keepers Kompetitions.
All in all the Keepers Last Supper was a festive evening of celebration of our 11th Year of The Keepers. Special thanks to Konnor Farrell for all his work through the year. We also thank the folks at Chatter for hosting this event and Tony Kornheiser and Gary Williams for lending their expertise to the evening’s program.
