Fundraiser Outing Combines Golf And Octoberfest Celebration

An Octoberfest with German specialties, fall foliage and golf – now that is a unique combination. That’s what to expect at the third Annual House of Good Shepherd Golftoberfest on Tues., Sept. 27.

The outing takes place at the picturesque Shawnee Inn Golf Resort in Shawnee-on-Delaware, Pa., located along the Delaware River.

Check in and breakfast begins at 8 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The four-person scramble format concludes with a gourmet lunch, prizes, an oom-pah band, Oktoberfest beer and other surprises. 

“This is a really enjoyable golf outing that’s taken on a life of its own,” said Dave Woods, director of Development at The House. “We have a lot of fun but most importantly it’s about raising funds for a very special program here at The House.”

Proceeds from the event benefit The House’s Shepherd’s Fund, which provides financial support to residents whose financial resources have become depleted over time. The fund ensures that residents will never be asked to leave The House due to inadequate funds.
