∑ Deer Run Golf Golf Club, Berlin, Maryland: Raised $1,500 by donating a portion of each full-price greens fee in the month of October to the Greater Ocean City Disaster Relief Fund. Also, three teams of golfers from the club paid $75 each to participate in the Ocean City Golf Getaway "Golf Course Challenge." All entry fees from the event went to disaster relief funds. Deer Run generated $900 through its entry fees, so $2,400 was the total the club contributed.
∑ Cranbury Golf Club, West Windsor, New Jersey: Raised $6,280 for the Todd M.Beamer Foundation (www.beamerfoundation.org) through its annual Fall Finale event,this year on November 3.

Beamer was a resident of Cranbury, New Jersey. He was one of the passengers on the airliner that crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside after he and others rushed the hijackers when they figured out what was happening.
