Tim Bannon Golf Tourney This Saturday

District Judge Jim Stocklas has responded to my post concerning this Friday's benefit concert for the family of fallen Nazareth police chief Ruch. Another benefit, in the form of a golf tournament, is scheduled this Saturday for retired public employee Tim Bannon.

This worthy cause deserves a separate post. Here's what Judge Stocklas tells us.


Tim Bannon worked in parks and retired because of his illness several years ago.

He currently is in Good Shepard and still volunteers at the information desk at Bethlehem city hall a couple days a week.

A group of his friends heard about some bills that apparently aren't covered or the need for some other expenses and are having a golf tournament this weekend at
Bethlehem golf club.

They set up a Foundation (The Bannon Foundation) and will help to defray any additional expenses Timmy may have in the future. His good friend Paul Hanchick(Bimby) owner of Hanchick and Learch Used cars in Bethlehem township is on the board.

If someone is interested in making a donation or still playing in the golf outing they can contact him at 484-357-6817 or Jim Hintze at 312-560-0444. Hole sponsors start at $100.00 bronze, 250 silver, or $500 for gold. Golf is $100.00 per player.

Shotgun start at 1pm with dinner at the BVFHA afterwards. Some great prizes ie: tv's callaway golf bags, equipment, tools, golf clothing ect. have already been donated for give aways. It is a scramble format and there is still some room for golfers. You also can contact me at my office for any additional information, but I think I covered it all. Thanks to all who can help -- Judge Stocklas 610-691-1501

Correction: The golf tournament is on Sunday, not Saturday. I apologize for any confusion I caused.

just an update on the weekend. the golf outing was a hugh success. Timmy was there the whole day and was named mayor for the day by Mayor John Callahan. Great food and hundreds of prizes were given away at the Bethlehem club following the golf. Everyone had a great time while helping a friend.
