On Monday, September 26th St Gregory’s held their 19th Annual Golf
Outing at Talamore Country Club, in Ambler PA. It was a day filled with
amazing weather, great golf, comradery, and many laughs! We had close to
75 golfers join in on the fun this year. The event started with registration and
a delicious breakfast buffet filled with all your favorite breakfast items.
Thank you to our breakfast sponsor F.C. Kerbeck, who graciously has been
our breakfast sponsor for many years. Der Torkom alongside with Yeretzgin
Shoger led us in prayer and promoted fellowship amongst the competitors.
Thank you to Gary Barbera our ‘Hole in One’ sponsor, sadly he went home
with his sweet-looking JEEP, one of these years it’s going to happen.
However, we had not one, but two golfers win the putting contest.
Congratulations to Larry Der Hagopian, and Sue Beeson! They won rounds
of golf at Talamore Country Club so they can practice and win again next
year! Thank You to Dr. Jack Kazandjian with Premier Orthopaedics for
being the Longest Drive Sponsor, which was won by Sue Beeson (Women),
and Mike Gorman(ian) (Men’s). In addition, the winner of the closest to the
hole was Wally Stronski (4’ 7”).
After a beautiful day out on the course, our hungry golfers enjoyed cold
drinks and a fantastic lunch and dessert buffet. Our lunch sponsor this year
was SHOX Medical. Steve and Diane Hox generously have been great
supporters of the Golf Outing, we thank them for their continuous generosity
During lunch, we had some fun with a LIVE auction, some
items were a 12-person party at Top Golf, and a Social membership to
Talamore or Applecross Country Club. We had 14 different Chinese raffles
that were a hit, some prizes were wine and liquor baskets, Ladies’ Costume
Jewelry donated by Arthur and Tania Selverian, Life-Time Fitness
membership, GC to a Hair Salon, Lilly Pulitzer basket, Custom Golf themed
Embroidery by our very own Talene Shirozian with Everything Hye,
Souboreg trays from our very own Ladies Guild, foursome to Wedgwood
Golf Course donated by the Santerian Family and an Arbonne beauty kit and
GC for services by our very own esthetician Donna Walter, and so much
more! To top off all the fun, a 50/50 cash raffle was the prize to win!
Congratulations to the Ishkahanian brothers, Ara and Mano! Though we are
pretty sure Aram Hovagimian should get something for it too.
Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to those that participated!
What’s left … would you like to know who won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place?
Coming in at 1st place with -60 (-11) Kirk Karagelian, Mark Karagelian,
Charlie O’Donnell, and Peter Karagelian. 2nd place with -63 (-8) went to

around the corner in 3rd place with -64 (-7) Viken Vartanian, Vrej Vartanian,
Rob Shaw and Tom Kennedy. Congratulations to all the winners!
Most importantly, this day would not be at all possible without the
unwavering support from our event sponsor, Primary Electric, Richard
Stepanian Jr. and Sr. Their continuous support of St Gregory’s and the Golf
Outing year after year is nothing short of inspiring! Their generosity is to be
applauded and our hope is that it inspires others to give as graciously as they do.
To our Hole sponsors, some are new ones and some of you have been
sponsors from the start, either way, your support is appreciated more than
you know, and your hole signs add a bit of excitement to the round.
To our committee and volunteers, we thank you for the most precious
thing, your time! Whether soliciting prizes, coordinating holes and
foursomes, getting sponsorships, manning the contests at the holes and
selling raffle tickets that day, it all takes time and we couldn’t appreciate you
Thank you, Arthur and Tania Selverian, Rita Selverian, Rose
Jehanian, Helen Guveyian, Veronica Babayan, Ed Papazian, Gary Papazian,
Maryann Karagelian and Lydia Arakelian. Your love for our event and
beloved Church is remarkable, thank you.
Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the golf outing, plans are
already underway to make it an amazing event! Our hope is to have your
continued support, gain new players of all ages, add new volunteers to our
committee, new sponsorships and of course new winners! See you next
