The Dickie DiSabatino Classic outing, which raises funds for the Cancer Support Community of Delaware, has been a popular event for two decades, and this year’s was no exception. Named after the late Richard “Dickie” DiSabatino, who was a founding member of the CSCDE Board, the 21st annual golf outing took place at Bidermann Golf Club on July 18th, with cocktails and dinner at The Vicmead Hunt Club.
Most golf outing after parties culminate with a nod to the winners in an awards ceremony, then folks head home. But CSCDE offered up a tasty barbecue dinner and silent auction, and they invited the local classic rock band The Cameltones to perform for the party goers. The Cameltones have performed at the Dickie DiSabatino Classic for years and essentially have become one of the main attractions at the after party. “They really help keep the party going,” remarked CSCDE Events Coordinator Becky Phillips. Band members include Rob Grant, Roger Kirtley, Sam Starr, Brad Newsom, Kurt Houf, Kevin Kelleher and Kevin McCabe. CSCDE, who provides statewide services and programs to people affected by cancer, raised some $60,000 at this year’s golf outing.
