St. Jude Golf Club is inviting golfers and companies in the Western Pa. community, to join in the effort as it hosts its inaugural charitable golf tournament – the St. Jude Golf Club Hope Classic – on Friday, August 26th, presented by the Frank B. Fuhrer Wholesale Company. Tournament proceeds will benefit another very special “St. Jude,” the internationally recognized St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The hospital, while based in Memphis, Tenn., treats patients from across Western Pa. and around the country, and was ranked the No. 1 children’s cancer hospital in the nation, according to the 2010-11 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings published by U.
