Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy held its 40th Annual Harry G. Johansing Golf Tournament and Dinner this past weekend. To celebrate the landmark year, FSHA honored five men who were integral to the beginnings of the golf tournament: John Krappman (in place of his father, Andy Krappman), Angelo Mozilo, Bob Pernecky, Mike Smith and Tim Smith.

The event was also spread over two days, a tournament first. On Sunday evening, more than 100 guests attended a cocktail party and dinner at Oakmont Country Club. At the dinner, folks bid on live auction items (including a much-wanted bobble head of Sr. Carolyn McCormack, O.P. and Sr. Celeste Marie Botello, O.P.), took part in a jewelry raffle, and of course, a paddle pledge. All money raised goes to scholarship money for FSHA students with financial need. “Nothing is better than helping these young ladies and their families,” said Honorary Chair Mike Smith. One such student had the chance to thank the crowd at the dinner on Sunday night. “Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy has been a school that has enriched me in countless ways,” said senior Rebecca Calix, “Without the benefit of the Johansing scholarship, my dream of attending Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy would never have been realized. I will never forget your generosity.”

On Monday, golfers took to the links at Oakmont, teeing off at 11:00 a.m. Golfers had a chance to putt for cash, double their money with a “hit the heart” hole, and try to for a hole in one for a new Prius (donated by Mike Smith of Bob Smith Toyota). Lunch was served on the course, and all the players met up afterward for drinks and hors d’oeuvres on Oakmont’s patio. There, players received prizes, including former Dodger Adrian Beltre for longest drive, and celebrated a fun day on the golf course.
