Pathways Links to the Heart Committee held its 7th annual Links to the Heart Golf Tournament

The Susanne Lussier Memorial Tournament

2019 event Co-Chairs, Gunilla and Tom Follett, proudly hosted Pathways’ 7th annual Links to the Heart Golf Tournament in memory of Suzanne Lussier on Monday, July 15.  Over 120 golfers enjoyed the newly-renovated holes on the renowned Stanford Golf while supporting Pathways in an overwhelmingly successful event.

Friends Kris Klint and Dodie Mullins delivered a special tribute.
