On May 1, 97.5 The Fanatic’s Mike Missanelli hosted his 5th annual Golf Outing at Seaview Golf Club, located outside of Atlantic City. Benefiting the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, the Missanelli Golf Outing gave Mike’s listeners the chance to see how good his game actually is!
Missanelli was in a foursome with the DiAngelus family, who donated $3,000 to play with Mike, and Mike was disappointed they didn’t win the top foursome prize.
The golfers were joined by special guests Jeremiah Trotter (former Eagles linebacker and Fanatic host), Fran Dunphy (Temple University men’s basketball coach), Phil Martelli (St. Joseph’s University men’s basketball coach) and Tom McGinnis (Philadelphia 76ers radio play-by-play).

The first annual SuperFest-Special Bowl was hosted by Showstoppers Plus at St. Joseph’s High School in Metuchen, NJ. The event, which brought three area high schools together—St. Joseph’s, Hunterdon and North Brunswick Township, raised money for Funabilities, an elementary school program promoting balance in life, and for Life Without Limitations, a program that addresses important issues facing high school students. There was a host of exciting activities throughout the day.
Former America’s Got Talent contestant John Pizzi kicked off the entertainment with his ventriloquism and comedic talents. Gabe Hurley, a St. Joseph’s graduate who lost his vision in a car accident, rocked out on acoustic and electric guitars. The popular melodies that he played on the electric guitar earned him a standing ovation. Closing out the entertainment was a talent show that pitted skilled contestants against one another. A young man who played the violin came out on top in the competition, but the consensus was that everyone was a winner that day.
Bert Baron, host of Jersey Central on WCTC-AM, and WMGQ-FM personality John Patterson did an excellent job as emcees for the event. Adding to the excitement was a meatball contest, which was a big hit! WMGQ-FM’s prize wheel offered participants a spin for a chance to take home some MAGIC 98.3 FM memorabilia. Overall, it was a great event that brought the community together for a very worthy cause.
