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).
