This past Monday, ABA and supporters from every spectrum of the baking community came out in full force for the Ronald McDonald House Deborah Paterakis Golf Classic. Each year, this golf event receives an amazing amount of support from the baking industry in terms of sponsorships and participants – and this year was no different, raising an astounding $465,000 with 144 players and 160 sponsors. This year marks the tournament’s 32nd anniversary. The Paterakis family has long supported the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) of Baltimore, as well as Houses in each of the communities they serve.
Every year, Bill Paterakis of Northeast Foods, also representing H&S Bakery, Inc. and Schmidt Baking Company, continues to put his heart and soul into raising funds for RMHC of Baltimore with the golf tournament and the campaign for the new RMH. “Hope has a new address,” and it is thanks Bill’s hard work, dedication and love for the children of the RMH, as well as the baking industry community and friends that come out to support him and this wonderful cause.
