The 55th Murphy Invitational golf outing at River Bend Golf Course on Sunday, September 9, 2012 at 8:00. The Murphy Invitational was started 55 years ago by the late Richard Murphy and his friend, the late Frank Celarek. They started the tournament with just a handful of friends for fun and to raise money for local charities. Today with over 180 golfers, Steve Murphy and brother, Ryan carry on the tradition.

Over the years, the event has been able to contribute to a number of worthwhile and grateful charities in the Fort Wayne area. Some of these charities are Matthew 25, Frank J. Celarek Scholarship Fund, The Breast Cancer Society, and the Dan Osborne Scholarship fund.

The golf tournament is all word of mouth, with no advertising and the golfers consist of almost all Murphy and Celarek family members and friends that keep coming back year after year. Some golfers travel as far as AZ every year to participate. Please stop by and check out this wonderful event or contact Amy Stefanek for additional information at 224-829-9990.
