Klinger's golf tournament benefits Children's Hospital

LOWER ALSACE TWP., Pa. - Golfers from Berks County took a successful swing at raising money for The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The folks from Klinger's on Carsonia in Lower Alsace Township hosted a golf benefit in September, and Tuesday, the restaurant presented a check to CHOP for $5,600.

The event was done in honor of Nicholas Klinger. He passed away at the age of five after getting care from the hospital for about two years.

"It's just so touching to the heart knowing that so many people care, and not just about our child, but, kids should not have to go through this. It's just a horrible disease," said Marlin Klinger.

Organizers said they plan to make the golf benefit an annual event.
