Golf for a Cause
If you’ve got a great swing and looking for a little tee time, why not do it for a good cause? The Make-A-Wish Foundation and Easter Seals will hold their golf classics this month to raise funds for their worthwhile programs.
Need to take a long weekend? Then why not head over to H. Smith Richardson Golf Course on Monday, July 16th to benefit Make-A-Wish. The cost is $195 and registration begins at 11:00 a.m. with a tee-off at 12:30 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres, buffet lunch and open bar will be available at Brennan’s Sheeban.
The foundation has been helping kids with serious medical conditions realize their wildest dreams. It all started in 1980 when a little boy with leukemia dreamed of becoming a police officer. With the help of his local station, he was sworn in as an honorary member of the force. In just the last 15 years, the organization’s Connecticut chapter has raised over $275,000 to make dreams just like that one come true.
For more information or to register, please call Scott Johnston at 203.521.4679 or by email at email@example.com.
Take another day off from work and call it a mental health day. On Monday, July 30th, Easter Seals of Coastal Fairfield County will host their golf outing at Silvermine Gold Club in Norwalk. Beginning at 11:00 a.m. and running until 6:30 p.m., there will be a golf tournament, putting contest, lunch, dinner, and an auction.
Easter Seals provides opportunities to grow and develop for those individuals with special needs. The Connecticut chapter of Easter Seals began in 1935 as the Connecticut Society for Crippled Children and Adults. By 1950, they included summer camps for kids with disabilities and by 2011 instilled a program for kids with autism.
A golf package ticket for the classic costs $225. You can register online at ct.easterseals.com or call 203-388-2192. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
