Foundation Charity Classic a Huge Success
Thank you to all who participated and donated
We hope you enjoyed this year's event. Hartford Golf Club is an outstanding facility and plays a great host for us each year. Everyone agreed that the course was in pristine condition.
Those who had a chance to interact with some of the golfers who benefit from the Foundation’s grant programs, must have felt proud of where their investment was going. Those who spoke at dinner from The First Tee of Connecticut, Golfers In Motion, and the Connecticut PGA Junior Golf Association all expressed how golf, and the Foundation, has truly made an impact on their lives.
Without the support of the sponsors and golfers, this event would not be possible. Through their generosity,the Foundation was able to raise $23,000 through the Silent Auction, Raffle, and Max Moola contest alone. These funds will enable us to continue to financially support not only the programs whose benefactors spoke at dinner, but many others.
On behalf of the Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation, we want thank this year's sponsors and participants for making the event a huge success. We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s event.
