17th ANNUAL “FORE A VERY GOOD CAUSE” GOLF TOURNAMENT-JULY 22, 2019
It was all sun and games as 92 Camp friends teed off for the 17th annual “Fore A Very Good Cause” Golf Tournament on July 22nd at the historic Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, Conn.
After an energizing brunch to kick-start the day, players were welcomed by Hole in the Wall Board Chair Ray Lamontagne who recognized Title Sponsor Travelers and thanked fellow outing Co-Chairs Doug Cannaliato and Dennis Poster for their leadership. Players were reminded of the impact their generosity and participation has on the children and families served by Hole in the Wall as camper Dad, Andy, shared his family’s journey during his daughter Karina’s diagnosis of Stage 4 Medulloblastoma brain cancer. Andy described how a pediatric cancer diagnosis takes its toll on the whole family, and with them every step of the way has been Camp.
Inspired by the Lubowicki family, players revved up their carts and headed to their starting holes. Throughout the round, golfers refueled on frozen desserts courtesy of Shake Shack and an endless supply of sugary and salty treats and cold beverages thanks to Camp’s Snack Mobile. On The Spot Photos snapped pictures of each foursome and gifted players custom commemorative outing magnets in minutes. Camp’s Key Corner provided players with the opportunity to try their luck by purchasing a key that might later unlock tickets behind home plate to see the Yankees take on their rivals, the Boston Red Sox, at an upcoming game in the Bronx.
As players wrapped up their day on the links, it was time to kick back and enjoy the evening reception featuring passed hors d’oeuvres, a raw bar, carving stations and buffet at the Clubhouse. A spirited putting contest provided some friendly competition, as did the auction which culminated with a surprise 2020 US OPEN package available to the highest bidder!
No player left empty handed, as goody bags filled with Camp-branded Titleist golf balls and koozie mugs awaited each player as the festivities concluded. All of the generosity and support from the day resulted in $182,000 raised to support our mission.
