Friends, donors and sponsors came together on March 24 to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWCT at the Nutmeg Bowl in Fairfield. The success of the day only added to the fun as kids and adults donned those attractive shoes and headed to their lanes. There were no perfect games, but lots of laughs, raffle prize winners, spares, strikes and only a few gutter balls!

Our friends and supporters do love their golf, so we accommodated them by hosting a 2nd tournament this year. The venue, Burning Tree Country Club in Greenwich was spectacular and the course was challenging, even for the scratch golfers in the group.

Whether your car starts or not, donating it can certainly start something in your community.
