2015 Golf Tournament Wrap-up

Once again the sun was shining on the New Haven Country Club when we held our annual golf tournament on August 10. Thank you to all who sponsored, golfed or just came for the food, drink and camaraderie.

As much as everyone enjoys the day, of course the ultimate goal is to raise funds for the mentoring programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut. I am pleased to announce that we have surpassed last year’s record breaker and netted over $75,000!

Congratulations to the winning foursomes:

1st Place Gross: Stefan Cherneski, Jason Mudd, Robin Mayo and Kevin Donovan.

1st Place Net: Jeff Meotti, Pete Thomas, Pat Duff and Renee Rossi

Closest to the Hole: John Waddock & Mary Purcell

Longest Drive: Ryan Faukingham & Renee Rossi

Vin Crudo is a long time board member who, more than 20 years ago, took the event from good to great, and never wavered in his loyalty to it and to us. Although Vin suffered a tragic accident which left him unable to walk, he continues to champion Big Brothers Big Sisters in a multitude of ways. Last year we created an award to recognize his loyalty to our mission.

“The Spirit of Vin Crudo” plaque was presented to Patrick Duff in recognition of his many years of faithful assistance to BBBS with this tournament. Every year he solicits golfers, arrives with raffle prizes and, most importantly, acts as our very entertaining live auctioneer. A well-deserved honor.

Thank you all for your support of this tournament and of Big Brothers Big Sisters SWCT.

See you next year!

Ellen Tracy, Executive Director
