Catholic Charities Golf Tournament a Success!

A Great Day for a Swing and a Prayer! 

FCC News Desk

Catholic Charities held its 14th Annual Golf Tournament at Fox Hopyard Golf Club in East Haddam and it was one of the best tournaments on record!  Bishop Michael Cote, who was an honorary guest, participated in the Tournament.  Other members of the clergy who played in the Tournament were Monsignor Les Janik, Father Kevin Reilly, and Father Greg Galvin.

All participants enjoyed an amazing catered lunch sponsored by A Beautiful Company and Cahill & Associates Financial Services, LLC, before brief remarks from Bishop Cote and taking to the course.

Bishop Cote thanked everyone for supporting Catholic Charities and the work that Ed Tessman and his staff do every day.  Bishop commented on how the support for this tournament grows every year and this year seems to be the largest one ever.

Over 40 raffle prizes were drawn which included a golf putter, private golf lesson from a PGA Pro, golf for four at two different clubs, bottles of wine, an Amazon Echo and a Sonos home sound system.  In addition, the top three teams were awarded gift certificates to spend at the Fox Hopyard Pro Shop.  Prizes were also awarded for the Longest Drive for men and women, sponsored by St. Mary Church of the Visitation in Clinton and Closest-to-the-Pin, sponsored by Charter Oak Federal Credit Union, Waller, Smith & Palmer, P.C., and Brown Jacobson, P.C.  All participants received an embossed golf shoe bag, filled with items to make the day of golfing more enjoyable, donated by the New London law firm of Conway, Londregan, Sheehan, & Monaco, P.C.

The success of the event was due to an outpouring of support from local businesses, golfers throughout Eastern Connecticut and many parishes throughout our Diocese.

Corporate sponsors included ShopRite Stores and the Capano Family, Conway, Londregan, Sheehan & Monaco. P.C., Knights of Columbus Supreme Council, Derek S. Pirruccello CFP Wealth Management Advisor Merrill Lynch, Mystic Aquarium, RAD Computing, MJ Sullivan, and James Carboni Plumbing & Heating.

Plans for Catholic Charities’ 15th Annual Golf Tournament, scheduled for Wednesday, September 16, 2020, are already underway!
