Catholic Charities 15th Annual Golf Tournament: A Great Day for a Swing and a Prayer

Catholic Charities held its 15th annual golf tournament at the Norwich Golf Course, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, and a great and safe time was had by all.

During this trying time of social distancing, we gratefully were able to hold a fun but safe event for all of our 73 participants. Bishop Cote began the tournament by welcoming the golfers and also thanked sponsors for their support of Catholic Charities. Their participation will help the agency to continue its 99- year history of compassionate service in our communities.

Socially distanced yet delightful meal stations sponsored by A Beautiful Company, were located throughout the course. The day started off with hot dogs and beverages while Bishop Cote briefly delivered a thoughtful message before tee-off. Forty-four raffle prizes were available, including a Technique putter donated by Attorney Ralph Monaco, who has chaired the New London Advisory Board and has been instrumental in keeping the tournament going for 15 years.

Along with prizes for Hole- in-One sponsored by M.J. Sullivan, there were prizes for the Longest Drive for men and women sponsored by St. Patrick Mystic and Impellitteri- Malia Funeral Home and 18 Closest-to-the-Pin sponsored by Charter Oak Federal Credit Union, Waller, Smith & Palmer, P.C. St. Joseph Church and MahoneySabol.

The top two teams net and gross were awarded gift certificates as well to the Norwich Golf Course Pro Shop. Winners are posted on the course website at norwichgolf.com.

Catholic Charities would like to thank the Norwich Golf Course for helping put on this well-enjoyed event during these difficult times. Thanks, too, to the huge support from local businesses, golfers and the many parishes throughout the diocese. We are especially thankful to be able to host the tournament, as it is one of our major fundraisers. Unfortunately, because of Covid-19, we were unable to hold our 99th Anniversary Gala, but look forward to our 100th Anniversary Gala in 2021.

In a special way, Catholic Charities would like to thank the corporate sponsors who made this year’s tournament a huge success: Platinum Sponsor, ShopRite of Norwich and New London and the Capano Family, Gold Sponsor: Conway, Londregan, Sheehan & Monaco, P.C., Bronze Sponsors, RAD Computing, Castaldi Financial Solutions, Inc., and Crest Mechanical Services.

'Tis the Season for Giving!
Together, We Can Accomplish Great Things The holiday season of Thanksgiving and Christmas is coming upon us quickly and can be stressful for so many people.
