TCORS recently held its 22nd Annual Golf Outing to help raise donations for two local nonprofit organizations. The outing was held at Pequot Golf Club in Stonington, Connecticut on October 6th and yielded more than 100 attendees in total throughout the day.
More than 80 golfers participated in this year’s golf scramble to raise money for Child & Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut and Waterford Country School. From our participants’ generation contributions and our Firm matching, we were able to raise more than $5,000 in donations.
During the presentation of awards ceremony, Rick Calvert, CEO of Child & Family Agency, thanked TCORS and those who donated toward the outing for their support of CFA.
“The generous donation of funds from the TCORS Golf Outing will provide critical support to Child & Family Agency’s child care, school-based health center, counseling, and after-school services for the over 10,000 children and their families we serve each year. The funds from the Golf Outing will soften the blow of the current and pending budget cuts from State subsidy grants, United Way and other funding sources,” said Calvert.
Child and Family Agency’s primary mission is to promote the well-being and development of all children and their families, in particular to give priority to the unmet needs of children lacking physical, emotional and intellectual care and nurturing.
Bill Martin, Executive Director of Waterford Country School, explained that given their funding structure, WFC would not be able to continue to offer many of their programs without the support of organizations and individuals within the community.
“We were thrilled to be selected by TCORS as a beneficiary of their golf tournament and every dollar we receive will go directly towards the support of our programs,” said Martin.
For more than 90 years, Waterford Country School has been dedicated to doing whatever it takes to enrich the lives of children and strengthen families through specialized programs resources and community services.
While the main purpose of the outing is to raise funds for our selected charities, there is also a friendly competitiveness present between teams. Awards are given to first, second and third place; for the longest drive; closest to the pin and for second to longest drive.
Alex Maresca, Mark Vashington, Michael Caron and John Rubrich of First American Title Insurance Company received first place; Mel Wiese, John Erickson, Simon Little and Pat Papuga came in second; and Tom Riley, Chris Gauthier, Jeff Riley and John Casey came in third.
As an added bonus for those who attended, Managing Partner Glenn Carberry distributed signed copies of his new book “Epic Destinations,” which includes personal travel articles written by Attorney Carberry on more than 100 destinations.
Reflecting on the outing, Partner Jerry O’Malley said, “This was our 22nd year and it was as successful as ever. The outing was a nice gathering of clients and friends on a beautiful day. Once again, through the generosity of the participants and the firm’s matching funds, we were able to support two local and well-deserving social service nonprofits, Child & Family Agency and the Waterford Country School. Both provide important services to children and families throughout southeastern Connecticut. We’re looking forward to next year!”
