TCORS Law Firm held its 27th Annual Golf Outing at Pequot Golf Club to raise funds for two local nonprofit organizations on October 7th. Thanks to participants’ and matching donations from the firm, more than $5,000 was raised during this year’s golf scramble, which drew in over 80 golfers and guests. Over the course of the last 27 years, the firm’s annual charitable golf outings have raised $120,000 to benefit area nonprofit organizations and charities. Representatives of numerous local businesses and organizations were also in attendance.
The two nonprofits selected as beneficiaries for 2022 were United Way of South Eastern CT (Gemma E. Moran Food Bank) and Waterford Country School. Representatives from the two nonprofits were in attendance. Christopher Lacey, the Executive Director of Waterford Country School, accepted a donation for $2,500. Dina Sears-Graves and Annie Stockton representatives from United Way of South Eastern CT both accepted the donation for $2,500.
