HCRS Golf Tournament Raises Over $21,500

HCRS hosted its 11th annual Golf Tournament fundraiser at the beautiful Woodstock Country Club on June 15. A field of 89 players participated in the tournament, raising more than $21,500 for HCRS’ youth vocational program.

The first place team award went to Dr. Rick Marasa, Rich Lane, Tim Kangas, and Steve Birge. Second place went to Mike Lufkin, Marc Lambert, Chris Fuller, and Rob Fuller. Derek Paul, Ryan Paul, Ron Bixby, Curt McCuin won third place. The low score all-women’s team award went to Heather Koledo, Clare Gowen, Christine Campbell, and Eunice Bashaw. Winners of the longest drive award were Susan Hines and Chris Fuller; Sharon Gordon and Ken Boothby won the closest to the line awards.

HCRS would like to thank the numerous individuals, businesses, and organizations who generously supported this event. Without their contributions, this successful fundraiser would not have been possible. Key sponsors include:

Tournament sponsor: The Richards Group, Gold sponsors: Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC, People’s United Bank, Pareto Captive Services, and SymQuest. Silver sponsors: FirstLight and MVP Health Care. Bronze sponsor: Principal Financial Group. Lunch sponsor: HCRS Board Members. Golf Ball sponsor: Red House Press. Hole sponsors: Claremont Savings Bank, Members Advantage Community Credit Union, Primmer Piper Eggleston & Cramer PC, Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, The Abbey Group, Springfield Rotary, Dr. Rick Marasa, Cota & Cota Oil, River Valley Credit Union, Brattleboro Retreat, ServPro, and Ultimate Software.

100% of the funds raised will go to provide employment skills and opportunities for underserved youth in Windsor and Windham counties. Too many youth never have an opportunity to learn the skills needed to obtain and maintain employment. This results in a significant challenge for them once they reach adulthood and need to earn a living. Providing these youth with employment experience, giving them skills, a sense of responsibility, and a solid work ethic, will help ensure their successful future.
