Heavy rains at the Fox Hopyard GC in East Haddam, accompanied by many lightning strikes throughout southern Connecticut, have led to rescheduling the Madison Exchange Club’s 7th Annual “Child Abuse Prevention” Classic from its original date of June 25th to a new date of Monday, August 6th.
As a result, Mother Nature has enabled prospective golfers and sponsorship candidates initially unable to participate in this worthwhile fundraiser, another chance! Case in point, Bob Thomas Ford of Hamden CT has just now offered to sponsor a beautiful 2012 Ford Fusion as the “Hole In One” prize for the tournament. That kind of caring and commitment goes a long way to making this type of event a spectacular success, not just a good outing.
Despite the washout that occurred on Monday, June 25th that brought anywhere from 2” to 5” to most CT golf courses, the Madison Exchange Club and its 7th Annual “Child Abuse Prevention” Golf Classic 7th Annual stands to become one of the biggest beneficiary of this dousing. Thanks again to Mother Nature, obviously a strong proponent of child abuse prevention, additional foursomes have already contacted the Madison Exchange Club’s 7th Annual Classic announcing their commitment to be part of the field.
So as much as we’ll miss our June date, playing in August with all of our supporters and friends will work out just fine. Please check your calendar and consider joining your neighbors and friends in support of this critical fundraiser.
Remember: Mother Nature is watching you! For additional information, please contact co-chairs Vince Dussich (203.245.9311) or Bob Graham (203.245.9059).
