On a beautiful afternoon with the fall foliage shining in
all its glory, Honduras Children's Project held our Second Annual Swing for Honduras Golf Tournament on
Sunday, October 13, 2013 at Indian Springs Golf Course in Middlefield. The competition was a nine-hole scramble
style tournament with best of each shot selected. In this type of
competition strategy is key and teamwork moves to the forefront. Nine foursomes came out to play, including
last year's championship foursome of Jay and Liz Conroy and Mark and Annie
Jungels. The competition was intense and
hotly contested, but fun with a team of teachers from Hopkins School in New
Haven pulling out the win on the last hole - Lars Jorgensen, Ian Clark, Steve
Clark and Pete Swan. A well-deserved second
place went to their students - Davey Proctor, Jason Hagani, Brian Kitano, Arnav
Singh and Shivan Patel.
Other competition winners were Jay Conroy – Closest to the Pin, and for the second year in a row, John Keily – Closest to the Line.
Our sponsors were wonderful and included many local as well as regional individuals and businesses. Our Hole sponsors included: Drs. Ed and Mary Pergiovanni, the Erodici Family, Connecticut Communications, Brandywine Asset Management, Father Anthony, Analytical Direct, CRHS Spanish Honors Society, Connecticut Sign and the Proctor Family. Our Prize sponsors included: Perk-on-Main and Core Club.
We are grateful for the help of our many volunteers, including (in no particular order) Kathy, Courtney, Tristan, Kelly, Christine, Josh, Marye and Skippy. Without them, we would not have been able to hold such a successful golf tournament.
Lastly, Honduras Children’s Project wishes to express a huge thank you to Indian Springs Golf Course for hosting our tournament. The 47 children at Copprome Orphanage in Honduras say, “Muchas gracias!”
Honduras Children's Project made a net profit of $2900 - all proceeds go towards improving the education for the Children of Copprome Orphanage.
Stay tuned for our next fundraiser.
