“It was a great day for golf,” said United Way Resource Development Director Ali McGrath. “Everyone had a great time and the money raised will do much to help the many human service programs that United Way helps to fund that work to end hunger, help children and youth succeed and improve the overall health and well-being of our communities. I extend a sincere thank you to our major sponsors; National Grid, Entergy, Exelon Generation, Novelis, and Planned Results. Our food and beverage sponsors; Beacon Hotel, Eagle Beverage and David Mirabito / MetLife, and our Hole-One-Contest sponsor Burritt Motors. I also appreciate the hard work and dedication of the golf committee and our many volunteers who gave of their time and talents to help make our 20th Annual Golf Tournament enjoyable for everyone involved. Their efforts played a major role in the success of our golf tournament.”
