CHNCT Foundation will hold its eighth annual golf classic August 19, 2013 at New England’s number one golf destination—Lake of Isles at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
Lake of Isles’ South Course is a 36–hole, Rees Jones designed golf club located across the street from Foxwoods Resort Casino. The course has a 7,300 yard layout and winds its way through 900 acres of wooded countryside and around a 90–acre lake, according to its website. Managed by Troon Golf, a worldwide leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing, Lake of Isles offers the ultimate golf experience.
At the Cornell Scott Memorial Golf Classic, players will not only have the opportunity to play on the Lake of Isles’ private, members-only course, but they will also be able to take advantage of its 50,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, state-of-the-art outdoor practice facility and its locker room facilities, all in addition to Troon Golf ’s superior service and impeccable course conditions. While enjoying a day out on the green, golfers have the opportunity to network with other professionals and become partners of the Foundation.
There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities to choose from, each giving businesses a great opportunity to increase their brand awareness while supporting a great cause. We are actively looking for individual and corporate sponsorship partners, and would like your support.
Sponsors are recognized by the Foundation in a variety of ways: promotion with logo artwork and hyper-links on our web site event page; in email blast marketing; and with signs and banners throughout the event.
The annual golf classic has enabled the Foundation to award more than $240,000 to Federally Qualified Health Centers and small community organizations throughout the state to enhance existing programs. These funds have supported parent support programs for children with autism; support services to people living with sickle cell disease; prenatal ultrasound testing and lab work for uninsured and low-income pregnant women; patient education to facilitate health care access; diabetes self-management education; a community dental van; hunger awareness programs; and more.
Cornell Scott was a founder and board member of the Foundation. He dedicated his life to addressing the needs of community health while acting as a passionate advocate for the health care needs of the poor. To honor Mr. Scott’s legacy, CHNCT Foundation’s annual golf tournament was renamed the Cornell Scott Memorial Golf Classic in 2009.
