Old Timers to play a round for youth athletics

FI-golfThe Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association is preparing to tee off for the Sixteenth Annual Branca Brothers Charity Golf Outing, to be held Monday, June 10 at the town’s Griffith Harris golf course.

The tournament began in 1997 and is named in honor of Joe and Jim Branca, founders of the Greenwich Old Timers Association. Their vision, more than 50 years ago, was to create an organization that would not just foster good fellowship, but would raise funds to promote and support youth athletes and sports programs in the community.

Through its entry fees and other sponsorships, the golf tournament is one of the Old Timers’ major fund-raising events each year. Money raised as a result of the community’s participation in the event has helped to fund college scholarships, team uniforms and equipment, sports programs held at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, Greenwich basketball leagues, all Greenwich High School sporting events and teams, Midget, Babe Ruth, Junior, Senior baseball teams and leagues, Greenwich Special Olympics, Gateway Youth Football League, Greenwich YMCA sports programs, Cal Ripken Baseball, Connecticut Flames girls basketball, the Hamilton Avenue School basketball court, Greenwich Basketball Association, Greenwich Flag Football League and Kids in Crisis.

Play will be limited to 128 golfers on a first come, first served basis. The registration fee is $200 per player. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 1:15 p.m., followed by a reception and dinner featuring awards and door prizes.

A reception will be held under a large, lighted tent for participants to see the awards ceremony and enjoy the cocktail hour and dinner.
