Scouts to get low ropes course with benefit proceeds

gl-golf-scouts-10-31

Pack 35 Cub Scout Victor Ferraro and Troop 35 Boy Scout Jamie Heavey led the colorguard for the opening ceremony of the recent Greenwich Scouting annual Golf Tournament at the Round Hill Club.

Gray skies didn’t scare off 108 golfers who recently teed off at Greenwich Scouting’s 27th Golf Tournament — the most successful yet — at the Round Hill Club.

Highlighting the event was the overwhelming success of the giving tree, which alone brought in more than $20,000 that will directly go to building a low ropes course at Seton Scout Reservation in Glenville. Thanks to donors and sponsors, all proceeds of the event will benefit the youth and operations of Greenwich Scouting.

The Annual Greenwich Scouting Golf Tournament is the Greenwich Council, Boy Scouts of America’s largest fund-raising event of the year. This year’s event featured a hole-in-one contest and raffle of a full set of custom fitted golf clubs from the Greenwich Golf Fitting Studio.

Following the tournament, attendees enjoyed cocktails on the veranda and a variety of fun silent auction items. During dinner, author and publisher Martin Davis was the master of ceremonies as well as the live auction auctioneer of superb items including golf at National Golf Links and a week’s stay in a Penthouse suite in Cabo del Sol, Mexico.

Last year, Greenwich Scouting celebrated their 100th Anniversary of delivering quality programs to nearly 2,500 boys and girls annually. Scouting youth participate in fun programs that build character, foster volunteerism and explore the outdoors, all helping to prepare them for life. Visit GreenwichScouting.org for more information.
