George Cup Tournament tees off Sept. 27

On Thursday, Sept. 27, Greenwich residents Doug and Lucy Conrod will host the third bi-annual George Cup Golf Tournament, benefiting the Williams Syndrome Association.

The event includes an 18-hole tournament with player awards and hole-in-one prizes including a Fisker automobile and private jet charter services. Following the tournament, golfers will be joined by guests for an evening of live music, auctions and a celebration of individuals with Williams Syndrome.

Previous tournaments have raised more than $250,000, making The George Cup the premier event for the Williams Syndrome Association. This year, the committee hopes to raise even more in order to fund research and programming, including a special grant for the Association’s specialized camp programs for children and young adults.

Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities. These occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. There are an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 individuals with Williams Syndrome in the United States, including the Conrods’ son, George.

The Williams Syndrome Association provides resources, support and the latest medical information in order to help individuals with Williams Syndrome reach their full potential. It funds research, hosts camps and conventions, provides scholarships and facilitates programming for children and adults.
