Greenwich Scouting Golf Tournament honors Perry Burns

On Monday, Sept. 21, 2015, the Greenwich Council, Boy Scouts of America, Perry L. Burns Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at the Round Hill Club. While this is the 29th annual golf tournament for Greenwich Scouting, the event was recently renamed in honor of longtime tournament chair and Scouting supporter Perry L. Burns. Perry, who was a Greenwich Council Board member for the last two decades, combined his passion for golf and Scouting to successfully co-chair the tournament for 20 years, helping raise over two million for local youth and Scouting programs.

The Sept. 21 golf event will begin at 11 a.m. and includes brunch, golf and dinner. Non-golfers are also welcome to attend for cocktails on the veranda, a terrific dinner and a great selection of silent and live auction items. All auction items are available online for bidding, including superb golf courses, vacations, dining experiences and much more! Proceeds of the tournament benefit the youth and operations of Greenwich Scouting.

The Greenwich Council, Boy Scouts of America is comprised of over 250 dedicated volunteers who serve nearly 2,000 local boys and girls each year. Greenwich youth enjoy and learn from adventures through Scouting programs, attend Camp Seton Summer Camp, contribute to local community service projects and focus on leadership. Seton Scout Reservation (often referred to as Camp Seton), located on Riversville Road in Glenville, offers swimming, boating, hiking, climbing, BB guns, archery, crafts, nature studies and much more for local Scouts, friends of Scouts and partnering organizations.

You can support these wonderful youth in our community by playing in the Golf Tournament, sponsoring Scouting equipment, uniforms and camp scholarships or by making a donation to the Golf Tournament auction.
