Women Fore Women Golf Tournament Tees Off Monday
WATERBURY, Conn. (May 29, 2013) – The Saint Mary’s Hospital Foundation will host the sixth annual Dorothy Hamill Women Fore Women Golf Tournament on Monday, June 3, 2013 at the Country Club of Waterbury. The Foundation is honored to once again have Olympic Gold Medalist Dorothy Hamill as Honorary Chairperson of this event, and Chris Geraghty of Southbury and Mary Wiatr of Woodbury, who have dedicated their time and talents year after year as the event co-chairs.
This year’s Gold Sponsor is Big Y of Naugatuck, which has donated $5,000 to the event.
Over the past five years, the tournament has raised $350,000 for the Breast Screening Fund at Saint Mary’s Hospital. This fund provides free screening mammograms, breast ultrasounds and additional diagnostic testing for women with little or no health insurance who are referred through area physicians and clinics in the Greater Waterbury area. With the generous support of event participants, sponsors and donors, the fund provided hundreds of diagnostic screenings for women in Greater Waterbury who would otherwise not have access to care.
This year’s tournament features a scramble format for golfers of all levels with flights at 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., lunch at noon and an evening cocktail reception and awards ceremony. The fee is $200 per person. Tickets are available to attend the evening reception only for $100 per person. Online registration is available at www.stmhfoundation.org or by calling (203) 709-3761.
