The Hands Across the Green Golf Tournament was to take place Monday, July 12, at Glastonbury Hills Country Club but has been postponed until July 26 due to road closures and flooding on the course.
The golf tournament is a fundraiser for the Connecticut Education Foundation’s Children’s Fund, which assists needy students in Connecticut’s public schools by providing them the basic needs they lack. These needs may include clothes, eyeglasses, and hearing aids. The absence thereof can create obstacles to learning for these children.
CEF, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, charitable organization established by the Connecticut Education Association in 1991, administers The Children’s Fund. All Golf Tournament proceeds are contributed solely to The Children’s Fund.
