In 1994, an idea was born to host a golf tournament that would raise money for The Connecticut Education Foundation’s (CEF) Children’s Fund to assist needy schoolchildren. CEF is the charitable arm of the Connecticut Education Association.
Connecticut’s teachers often find themselves spending their own money to help students whose families cannot afford clothing, school supplies, food, or medical provisions. Through CEF’s Children’s Fund, teachers can tap into money raised through various fundraisers to help these very students.
CEF’s largest annual fundraiser is the Hands Across the Green golf tournament, which will be held this year on Monday, July 15, at the Glastonbury Hills Country Club.
Since the tournament’s inception, some of the same golfers have returned to participate every year, while new ones keep joining. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the tournament has raised nearly $650,000 because of the generosity and commitment of Connecticut’s teachers. One hundred percent of this money goes directly to the Children’s Fund.
