Staples High School students B.K. Browne, Anelise Brown and Noah Lomnitz were three of 17 junior golfers from 12 communities throughout the state who were awarded scholarships based upon academic achievement, school and community leadership, and golf proficiency. Junior golfers aged 15 through 18 played for free in this scramble-format, 18-hole classic.
Nearly 90 golfers swung their clubs for charity in one of the only tournaments in the state where junior golfers play with an adult foursome.
This tournament teed off at Shorehaven Golf Club in Norwalk and raised over $32,700 for underfunded programs provided by The Kennedy Center. Since its inception, the tournament has contributed over $638,000 for the benefit of children and adults with disabilities in the community to live a productive and fulfilling life.
In total, nearly 500 junior golfers from Connecticut have received more than $240,000 in scholarship money.
