The annual golf outing benefiting Operation Hope, the nonprofit that addresses local issues of homelessness and hunger, will take place Oct. 1 at the Country Club of Fairfield.
Players can participate as an individual or with a foursome, according to organizers, and business and individual sponsorships are available.
In addition to playing 18 holes at the Country Club of Fairfield, regarded as one of the nation’s foremost courses, the outing will include lunch, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, carving stations, an auction and awards.
“Whether you’re a scratch player or you can barely drive, everyone is invited to participate,” Michael Fucigna, the golf outing co-chairman, said in publicity for the event.
Ab Ingram, the other co-chairman, said, “Funds raised will directly impact families and individuals in our community, providing desperately needed shelter, food and other services.”
Operation Hope addresses basic needs for food and shelter, as well as offering long-term solutions to hunger and homelessness, including affordable housing, life-skills training and personalized clinical support, according to the agency.
