Sponsor and Player Registration Form  View the Online Auction
Your “round to remember” at the prestigious Hartford Golf Club will include NIKE apparel and gear, brunch, beverage and food stations, and a dinner reception hosted by ESPN’s Rebecca Lobo and Kevin Neghandi.
Gold level and above sponsors will enjoy an exclusive VIP Experience at Sunday’s final round of the Travelers Championship, with access to the climate-controlled Mohegan Sun Club on the18th fairway and a private reception after the round at TPC River Highlands.

Tournament proceeds will help fund Connecticut Children’s new Infusion & Dialysis Center, the first facility of its kind in the state to offer pediatric outpatient dialysis services. We can help even more children receive infusions, and outpatient dialysis services, in comfort and privacy in a facility specifically designed for kids. No longer will doctors have to tell a parent of a child needing outpatient dialysis services that we can’t treat your child here.

Proceeds will also fund a new portable, low-dose, real-time imaging system for the surgeons in our nationally recognized Division of Orthopedics. The Orthoscan Mini C-Arm provides the most advanced technology, and with real-time feedback for surgeons, will reduce the number of surgeries needed and shorten the recovery times of the children Connecticut Children’s cares for.

Over the past 15 years, the tournament has raised more than $1.5 million for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Thank you Coach Auriemma, our dedicated committee and all of our sponsors!

Who You ARE Supporting

My second pregnancy was a smooth, healthy one with no red flags on any of my routine ultrasounds. Rylan was born in Waterbury on Monday, October 6, 2015 weighing 9lbs 1oz. There were no red flags at the time of Rylan’s birth. It was not until 24 hours later, when he was ready to be discharged, that everything changed. Rylan went for two routine tests. A hearing test and a fairly new test for newborns- the pulse ox test (non-invasive test measures blood oxygen in the body).

This is the test he failed….
