THE COURSE AT BLUE FOX RUN Delivered!
Our 17th Annual Aces for Kids Golf Outing was an amazing event, raising over $89,000 for Connecticut Children’s. Since inception in 2002, this event has raised nearly $1,000,000 and is a key annual fundraising event to benefit Connecticut Children’s and its pediatric cancer patients.
Attendees had the opportunity to network with industry leaders in the aerospace community in addition to enjoying a beautiful day of golf. Our volunteers assisted in day-of efforts to ensure a smooth and fun event for golfers. Once off the course, everyone was able to relax and enjoy the clubhouse reception.
Event Chairman, Bill Gonet – Barnes Aerospace, expressed his gratitude of the aerospace industry sponsors that make the tournament possible. His remarks were followed by Lindsay David’s. Lindsey is the mother of a young patient, Gavin, and she spoke about the life-saving treatment her son has received in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Connecticut Children’s and inspired attendees to give generously.
Connecticut Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders provides access to state-of-the-art therapies for newly diagnosed patients as well as those with resistant or recurring cancers. For patients seeking hope in a new treatment, we provide options close to home. In addition to using today’s most advanced technology, Connecticut Children’s is working to define tomorrow’s innovation through vigorous research and exploring new treatments and cures. The Aces for Kids Golf Outing is proud to support the Division of Hematology/Oncology in creating the most comprehensive, patient-centered program in the region.
