“Inspired by a wish to give back, if only in a small way, and help others facing a cancer diagnosis in a child.”
Celebrate the life of Jacob Osit, who lost his battle with Neuroblastoma at the tender age of 10. Playing in his memory supports research at Connecticut Children’s, the Jimmy Fund, and programs at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

Dinner guests are welcome to join the golfers in the clubhouse at 4 pm for the reception.

Prizes awarded on each course for:
- Top 3 teams

At Golf Fore the Kids, we support the Cancer Clinical Trials program at Connecticut Children’s. The program provides novel therapeutic options for children with Neuroblastoma and other childhood solid tumors by developing personalized therapies to target the individual patient’s specific genetic makeup.
