It’s a Hole in One for Cancer Research!
Please join the hundreds and hundreds of us who help give local children hope by participating in or sponsoring the 5th Annual Robby Brisco Open on August 3, 2020 at the Golf Club of Avon. In its first four years, The RBO has donated over $200,000 to the Pediatric Cancer Clinical Trials Programs at Connecticut Children’s.
There’ll be over 225 golfers and dinner guests, live music, breakfast, lunch, dinner, auctions, raffles, prizes and lots of fun! If you don’t golf, you can join us for the post-golf reception, dinner and awards ceremony. The winning foursome will be awarded the traditional RBO Red Jackets and have their names inscribed on the magnificent RBO Trophy!

We will not rest until there is a cure.
Robby lost his 3 1/2 year battle with cancer in September 2015. Since then, other children from our area have lost their battles. Robby’s wish was that we continue his fight, the fight. It is children like Robby that motivate us and our family of volunteers to do what we can to stop something which should never happen.
