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.
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.
