Geno Auriemma’s Fore the Kids Charity Golf Tournament
Come “tee it” up with Geno Auriemma, the NCAA’s winningest coach. Your “round to remember” at the prestigious Hartford Golf Club will include NIKE apparel and gear, brunch, beverage and food stations, and dinner reception emceed by ESPN’s Rebecca Lobo and Kevin Neghandi.
Tournament proceeds will help fund Connecticut Children’s new Infusion Center and Dialysis Center, where children requiring infusions for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, kidney disease and a host of other chronic conditions will receive world-class care.
Currently, there is no stand-alone outpatient dialysis center for children in Connecticut; to receive dialysis as an outpatient, children must either go to adult centers or travel to pediatric facilities in other states, options which can be difficult for patient families.
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.
We look forward to an exciting tournament and hope you will join us.
