Letter: Thank-you to ABC Golf Classic sponsors

To the Editors:

On Monday, May 16, A Better Chance of Wilton (ABC) hosted its 19th Annual Golf Classic to benefit the organization. The weather cooperated, Rolling Hills Country Club provided a wonderful venue and refreshments, and we had an excellent turnout for a great day of golf in support of a wonderful cause.

A Better Chance of Wilton provides a home and education for up to 14 scholars per year. All the scholars are academically gifted from disadvantaged backgrounds, and they are chosen to participate in the program to give them “a better chance” in life.

ABC not only positively impacts these students’ lives, but the program enriches the Wilton schools and our community as well. The organization is funded exclusively by fund-raising events and donations from our community.

We would like to thank the individuals and companies for their support of A Better Chance and for helping to make our 2016 Golf Classic a success. Their financial support ensured the success of the event.  

ABC will be hosting its third Opening Our Hearts and Homes House Tour next spring on June 2, 2017. Please save the date on your calendar for this great event. The next ABC Golf Tournament will be in the spring of 2018.

Thank you again as supporting our spring fund-raisers gives these scholars “a better chance.”
