8th Annual Seabury Charitable Foundation Golf Tournament - A Resounding Success

Avon, CT - The 8th Annual Seabury Charitable Foundation Golf Tournament took place on Tuesday, September 27, at Blue Fox Run golf course, a new home for the event. This year’s tournament was especially poignant as it honored the memory of Seabury EVP and CEO John S. Mobley, the first and only CEO at Seabury during its twenty-year history. Once again, NBC 30 meteorologist Bob Maxon, a close friend and neighbor of John, served as the guest emcee. By early afternoon, morning haze had lifted and provided a splendid day for golf.

Our 8th Annual Tournament was a marvelous success, raising more than $42,000 for the Seabury Charitable Foundation. The funds will be used to provide benevolent support (financial assistance to live at Seabury) to resident seniors who have exhausted their financial resources through no fault of their own. In the Foundation's fifteen years, it has provided more than 1.7 million in benevolent support to qualified seniors.

Nearly 100 golfers and guests, community business partners, residents and staff members participated in the tournament via golfing, sponsorships or by contributing items towards the silent auction. Golden ticket items proved very exciting and raised a hefty sum, as did the live auction of the Personal Chef Dinner for eight, hosted by Seabury’s executive Chef Ken Cassella, which was so popular that three bidders all paid top dollar for the experience.

Winners for the low gross score are as follows:
1st place, the team of Halligan/Burr/Dominguez/Eilers. (56)
2nd place, the team of Giroux/Robinson/Zener and guest. (61)
3rd place, the team of Hughes/Kaloides/Mike/Carlson. (61)
