On Monday, July 11, Household Goods hosted its first-ever Home in One Golf Tournament. The charity event drew 92 golfers to Concord Country Club and raised over $50,000 to help Household Goods fulfill its mission.
The Home in One Golf Tournament is organized by a volunteer committee of local residents including, Janice Battle, Mimi Rutledge, and Audrey Trieschman of Concord, Beth Neeley-Kubacki of Carlisle, and Priscilla Gannon of Andover.
“It was fantastic to be joined by a full field of golfers from the Greater Boston Area and MetroWest business community to raise always-needed funds as well as increase awareness about our organization,” says Sharon Martens, Executive Director of Household Goods. “This is critical, as we rely on the local community to help us help 2,500 families make a home every year. We are so very grateful for the overwhelming support of our hard-working Golf Committee, our generous sponsors, the enthusiastic players, and our tireless volunteers for making our first-ever Home in One Golf Tournament such a success.”
The 18-hole round of golf was followed by dinner and an awards ceremony for top golfers. The First Place Net team included Halsey Platt of Groton, MA and his teammates, Brian Wells, Will Dewey and Eric Gorewitz. The First Place Gross team included Churchill Franklin of Concord, John McDonald and Chris Roy. On the green, golfers had the opportunity to compete in a longest drive contest, as well as a hole-in-one challenge that had participants shooting for a Toyota Camry. The post-golf celebration included a silent auction.
Household Goods extends our deepest gratitude to all our Home in One Golf Tournament sponsors who have helped to make our first tournament a success. Acton Toyota was the Hole-in-One Sponsor and provided a Toyota Camry as the signature prize. This year’s Sponsors included Putnam Investments, Engel and Völkers, Battle Associates, Platt Builders, Kim and Dennis Burns, and Ann Marie and Dick Connolly, as well as many others.
