HARTFORD — Two of the state’s most recognizable advocates for domestic violence prevention invite you to tee off with them against the issue that affects the lives of one in every four women, according to advocates.
Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and Connecticut Child Advocate Jeannie Milstein are honorary co-chairs of “Tee Off With Women,” the second annual women’s golf tournament sponsored by Community Renewal Team, Inc. and Interval House to raise money for domestic violence programs.
Proceeds from the event, set for June 22 at Blue Fox Run in Avon, will benefit Interval House and CRT Programs. Interval House serves victims of domestic violence – primarily women and children – throughout Central Connecticut with locations in Hartford, Manchester and Simsbury. CRT runs supported apartments for those who are transitioning out of the Interval House shelter.
Many spots for female golfers are available. Cost is $150 per player and includes golf with a complementary cart, lunch and dinner and a welcome from the tournament committee, including the co-chairs. Players may sign up as individuals or in foursomes.
Sponsors include Hartford Municipal Employee Federal Credit Union, Webster Bank and Anthem. Many more sponsorship opportunities also are available. For information on playing or sponsorships, contact Nancy Shapiro at (860) 560-5471 or visit www.crtct.org/golf.htm.
The event is part of CRT’s ongoing Campaign to End Domestic Violence, which can be read about atwww.crtct.org/EndDomesticViolence.
