The 30th Annual Gardner Johnson Memorial Golf Tournament

Presented by Gerardi Insurance Services, Inc.

June 16, 2017 

The Arc Quinebaug Valley would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who made this golf tournament a huge success!  This event was held on June 16, 2017 at Connecticut National Golf Club in Putnam, CT.  Prizes were offered to the top finishing teams, as well as other contests throughout the play - closest to the pin, betting hole, and skins.  This year's tournament featured a chance to sink a hole in one on Hole 4 to win a car from Gates Automotive Group.  Our raffle offered even more chances to win some great prizes, which were donated by local businesses, community members, committee members, and arc employees.  

With a score of 57 on the Par 71 course, the foursome of Tim Cunha, Pete Cunha, Tommy Derosier and Scott Derosier took first place.  Second place winners were Dr. John Mooney, Mike Cristina, Jeff Clang, Jr. and Jeff Clang Sr. with a score of 60.  The foursome of Rick Dion, Doug May, Paul Roy & Chris Ketralis took third place with a score of 61.

The Annual Gardner Johnson Memorial Golf Tournament is a major fundraising event for The Arc and is well known in the community.  People seem to really look forward to this event and for that we are truly thankful, as proceeds directly benefit programs at The Arc Quinebaug Valley.  As always, we would like to express our gratitude to our community of players, volunteers, staff, participants, donors, and sponsors for supporting our success!

We have a variety of sponsorship levels to suit any business need.  Participation in the tournament ensures presence in The Arc's extensive advertising campaign prior to and at the tournament.
