The Wilton Chamber of Commerce is holding its 21st Annual Wilton Chamber Golf Classic on Monday, May 8, at Rolling Hills Country Club. This annual golf outing is a fundraiser for the Wilton Chamber and its scholarship program, awarding one scholarship each year to a deserving high-school senior.
Each year the high-school designates a selection committee to help identify a student based on the criteria of academic achievement, leadership and community service. Last year the Wilton Chamber scholarship was awarded to Class of 2016 senior Victoria Baggio.
The golf outing is a yearly, fun event for Chamber members and non-members alike to support the fundraiser. Each year, around 18 foursomes venture out onto the course to compete for the prestigious Wilton Cup. Players may form their own foursomes or register as singles or doubles. This year the Wilton Chamber has partnered with the Westport/Weston Chamber to invite their members. Spots are still open for interested golfers to participate.
Wilton’s Nick Lee, of Lee Horticultural Services, and Robert McDowell, CEO of Riverbrook YMCA, (pictured above) are reigning champions, and they are set to defend their titles and try to retain possession of the Cup.
In addition to first place prizes for men and women, as well as The Wilton Cup, there will be other contests and drawings, with many prizes–including a foursome at the club–to be awarded. The $250 per person registration fee includes the day of golf, a cart, breakfast and lunch, drinks and snacks on the course all day and free gifts.
On-site check in begins at 8 a.m. with a 10 a.m. shotgun start.
