Greenwich residents were out in force among the foursomes to help support The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk on May 24 as more than $185,000 was raised during the 10th annual Golf Classic at Wee Burn Country Club in Darien.
“This event is always a fun and memorable outing, but more so this year as it was the first large-scale fundraiser hosted by the Aquarium since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out last year, and of course since protocols have eased this spring,” said Danielle Tranzillo, the Aquarium’s director of Development. “We thank the 96 golfers who turned out and contributed so much, and also the Wee Burn Country Club for again hosting us on their beautiful course and fabulous facilities.”
The event included a delectable lunch to start the day, followed by 18 holes of golf, animal encounters, live music by members of the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra, and a relaxed sunset dinner.
Funds raised from the Golf Classic support the Aquarium’s living exhibits, marine science and environmental education.
Fairfield County Bank was presenting sponsor, with co-presenting sponsors New Canaan Funding and Spinnaker Real Estate Partners LLC.
