VERMONT- HCRS’ seventh annual golf tournament fundraiser featured many new and exciting changes this year. Seventy-four players took to the greens at the Woodstock Country Club, raising more than $17,000.

This year’s fundraiser was designated to support HCRS’ Kindle Farm School. Players competed for longest drive and closest to the pin awards. In addition, participants took part in a fun ball toss contest, a balloon pop raffle, and numerous other activities which added to the enjoyment of the day. Following the tournament, everyone enjoyed a fabulous dinner for which the Woodstock Country Club is well known.

The first-place winners of the golf tournament were the Black River Produce Team (Steve Birge, Rick Marasa, and Tim Reynolds). Second place went to the SoVerNet Team (Jay Bellows, Starr Barnam, and Marino Bartaloney). Third place went to Jason Gramling, Jason Paronto, Kyle Goulde, and Kalem Taft. Each of the top three teams received a round of golf at a local golf club along with other great prizes donated by Mascoma Savings Bank. Winners of the longest drive were Natalie Audette and Seth Lockerby; Cathy Coonan and Scott Gordon-Macey were awarded the closest to the pin prizes.

One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to support HCRS’ Kindle Farm School. Kindle Farm provides an alternative, hands-on, supportive learning environment for boys who have not found success in the traditional classroom setting. Located in Newfane, Kindle Farm offers a combination of diverse activities, strong supervision, and trusting relationships to address each student’s emotional, behavioral, and educational needs.
