Hit the Links for Underprivileged Students
Get into the swing of summer with a charity fundraiser that helps some of those nearest and dearest to your heart: your students!
The 24th annual Hands Across the Green golf tournament—Monday, July 16, 2018, at the Glastonbury Hills Country Club—is the largest fundraiser of the year for CEA’s charitable arm, the Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF). All proceeds support the Children’s Fund, which provides essentials such as clothes, eyeglasses, medicine, and school supplies for children in need.
Every school district, even in the most affluent community, has students who lack some of the resources they need, and CEF—through events like the annual golf tournament—provides a helping hand. Often, CEF steps in to assist families in an emergency, such as a South Windsor family who lost most of their possessions in a fire last year. Since its inception in 1994, Hands Across the Green has raised nearly $700,000 for children across the state.
