Hit the Links for Underprivileged Students
The 25th annual Hands Across the Green golf tournament—Monday, July 15, 2019, 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. Since its inception in 1994, Hands Across the Green has raised over $700,000 for children across the state.
