A Day of Fellowship Raises Funds for Children in Need

Hundreds of Connecticut teachers, supporters, and CEA staff have been at the Glastonbury Hills Country Club today taking part in the 25th annual Hands Across the Green Golf Tournament—the Connecticut Education Foundation’s (CEF) fundraiser to benefit public school students in need.

CEA Vice President and CEF President Tom Nicholas and CEA President Jeff Leake both played in today’s tournament.

“The CEF golf tournament is the major fundraiser of the year that fuels CEA’s charitable arm,” says CEA Vice President and CEF President Tom Nicholas. “CEF provides public school children across the state with clothing, glasses, help with dental needs, and so much more. The fund also provides multiple scholarships for students planning careers in teaching and supports the Edward J. Boland Financial Assistance Fund, which helps teachers facing extraordinary hardships. Without the golf tournament this philanthropic work would not be possible.” Read more

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.
