Annual golf classic tees off August 11

The sixth annual Trumbull First Selectman’s Golf Classic is scheduled for Friday, August 11, 2017 at Tashua Knolls Golf Course.

Since its inception five years ago, the First Selectman’s Golf Classic has grossed over $330,000. Net proceeds from the Golf Classic benefit 501(c)(3) organizations at Trumbull High School. The Trumbull ACE Foundation, the Trumbull High School Golden Eagle Marching Band and sports booster clubs have received proceeds each year.

“I want to thank sponsors, golfers and volunteers for their hard work each year on the Golf Classic,” said First Selectman Timothy Herbst. “ Bringing the community together to support positive activities for our young people is rewarding and a testament to the strong commitment Trumbull residents and businesses have to our students. I consider it a great privilege to have been a part of this wonderful event each year.”

The tournament will begin with registration and lunch at 11 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at noon. The registration fee is $250 per golfer and $1,000 per foursome. The event concludes with a cocktail reception with assorted serving stations.
