The Kennedy Center received a generous gift right before the holidays, thanks to The Tony Dovolani Golf for Special Needs Children not-for-profit.
Stratford resident George Perham, who organizes the golf event, stopped by The Kennedy Center’s Project Ability, based in Trumbull, to hand-deliver a $20,000 donation, raised through the annual golf tournament.
Tony Dovolani, long-time Connecticut resident and a Dancing with the Stars Mirror Ball Champion, has donated proceeds from the invitational to The Kennedy Center’s Autism Project since 2017. The tournament started three years ago at Mill River Country Club in Stratford and because of its popularity, Dovolani added an additional tournament this year at The Patterson Club in Fairfield.
The Kennedy Center, founded in 1951, is an internationally accredited, non-profit, community-based rehabilitation organization that currently serves over 2,200 individuals annually. Visit thekennedycenterinc.org for more information.
