Golf with some good Friends

Or play tennis, all for a great cause

NEW HAVEN — The 17th annual Friends of Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital Golf and Tennis Open will be held July 21 at the Farms Country Club in Wallingford.
Proceeds from this year’s event will help fund supportive care services that relieve pain and discomfort in the most fragile group of hospitalized children suffering from trauma, cardiac disease, cancer and other serious illnesses, the hospital said.
Registration for golf and tennis begins at 11 a.m. An evening program including cocktails, dinner and an auction begins at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $250 for golf; $140 for tennis, and $80 for cocktails and dinner only.
The Friends of the Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital was founded in 1989 to address health and safety issues that affect the well being of children through advocacy, outreach and educational efforts and by supporting pediatric research and clinical care, the hospital said.
For more information or to register for golf, tennis or to attend the dinner, contact Jessica Scheps in the Yale-New Haven Hospital office of development at (203) 688.8727.
