Tournament puts Monroe First
MONROE, CT — The First Selectman’s Golf Outing enjoyed beautiful weather at Whitney Farms Golf Course on Oct. 14, when close to 60 golfers played in an annual tournament benefiting the Monroe First Foundation, First Selectman Ken Kellogg’s charity.
“I’m pretty sure we’ll raise a net of over $16,000 for Monroe organizations,” Kellogg said. “It all goes to charitable organizations that rely heavily on donations for their missions. It will be put to good use.”
Over the years, the Monroe First Foundation has given donations to the Monroe Senior Center, the Monroe Playground Foundation, the Monroe Scholarship Fund, the Masuk PTC and its Post Prom Committee.
“I’m grateful, not only to the golfers who came out, but to the Monroe businesses who gave generously, sponsoring holes and donating prizes for the tournament and raffles,” Kellogg said.
