Shrewsbury/Westborough – Solar eclipse glasses were accessories for some of the 144 golfers at the third annual Hannah Kane Charity Classic, held Aug. 21 at the Haven Country Club in Boylston. The efforts of the fundraising golf tournament’s supporters raised $54,000 for three worthy causes.

The full day of activities began with a continental breakfast and concluded with a 19th-Hole Reception sponsored by Central One Federal Credit Union. There, state Rep. Hannah Kane, R-Shrewsbury, announced that the First-Place Gross Team Award was earned by a foursome of representatives from SALMON Health and Retirement.

The golfers and volunteers enjoyed dinner while additional funds were raised with raffles and a silent auction. The reception concluded with Kane presenting $18,000 each to representatives of three nonprofit organizations: St. Anne’s Human Services, Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, and the Westborough Food Pantry.

Kane is continuing the tradition of her predecessors when they served as state representative. Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito hosted a fundraising golf tournament for 10 years, followed by Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matt Beaton for three. This year’s charity classic marked the 16th annual golf fundraiser in the 11th Worcester District.
