State Representative Matt Beaton to host third annual Beaton Charity Classic


Shrewsbury/Westborough – State Representative Matt Beaton is delighted to host his third annual charity golf tournament Monday, Aug. 18, at the Haven Country Club (formerly Mount Pleasant Country Club) in Boylston. The Beaton Charity Classic (BCC) will begin at 9 a.m. with registration and a continental breakfast, followed by a 10:30 a.m. bramble-style start, barbecue lunch served on the course, and a 19th-hole reception.

Beaton and the Host Committee said they are excited to welcome new sponsors and to recognize current sponsors who are stepping up to higher levels of support.

“I am excited and humbled by the generosity of our supporters and participants who have enabled us to give over $72,000 to three very worthy charities over the course of the last two years,” Beaton said. “The need has been great in our communities and our ability to help agencies respond quickly to events such as the unexpected influx of homeless families last fall is only made possible by the support we are given from our sponsors and the dedication of our golf Host Committee. This year's tournament is shaping up to be another great day of golf that will allow us to assist a number of people in our community.”

Funds raised will be donated to the following local charities: St. Anne's Human Services, which assists the poor and needy with food and clothing; Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, a private, non-profit community counseling and social services agency; and the Westborough Food Pantry.

The Host Committee wishes to encourage those individuals who are unable to participate in the golfing but wish to support the event to join them at the 19th-hole reception which begins as the golfing winds down, approximately 3:30 p.m., and will feature silent and live auctions as well as delicious food and a cash bar. Tickets are $60 per person. Shrewsbury Selectman Jim Kane will reprise his role as emcee at the reception.

Presenting Sponsor for the tournament is once again the Gene J. DeFeudis Family Foundation. Leader Board sponsors, a new level of sponsorship this year, includes Dunkin Donuts, Hair-Lines for Paul Mitchell Systems, Metso and Wheelabrator Shrewsbury. Hole-in-One sponsors are Beaton Kane Construction and Carlstrom Pressed Metal.
