Marlborough – On July 11, more than 160 golfers and volunteers joined together for the 24th year in memory of Bob “RF” Wood and raised funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest. The 24th annual RF Wood Kids Classic Golf Tournament was held at Marlborough Country Club and raised nearly $40,000 to support the quality out-of-school programming that serves over 3,500 local youth each year.

Golfers enjoyed 18 holes of golf, lunch on the course provided by Panera Bread of Marlborough, a cocktail reception and dinner. They also participated in raffles, betting holes and contests throughout the day, including a Hole-in-One contest for a 2016 Nissan Altima donated by Marlboro Nissan. Dinner was sponsored by Ken’s Foods, Inc.

“We greatly appreciate all the wonderful support from our golfers, sponsors and event donors to benefit our club kids in Metrowest,” said Fran Hurley, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest.

At dinner, after the tournament, the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest, together with the Wood family of Hudson, presented the RF Wood Award to Mark O’Connell, president and CEO of Avidia Bank. For years, O’Connell has been incredibly supportive of the club and represents the many qualities that RF Wood valued – including outstanding dedication and volunteerism for the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest.

July 10, 2017 will mark the 25th year of the RF Wood Kids Classic Golf Tournament. For information on how you can help support the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest through the 25th annual RF Wood Kids Classic Golf Tournament, contact Erin Harper at 508-485-4912, ext. 112.
