BOYLSTON – Golfers gathered for state Rep. Hannah Kane’s (R-Shrewsbury) annual charity golf tournament last month at the Haven Country Club in Boylston.
The tournament matched last year’s proceeds, raising $60,000 that will go toward St. Anne’s Human Services, Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services and the Westborough Food Pantry.
“We have been blessed with some beautiful weather for this tournament and today was no exception,” Kane said.
A total of 144 golfers participated in the event. It kicked off with a shotgun start and included a BBQ lunch on the course and silent auction and raffle.
For the second time in the event’s history, there was a hole in one made by Sutton resident Carl Oberg, who made the shot on his first hit of the day on the 17th hole. Oberg won the men’s closest to the pin award.
“As the demand for social services continues to increase, the funds raised from this tournament become even more critical for the three charities we support,” said Tournament Director Beth Casavant. “Even while we are all enjoying the day, the reason why Rep. Kane has brought us all together remains the focus.”
Kane and Casavant thanked the host committee and the tournament’s sponsors.
