Participants in the 28th annual Conway Country Charity Golf for the Homeless event at the Easton Country Club helped raise more than $15,000.
The event, run by Jack Conway & Co., benefits homeless causes throughout Southeastern Massachusetts. A damp start didn’t cloud the excitement of the full field of 144 golfers who helped celebrate the event’s 28th year. By the time golfers were on their third hole, the sun was out and course was in superb condition.
“This tournament is so special because we have some people who have been here every year we’ve run it,” said Conway Regional VP Denis Lilla as he welcomed the golfers. “And once again this year we’ve surpassed our fundraising goals and had a lot of fun doing it.
For almost three decades, Conway Country golfers have helped raise over $500,000 since the tournament’s inception in 1984, which went directly to shelters like MainSpring House in Brockton, Conway House in Middleboro and Evelyn House in Stoughton.
The winning team for this year’s tourney was Bill Bridge, Matt Vaughn Brian Reid and Adam Rubin, and they shot a 10-under, 61 in the scramble format. Rubin also won the closest to the pin contest. Tony Lilla won long drive contest for the men, with Tara O’Donnell winning the long drive prize on the ladies side.
