MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT – Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN) held its first combined Mason & Purcell Golf Classic on July 25 at Tumble Brook Country Club in Bloomfield, Conn.
This new tournament raised more than $135,000 to benefit Manchester Memorial and Rockville General Hospitals. The day of golf included lunch on the course, cocktail reception, a live and silent auction and dinner attracting close to 220 golfers.
The Jack Mason Memorial Golf Tournament and the Daniel Paul Purcell, MD Memorial Golf Classic were separate events held annually since the early 1980s. Both tournaments have attracted strong support from local businesses and community representatives.
This year, the tournaments were combined to reduce expenses, make better use of resources, illustrate the unification of the ECHN organization, celebrate the historical merging of two established families in the eastern Connecticut community and provide an even greater opportunity for community involvement.
ECHN extends its gratitude to the following sponsors: Presenting Sponsor: First Niagara; Cocktail Sponsor: Ambulance Service of Manchester; Lunch Sponsors: CASLE Corporation • Medconn Collection Agency, LLC • Mercer • Griffin York & Krause • and Rubin & Raine; Scoreboard Sponsors: Allscripts and BNY Mellon Wealth Management; Registration Table Sponsors: Cerner Corporation • Connecticut Business Systems • Crown Healthcare Apparel Services • CWPM, LLC • DeRoyal Industries • EMC Corporation • Harmony Healthcare International, Inc.• Durant, Nichols, Houston, Hodgson & Cortese-Costa, P.C. • Lynch Toyota Scion • International Computerware, Inc. • Morrison & Mahoney, O'Brien, Tanski & Young • Visiting Nurse & Health Services of Connecticut, Inc. • Eastern Connecticut Pathology Consultants, PC, • and Wolff Financial Group, LLC.
