LEGO® Children’s Charity Golf Tournament
Monday, September 19, 2016
at TPC River Highlands
LEGO Systems, Inc. and the Travelers Championship announced that the fifth annual LEGO® Children’s Charity Golf Tournament raised more than $64,000 for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Hartford’s Camp Courant. In five years since the tournament’s inception in 2012, the tournament has raised nearly $400,000 for these two organizations.
On September 19, 2016, over 80 golfers were greeted at TPC River Highlands. Throughout the course, there were various LEGO challenges that allowed participants to explore their inner builder and connect with the two beneficiaries. Hole 5 had golfers take a step into the shoes of a HCC camper and make a tough choice, while Hole 11 featured LEGO bricks as an obstacle. CJ Gibbs, a former patient from Connecticut Children’s Medical Center also joined the golfers on Hole 16 as each group’s fifth putter. New for the fifth annual event, the golfers also had the opportunity to participate in a team Yellow Ball Challenge!
Following the golf portion of the event, participants attended a dinner and awards reception where Connecticut Children’s representative CJ Gibbs addressed the crowd, and participants received trophies made of LEGO bricks.
