On Monday, October 5, a group of enthusiastic supporters of Operation Hope came together at the stunning Country Club of Fairfield for Operation Hope’s annual Golf Outing to tee up to end hunger and end homelessness in our community. Webster Bank served as Title Sponsor, continuing its longstanding tradition of partnering with Operation Hope.

Our golf committee knocked it out of the park, or course, this year! Thank you for pulling together the event – Chairs Mark Scott and Ab Igram and committee members Meg Murray, Sharon Risley, Bob Moriarty, Alex Trembicki and Peter DiDomenico. Proceeds help us provide clinical support, housing affordability, food and hope for the future for those experiencing homelessness today.

Much appreciation to our returning Title Sponsor Webster Bank and sponsors Turner Construction Company, Hines, EC Scott Group, People’s United Bank, IPS, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Global Infrastructure Partners, Ivan Maisel & Meg Murray, Lindenmeyr Central and First County Bank. Also thanks to the raffle prize donors – so many wonderful prizes available, especially those very cool Tito’s Handmade Vodka golf bags. And many thanks to our staff and volunteers for their time and talents to make this event possible.

The event promised a day “filled with fundraising, fun and great golf” – and it delivered on all of that, and more. Visit the Facebook post here to see the photos from the day (courtesy of Fairfield HamletHub).

We are grateful to you as we rely on your support now, more than ever. Since the pandemic started, the demand for food has increased by 35%. Not only are we filling the needs of the regular families, elderly, disabled, but are now aiding the growing number of unemployed, right here in our own town. And it’s not just food you’re helping to provide. You are giving a vulnerable population the opportunity for positive and lasting change – and directly breaking the cycle of homelessness. Thank you – and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s Golf Outing!
