GREENWICH, Conn. -- The threat of rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm as 66 golfers teed up for the second Annual Lyme Research Alliance Golf Tournament at the Stanwich Club in Greenwich, raising about $80,000 to fund research toward a cure for Lyme disease.
The day included 18 holes of golf, lunch and dinner buffet, a cocktail reception sponsored by Greenwich Hospital, silent auction and awards ceremony.
“We want to say a huge thank-you to everyone who played a part in this year’s outing,” LRA Executive Director Peter Wild said in a statement. “Once again our golf committee has done a wonderful job of bringing together a sterling group of golfers to support our cause and play 18 holes on this spectacular course; and we appreciate the continued support of The Pepe Auto Group who donated the hole-in-one car.”
The winners of this year’s tournament were:
- 1st Place Low Gross—Lonnie Fine, Scott Russell, Bill Baum and Zach Stern
- 1st Place Low Net—Steve Robinson, Garrick Stannard, Mike Stamer and Walt McNultt
- 2nd Place Low Net—Scott Hobbs, Gina Zaugrillo, Jack Dowling and Jonathan Moffly
