Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Geno Auriemma’s “Fore the Kids” Charity Golf Tournament - where players are treated to a day filled with 18-holes at the prestigious Hartford Golf Club, followed by a spectacular dinner catered by OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE of Manchester, Connecticut.
Our tournament sells out quickly, so secure your opportunity to play through one of the many sponsorship packages we’ve created for you.
You will enjoy a wonderful day and leave with the satisfaction of knowing that you helped to make a difference in the life of a child. If you have any questions, please contact Taury Del Valle or Robin Vidito.

The 2015 Geno Auriemma "Fore the Kids" Golf Tournament is proud to support Connecticut Children's Orthopaedics Program, one of the top pediatric orthopaedics programs in the nation. Proceeds from this year's event will be used towards the purchase of an ultra low-dose 2D/3D imaging system, which will provide Connecticut Children's orthopaedic surgeons with excellent image quality to meet spinal and limb alignment imaging needs of pediatric patients. The cost of this imaging technology is approximately $700,000.
“With more than 50 research projects, we rely on the support from the Geno Auriemma’s Fore the Kids Tournament to invest in the necessary software and hardware available to ensure the best outcomes for these studies and most importantly - our patient’s care.”
