PROVIDENCE – The 28th annual Woonsocket Little League’s Jim Carr Memorial Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament, which was held on Aug. 21 at Triggs Memorial Golf Course, was again a big success, as the tourney raised $14,250, bringing its all-time total to $317,877.
All the proceeds went to the Jimmy Fund, which is a major fundraising arm of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
One hundred and thirty-six golfers competed in a best-ball format, and a tailgate barbecue was enjoyed at the Rescue Pub on the golf course at the completion of the tournament.
The winning foursome, which shared a $400 cash prize, was Jake Laverdiere, Zach Silva, Pat Healey, and Matt Corio. Laverdiere, Healey, and Corio were also on the winning foursome in last year’s tournament.
The men’s Long Drive champion was Laverdiere, who won $100, and the Closest to Pin winner was Frank Tweedie, who won $300.
The volunteers who assisted tournament director Gerry Forget were his wife, Beverly Forget, Denise and Bob Forget, Carl Jetty, Roland Hudon, Fred Charlska, Lorraine Nicolay, Amanda Forget, Jeff Forget, Luc St. Germain, Natalie Marshall, and Amy McCallum.
