Golf Outing Raises Funds For Catholic Charities

After being postponed for rain in June, the 2019 Catholic Charities AETNA Golf Classic teed off at The Patterson Club in Fairfield on September 30. This year’s event was even more successful than last year. The event hosted 23 foursomes and raised approximately $95,000 to benefit all of the programs served by Catholic Charities.

In addition to a joyous round of golf, the event hosts a wonderful post-golf banquet during which the agency honored Bobby Crabtree of Colonial Toyota with the Catholic Charities Service Award. Colonial Toyota has been a regular sponsor of the golf outing for at least years and Bobby Crabtree is an active supporter of the agency.

AETNA agreed to be the signature sponsor for next year’s event. This year’s event was also sponsored by Denis & Britta Nayden, Bank of America & Merrill Lynch, TD Bank, The Minton Family, Compass Diversified Holdings, Michael O’Rourke, St. Aloysius Church and Colonial Toyota.
