In Chamber Events, Golf Outing

You Play, You Win, You Choose!, Thursday, October 18th – Woodway Country Club (NOTE Rescheduled Date)

The New Canaan Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that their 2018 Golf Event will be a Charity Challenge. In keeping with the Chamber’s mission of Connecting Community with Commerce, winnings from the Tournament will be directed to local nonprofit organizations.

The Tournament will have 1:00 pm shotgun start and played in a Shamble* format. The 2018 lead sponsor, Rand Insurance, will be donating prize money for the three teams with the lowest net score to the local nonprofit of each foursomes’ choosing – a real win-win!.

The opportunity to play for your favorite local charity will not end with the top three teams….there will be other challenges during play (i.e. longest drive, closest to the pin) sponsored by a variety of local businesses that will give all players the chance to have their winnings donated to local nonprofit organizations as well.

While the goal of the 2018 Chamber Cup is to raise funds to support the local nonprofits and community events produced by the New Canaan Chamber throughout the year, we can all agree that a round of no-stress golf is an enjoyable way to make new connections and provide an opportunity to mix and mingle with nearby business and community leaders.

“Rand Insurance has been a community partner in New Canaan, as well as Greenwich and Darien since 1938 and when we were looking for a lead sponsor for this year’s Chamber Golf Event, we knew they would step up to the “Tee” said Tucker Murphy, Executive Director of The New Canaan Chamber of Commerce. “The power of Partnerships is part of what make living and working in New Canaan so special and the 2018 Golf event is a perfect example of how business leaders can come together to make a difference for our local non- profits.

“As part of our corporate mission, we make it our business to take an active role in events that benefit the local communities where we live and work.  The opportunity to support the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce with their mission in this format is a no-brainer! – Brendan O’Brien, Vice President, Private Client Group at RAND Insurance.

The 2018 Chamber Cup will be held at Woodway Country Club 540 Hoyt St, Darien, CT on Thursday October 11th. To sign up to be a Sponsor, register a foursome or to learn more about the Event visit or call the Chamber office 203-966-2004
