Providence Children’s Museum Holds 34th Annual Golf Tournament
Providence Children’s Museum will hold its 34th annual Allen H. Chatterton Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, August 7 at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, RI. Participants can take a turn on a course ranked one of the top 50 in the nation by Golf Magazine, GolfWeek and Golf Digest or simply enjoy cocktails and dinner at the clubhouse.
Sponsorships and foursomes are available and going quickly. Golf packages begin at $1,200 for foursomes and include 18 holes of golf, greens fees, cart, lunch, dinner and on-course beverages. Dinner-only tickets are available for $50 per person. All proceeds benefit Providence Children’s Museum.
Golf registration begins at 11:30 AM with a shotgun start at 1:15 PM and prizes will be awarded for skill contests such as longest drive and a hole-in-one cash prize of $10,000. Cocktails and dinner begin at 6:00 PM, and the evening includes a silent auction featuring rounds of golf at exclusive courses.
The Museum’s first-class annual golf tournament was instituted in 1984 by the late Allen Chatterton Jr., an early supporter and Board member of the Children’s Museum, and is chaired by his son, Rumford resident Allen H. Chatterton III of Chatterton Insurance in Pawtucket. Proceeds support Rhode Island’s only museum especially for children and their families – a hands-on environment that inspires and celebrates learning through active play and exploration – and enable the Museum to serve a growing number of children and caregivers of all economic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
