A Look Back at the 2016 Golf Classic

Teeing Up for Wishes through the Make-A-Wish Golf Classic

It was a successful day of fundraising and golf at the Springfield Country Club in West Springfield, MA, on June 27, and we’re grateful to the golfers, donors, sponsors, and wish children who united to make the annual Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island Golf Classic a day to remember. 

Special guests included wish child Abigail, 5, who met a unicorn for her wish; wish child Ella, 8, who wished to go to Walt Disney World® Resort; and wish child Amelia, 10, who wished to go on a Disney-themed cruise. Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor The Salema Family and Dunkin’ Donuts, as well as our event committee, which has been chaired for the last 15 years by Frank Crinella, Regional Vice President, TD Bank in Springfield.

The 2016 Make-A-Wish Golf Classic raised nearly $88,000 ─ the most in the event’s history ─ to grant wishes for 11 children with life-threatening medical conditions in Western Massachusetts.
