A Look Back at 2018

Sunny skies complemented the warm hearts out on the golf course on June 25, 2018, for the 2018 Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island Golf Classic in West Springfield, MA. A terrific group of sponsors, golfers, and other supporters collectively contributed enough through the event to grant the wishes of 10 children in Western Massachusetts in the coming months!

Special guests  who joined us for the event at Springfield Country Club, included wish recipients Lila, 11, whose wish to go on a Disney cruise was granted this past April, and Ella, 10, whose wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort was granted in 2014. We thank all of our tournament sponsors – in particular, our Presenting Sponsor The Salema Family and Dunkin’ Donuts, our Ace Sponsor Lia Toyota of Northampton, and our Eagle Sponsor TD Bank – as well as our event committee members, tournament volunteers, and in-kind donors for contributing to the success of the event.
