Once again, we would like to thank you for participating in Andrew’s Golf Benefit for Epilepsy.
This is the 13th year of Andrew’s Golf Tournament. It is hard to believe it has been that long. We started the tournament when Andrew was just two years old. He turned 15 in February. For our family it is bewildering to see people year after year. There are many of you who have been here every year. A thank you is not enough for your support.
Whether or not this is your 13th year or your first, we welcome you. We hope the 13th will be luckier than last year as far as weather goes. A thank you to those who braved the torrential rain to get in an adventurous nine holes.
Andrew is still seizure free and has been for several years. That is truly a blessing for he and our family. There is still fear a breakthrough seizure will occur. Thankfully, the medications are working perfectly. We are the lucky ones. There are still thousands of families out there who have no control over their seizures. There is still a need to reach out to those families and help fund the research that will someday, hopefully, cure this insidious disease. Your donation to the Epilepsy Foundation of CT is used for outreach programs to educate the public about this disease and to send children with epilepsy to Camp Courage.
Once again, thank you seems inadequate for all your help in spreading the word and for your generosity. We look forward to a fantastic day on July 6th. See you then.

12th Annual Andrew's Golf Benefit Raises $47,000!
Despite a very challenging day with the weather, we are pleased to announce 136 golfers still attended the 12th Annual Andrew’s Golf Benefit for Epilepsy! We raised $47,000 which will go directly to our programs and services that support people with epilepsy in Connecticut.
We are grateful to all of our golfers and sponsors, but particularly to Brian Purdy for taking the initiative twelve years ago to organize this event. There wouldn’t be a tournament without his passion for our cause.
Special thanks also goes to Ian Race, Beth Mercier, Greg Caponegro, John Delponte, and Linda Beaudoin for all their help in bringing in golfers and sponsors to this year’s tournament.
We would like to recognize our day of event volunteers for helping to make everything run smoothly: Carmie Chester, Karen Demmons, Jason Demmons and friend Brandon, Janet Dubois, Cynthia Reynolds, Jack Wood, Teresa Wood. We would also like to thank Joe Furey, meteorologist from FOX 61, for attending the event and announcing raffle prize winners.
Congratulations to Scott Harger for winning the “closest to the pin” contest, Paul Just and Teri Deehan for winning the “longest drive” contest for men and women, respectively, and Andy Torres for winning “closest to the pin” on the golf ball launcher contest. Due to the weather conditions, there was no winning foursome this year as scorecards were not collected.
We look forward to seeing you at the 13th Annual Andrew's Golf Benefit next July!
