FARMINGTON, Conn. (May 21, 2024) – Wheeler’s 39th Annual Golf Classic will take place at The Country Club of Farmington on Wednesday, September 18, 2024. Registration is open, and sponsors, players, and prize donors are welcome.

“We are looking forward to this year’s event, and we’re so grateful to our longtime and new supporters,” said Sabrina Trocchi, PhD, MPA, president and chief executive officer, Wheeler. “Proceeds will benefit our Basic Needs fund, which allows us to help provide for our patients’ most pressing needs, including food, clothing, transportation, and more.

“Since 2018, our Basic Needs Fund, which is one hundred percent donor supported, has served more than 8,500 patients,” Trocchi added.

In 2023, Wheeler’s Golf Classic netted approximately $78,000—a record-breaking amount—to support Wheeler’s new flagship community health center and administrative headquarters at One Hope Street, Bristol.

The total amount raised through this event is more than $1.4 million since its inception in 1986.

The 2023 tournament, driven by strong community support for the Bristol project, netted approximately 24 percent more than the 2022 Wheeler Golf Classic, which previously had been the record-setting year for the event.
