The first CCAR Cup Golf Tournament was a huge success!

Hartford, CT (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

The Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) is proud to announce that its first annual CCAR Cup Tournament was an outstanding success. The event took place on June 18th, 2014 at the Hawk’s Landing Country Club in Southington, Connecticut. The day was blessed with good weather, great food, prizes, networking, and the strong spirit of the over 100 CCAR staff, volunteers, and golfers who attended. All of the money raised was used to support CCAR’s continuing mission to organize the recovery community to put a face on recovery and provide recovery support services.

During the awards dinner, Phil Valentine, Executive Director of CCAR, expressed his gratitude for the support of the committee, volunteers, staff, and golfers, stating that it was a true testament to CCAR. “I can’t begin to tell you how kind and compassionate the people are who helped today come together so beautifully,” said Phil. “We are so thankful for everyone who made today possible, and cannot wait for next year’s tournament.”

A special thanks to the Recovery Network of Programs for being this year’s top sponsor. The planning is already underway for next year’s tournament, and CCAR encourages those interested in playing in the 2015 Cup to register early.
