On August 4, more than 100 golfers from across southern New England took part in Providence Children’s Museum’s 31st Annual Allen H. Chatterton Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament, held at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, RI.  The tournament, presented by Admirals Bank, netted a record $47,000 to benefit the Museum’s hands-on exhibits and innovative educational programs.

The day’s winners included: low net team – Christian Leibl-Cote and team from AAA Member Choice Vacations; low gross team – Larry Blau and team from LW Blau Restoration; individual low net – Joe Falzone of AAA Member Choice Vacations; and individual low gross – Mike Hogan of TD Bank.  The team from LW Blau Restoration also won a special contest sponsored by Chatterton Insurance. 

At the evening’s dinner, guests bid $6,350 on silent auction items including rounds of golf at exclusive courses. They also gave to support Museum projects to inspire children’s love of learning, including contributions toward nearly a dozen charitable memberships for low-income families. A raffle and contest holes around the course brought in an additional $3,675

Providence Children’s Museum’s annual golf tournament was instituted in 1984 by the late Allen H. Chatterton Jr., an early supporter and board member of the Children’s Museum.  The Museum gratefully acknowledges Allen H. Chatterton III – a Rumford resident and president of Chatterton Insurance in Pawtucket – who chaired the tournament for the 25th consecutive year in memory of his father; presenting sponsor Admirals Bank; and all of the other sponsors, golfers, committee members and volunteers for making the tournament a success.
