On August 1, nearly 100 golfers from across southern New England took part in Providence Children’s Museum’s 33rd Annual Allen H. Chatterton Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament, held at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, RI. The tournament, presented by Admirals Bank, netted a projected $44,500 to benefit the Museum’s hands-on exhibits and innovative educational programs.
The day’s winners included: low net team – Rich Halladay and team from The Allied Group; low gross team – Joe Nagle and team from Delta Dental of Rhode Island; individual low net – Ted Shallcross of Amica Insurance; and individual low gross – Steve Edwards of Delta Dental of Rhode Island.
At the evening’s dinner, guests bid $5,800 on silent auction items including rounds of golf at exclusive courses such as Newport Country Club and Sakonnet Golf Club. They also gave $3,725 to support three-dozen charitable Museum memberships for low-income families. A raffle and contest holes around the course brought in an additional $3,700.
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 27th 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.
