2019 Hasbro Children's Hospital Golf Tournament

2019 Hasbro Children’s Hospital Golf Invitational
Raises Record $343,875

During a day filled with sunshine, nearly 140 golfers took to the links at Rhode Island Country Club, coming together to raise a record $343,875 for the area’s leading pediatric hospital.

Co-chaired by longtime supporters Lawrence A. Aubin, Sr., chairman of the Lifespan Board of Directors, and James “Jamo” L. Carr, Jr. the signature Hasbro Children’s Hospital Invitational – now in its 24th year – was held on Monday, July 22. Proceeds will support hospital programs and research efforts with the greatest funding need. Of the total raised, $24,900 generated through a special fund-a-need will benefit renovations to pediatric pre- and post-surgical areas.

The invitational featured a slate of 34 foursomes eager to play the esteemed course that has been the longtime host of the CVS Health Charity Classic and select USGA Championships. The day featured two hole-in-one contests; one a $100,000 challenge offered by Aubin Corporation, and the other a chance to win a 2-year lease for a Mercedes Benz offered by Viti Automotive Group. Among the many community leaders to participate in the day were New England Patriots players Stephen Gostkowski and Joe Cardona.

Following play, golfers made their way to the clubhouse for a reception, followed by awards, dinner, and a live auction. Hosted by the co-chairs, the auction raised $23,500 with friendly bidding surrounding a Foxwoods package that included golf at Lake of Isles and a George Strait concert experience at Gillette Stadium. The invitational’s first place team was Cox Business.

The 2019 Hasbro Children’s Hospital Invitational was made possible thanks to presenting sponsors Aubin Corporation and H. Carr & Sons, Inc., along with clubhouse sponsor Rhode Island Medical Imaging, and golf ball sponsor ACS Industries, Inc., among the event’s more than 60 sponsors and contributors.

Since its inception in 1996, the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Invitational has raised more than $5 million for the hospital.
