Wheeler’s Golf Classic, a Time-Honored Tradition
The Wheeler Golf Classic was founded by a group of business leaders and top companies in 1986 to raise money for behavioral health and community-based services for children and adolescents. The event, now in its 33rd year, engages members of the business community in a great day of golf to support Wheeler’s mission.
More than $1.1 million has been raised since the first golf classic, and some of the original supporters remain involved today, including Yarde Metals, McPhee Electric and Tollman Spring Company. Proceeds from Golf Classic events have helped Wheeler address emergent community needs such as ensuring access to integrated primary and behavioral health services in underserved communities, child abuse prevention, and providing a state-of-the art learning environment for students with emotional and behavioral challenges.
Wheeler’s 33rd Annual Golf Classic, happening on June 11, 2018, is made possible by a number of local businesses, including Platinum Dinner Sponsor, Farmington Bank; Platinum Logo Sponsor, Manafort Family Foundation; Golf Cart Sponsor, Loureiro Engineering Associates Inc.; Lunch Sponsor Gibbs; Beverage Cart Sponsor, Richard Cartland; Practice Range Sponsor Whittlesey; Putting Contest Sponsor, Anonymous; Grand Prize Sponsor Sanditz; and Hole-in-One Sponsor, Land Rover Farmington Valley. Wheeler’s Chairman’s Circle Sponsors also provided generous support, including Barnes Group, Inc., Mott, Mutual of America, Laurie & Bill Torres and Karl Krapek.
