2018 Golfer/Dinner/Sponsor Registration Form
2018 Non-Golfer/Dinner/Sponsor Registration Form

The twelfth annual Petit Family Foundation Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, June 18th, 2018 at the Country Club of Farmington (CCF). The first tournament was held in October 2007. The tournament moved to the third Monday in June starting in 2008. Beginning with the first event, Bernie Lidestri has continued to chair the tournaments. The first eleven tournaments have raised over $990,000 that has been used for grants to benefit the citizens of CT, the region and others around the nation.

At the Dinner
Kara Sundlun and Dennis House, both from media sponsor WFSB Channel 3, will serve as announcers and auctioneers again this year.

Behind the Scenes
Special thanks again to Farmington Bank who has been the Lead Sponsor for all the Petit Family Foundation golf tournaments, and thanks to Gary Hunt who provides Hole-in-One coverage for our tournament.

June has been a great time for our tournament and the course is always beautifully conditioned and ready for play under the direction of Ryan O’Neal (CCF Course Superintendent). This year we will again have a double shotgun start to accommodate all golfers.

Jeremy Vitkauskas (CCF Head Golf PGA Professional) has always been the consummate pro and has been an integral part of the tournament committee. He has organized the players, obtained raffle and auction items, as well as Titleist golf balls for all the golfers in the field. Jeremy along with his assistants have tended to our golfers’ and volunteers’ every need. They have recruited the polite and efficient bag boys to handle the rapid influx of players. These young men have graciously donated their tips to the Foundation each year.

The CCF House Management, also under the direction of Jeremy, has helped with the tent set-up, breakfast, lunch, dinner and service, and has kept things moving smoothly throughout the day. The bartenders and servers have also donated their gratuities to the PFF. Chef has ensured that no one goes hungry and the food has always been excellent!

Laz Parking again this year will be donating Valet Services for our golfers and dinner guests. Also, thanks to Pete Rappoccio from Sign Pro Inc. for supplying the Tee Box Signs and Lisa Roberge from Embroidery A2Z for supplying the Pin Flags for our golf tournaments.

We receive many donations from club members, friends and local businesses that we thank each year at the event and in the program. Without their generosity, the tournament would not be nearly as successful as it has been.

The Country Club of Farmington was incorporated in 1892. In 1924, an eighteen-hole course designed by Devereux Emmet was opened. Over the decades many changes have been made, but the course continues to reflect much of Mr. Emmet’s design. It is a par 71 course and plays about 6300 yards during the tournament.
