Our boys golf team along with Coach Tom O’Donnell sponsored the Folds of Honor golf tournament on May 7th at the Country Club of Darien. The team did an outstanding job raising over $4,000 for the Folds of Honor Foundation that provides educational scholarships for families of fallen or disabled veterans. Thank you gentlemen, for your care of our larger community!
