The Honorine St. Jude Golf Classic was established in 2009 by Scott Gance of Wilton, in memory of his parents, Anthony and Marcelle (“Honorine”) Gance, who generously supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for many years. The tournament carries on this tradition by creating a premium charity golf tournament and Summerfest event with all net proceeds sent to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The format is a Four-Person Scramble, and awards will be given for the Longest Drive, Closest-to-the-Pin, Hole-in-One, and more. Players will enjoy a barbecue lunch, practice and analysis on the driving range with a golf pro from The Golf Performance Center, cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres, a gourmet awards dinner on the clubhouse patio, live musical entertainment, and the chance to win numerous awards, door prizes and silent auction items.
