With this year’s funds, the CJR Invitational has netted nearly $1.1 million since it was established in 1996 as a benefit for the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR). 

More than 250 golf participants, sponsors  and volunteers contributed to the success of the 2012 event, which was held on a picture-perfect day in June.     

All funds raised benefit the more than 1,300 boys, girls and families served annually by the Junior Republic.
