The Naugatuck Chamber of Commerce, an affiliate of the Waterbury Regional Chamber, is collaborating with the Naugatuck YMCA to host the 20th Annual Golf Outing “fun raiser” on Tuesday, May 6 at the Watertown Golf Club in Watertown at 246 Guernseytown Road. All proceeds from the non-profit outing will provide organizational benefits and support to the Naugatuck community at large. Ion Bank and Sarracco Mechanical Services are current outing sponsors and event organizers are seeking additional sponsors, raffle prize donations and players.
Courtney Ligi, special events director for the Waterbury Regional Chamber and the Naugatuck Chamber of Commerce stated that, “We are seeking additional event sponsors at several levels. All sponsorships must be confirmed by March 11th for those sponsoring companies to be included in all our pre-event marketing promotions.” Current cart sponsor is Naugatuck Valley Savings and Loan. “Additional sponsorship opportunities include additional outing sponsors, gold sponsors, cart sponsor, putting green sponsors and tee/green sponsors.”

In “Best 2 Out of 4 Format’, a 50/50 Money Hole prize will also be offered and Nardelli’s Grinder Shoppe of Naugatuck will provide a 6-foot grinder “of choice” prize to the golfer who comes closest to the pin. In 2013, the ‘grand prize hole-in-one winner’ was Rob Nocera of Waterbury Housing Fund in Waterbury who won a truck provided by J&M Automotive Sales & Service.
