Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut to host golf fundraiser

The Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut is getting ready for the 8th Annual Andrew’s Golf Benefit for Epilepsy.
It will take place on Thursday, July 11, at Quarry Ridge Golf Course, 9 Rose Hill Road, Portland.
This event was established and is hosted by the Purdy family, whose son Andrew has epilepsy.  Epilepsy is a chronic medical condition produced by sudden changes in the electrical function of the brain that results in more than 20 different types of seizures.  It is one of the most common neurological disorders in the United States, affecting approximately 60,000 people in Connecticut. Andrew’s Golf Benefit for Epilepsy raises funds to provide information, education, recreation, advocacy and support.
The fee is $150, which includes golf carts and greens fees. Activities include a barbecue lunch from 10:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There will be a raffle, with prizes including golf clubs and a flat screen TV. A hole in one prize is a Hawaiian vacation. 
Sponsorships are available. Sponsorships range from $50 business advertising to the platinum level, in which the donation is $5,000. Sponsors should register by June 22 to receive all benefits.
Prizes will be awarded for first place team, second place team, longest drive, and closest to pin winners. Registration on the day of the event begins at 8:30 a.m., and golfers must arrive by 9:30 a.m.
