Charity Golf Tournament

For over 20 years, HYSB’s annual golf tournament has been the organization’s largest fundraiser. Held at Torrington Country Club, an otherwise private course, this day has become a late-summer community favorite. The tournament is made possible by community businesses and individuals who generously support the day through various levels of sponsorships. In additional to the 18-hole course, there are raffles, putting contests, a silent auction and various games and prizes throughout the day.
