The Honorine Golf Classic was established in memory of Anthony & Marcelle Gance, who generously supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for many years. The tournament is named after Marcelle’s French middle name, “Honorine.” For many years the tournament donated all of its net proceeds to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, contributing well over $130,000. Today the tournament still carries on this tradition by donating a portion of its proceeds to the hospital.
This year the Honorine Golf Classic is thrilled to announce support for an additional fantastic children’s cause that is closer to home here in Connecticut. Starting in 2021, the event will donate a large portion of its proceeds to the Hole in the Wall Gang, where seriously ill children can enjoy some serious fun.
Founded by Connecticut-native, Paul Newman, the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families throughout the Northeast, free of charge. It’s a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood through both its stunning camp facilities in Ashford as well as through its hospital & family outreach programs for children who physically can’t make it to the camp.
The Honorine Golf Classic is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization.
