ASA-CT 2016 Golf Outing Benefits Military Support Organization

On Friday, June 3, ASA-CT held its sixth annual golf outing at the Lyman Orchards Golf Club in Middlefield, CT. Over 90 attendees participated in the event, which served to raise funds to donate to Enfield HOOAH, an organization that supports active duty military members and their families as well as veterans.

According to Lisa Siembab, executive director of the association, "ASA-CT's annual golf outing raises funds each year to give to local charities within the state, and this year, we chose Enfield HOOAH, located in Enfield, CT. Enfield HOOAH is responsible for a number of community-based projects that support active military members and their families at home."

Enfield HOOAH regularly sends care packages to active military members from the Enfield area. The organization also participates in special projects such as Wreaths Across America and Cookies for Camouflage. Enfield HOOAH was founded by Lori Gates, who is passionate about helping the military since her husband served 24 years in the U.S. Army.

"We are honored to have an opportunity to help this wonderful project in just a small way. We will be donating monies and supplies to help with the soldier care packages in the fall," said Siembab.

Major sponsors for the event included Paul Francis & Company, BMW of Watertown, Hoffman Auto Group, ERAC, ABSAP, Kemperle, Balise, Sherwin Williams, Axalta and Norton.
