Golf tournament to benefit scholarship fund


NAUGATUCK — The 23nd annual Jesse Camille’s Candy’s Tourney golf event is Sept. 8 at Hop Brook Golf Course.

The tournament benefits the Camille B. Perugini Charitable Trust Scholarship Fund. Camille Perugini died unexpectedly in 1997, a year after the tournament started, and the event was dedicated to her. The scholarship fund has awarded over $221,500 in scholarships to area college-bound high school seniors since 1998.

The tournament tees off at 12 p.m. The cost is $150 and includes lunch at 11 a.m., golf, and a buffet dinner at 6:30 p.m. The cost for dinner only is $25.

The scholarship committee is seeking hole sponsors and raffle donations. For more information, to donate, become a sponsor or to register, contact Larry Erickson at 203-560-6692 or
