On June 18 friends and supporters of the Italian Home gathered at Blue Hill Country Club in Canton, MA for the 35th annual Play for Kids Golf Tournament with Steve Callahan, Jr. of Callahan Construction Managers as the Event Chair. After lunch on the patio, twenty foursomes played 18 holes on a hot day, competing for prizes and glory, with a team consisting of Italian Home board members Chuck Giacchetto and Jim Marano, as well as friends Shaun Real and Chris Marano taking home first place. Other prizes were awarded for men’s and women’s closest to the pin and longest drive. There were also raffle entries given for those who beat one of the course’s pro golfers on a par 3 drive and from Dixon golf for a chance to win a custom driver.
