SHELTON, CONN. -- This year's Healing Hearts Paddle Tournament on Nov. 19 to benefit Adam's House offers separate divisions for men's and women's teams to allow more competition for players, organizers said.
Teams of four people can register for $180, which includes dinner and prizes at the Aspetuck Valley Country Club, 67 Old Redding Road, Weston.
It's all part of a fundraiser to benefit Shelton-based Adam's House. The tournament starts at 1 p.m. Nov. 19 and teams will be playing throughout the day at the Wilton YMCA, Weston Field Club and Wilton Riding Club. Semi-finals and finals will be played at the Aspetuck Valley Country Club, followed by dinner and prizes.
"Adam's House has had very successful Paddle Tournaments for the past four years, but this year is the first time we've had separate men's and women's teams for competitive players," said Allison Wysota, Adam's House founder. "Our Paddle Tournaments always attract enthusiastic players and supporters who have a great time playing, plus enjoying dinner and drinks and the chance to win prizes."
Those who don't want to play in the tournament can come to the dinner, which starts at 5:30 p.m., for $50 per person. Visit the Adam's House website for more information and to register.
New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bill tickets to the New Year’s Day game at will be raffled off at the dinner. There will also be an apple picking game, giving supporters a chance to pick an “apple” off the tree and win one of these prizes: wine, free paddle lesson, gift certificates for spa treatments, Tennis Spot gift card, gas gift certificates and gear, including vests, golf shirts or baseball caps.
Sponsorships are still available, with gold level at $3,000; silver for $1,500; and bronze for $750. Sponsors will receive a package of tickets, signage and advertising.
Proceeds from the event go to support Adam's House, a grief-support organization for Connecticut children and their families. Adam’s House, 241 Coram Ave., in Shelton, is part of the Adam Wysota Foundation, which honors the memory of Adam Wysota, a father, coach and volunteer.
