The 10th Annual Fireants/LIVESTRONG Golf Outing is in FULL SWING! With the expectation of a sell-out field, the team is looking forward to a special day. “Lou loves special days”, Lou Battista Sr. said of the event. Lou and Liz Battista volunteered and watched hole #7, which entailed following every golfer from tee-off to to putt. “I love to talk, but man, that was a lot of talking” Lou said. Last year’s event was impacted down by severe rain, but it certainly did not weigh down the energy level of the crowd.
That being said, the committee is in the process of putting together special 10-year anniversary event. One thing, among others, that the committee is proud of is that the majority of the golfers come back every year, many of which have been here from the start. “The event has taken on many new meanings”, Fireants owner Jim Miller said. “With the Maurers there presenting the scholarship award, to the memories made every year, to the great support we get from all in attendance, and to the great volunteers and committee members that make this a great event, there is a lot to be proud of”.
The night also usually entails an emotional speech from former Fireants coach and LIVESTRONG Greater Hartford representative Roger Levesque. “I usually carry a diaper on me as for some reason I cannot contain myself”, Levesque said of the day.
