Numerous prizes will be awarded at the tournament: Closest to the Pin (two prizes per hole), Lowest Team Gross (first and second places), Putting Contest, Break the Glass Contest, Fantastic Raffle Prizes, 50/50 chances on all Par 3 holes, plus Hole-in-One Prizes on all Par 3s sponsored by Loehmann Blasius Chevrolet.

Proceeds from the Fred Soliani Memorial Golf Tournament funds scholarships in Soliani’s memory and the Bristol Lions Club’s initiative with BristolHospital to help the visually impaired – Bristol Lions Club / BristolHospitalMickeyNesticoLowVisionCenter.

This year proceeds also will support a new Lions project: NFB – CT (National Federation of the Blind of Connecticut). The NFB’s philosophy states: “As a blind person, it is essential to possess a strong sense of confidence in one’s own ability and self worth. The NFB believes blindness is merely an inconvenience and, with proper skills and training, a blind individual can obtain success in his or her personal and professional life. The NFB makes it possible for blind individuals to reach their full potential by providing information, scholarships, seminars, and support networks.”
