Golfers support Maritime Aquarium
Ninety-six golfers took part in The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk’s 10th annual Golf Classic held recently at Darien’s Wee Burn Country Club. Over $185,000 was raised in support of the Aquarium’s exhibits and initiatives. A sunset dinner complemented by music from Norwalk Symphony Orchestra members rounded out the day. Aquarium Development Director Danielle Tranzillo said, “This event is always a fun and memorable outing, but more so this year as it was the first large-scale fundraiser hosted by the Aquarium since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. We thank the 96 golfers who turned out and contributed so much, and also the Wee Burn Country Club for again hosting us on their beautiful course and fabulous facilities.”
The presenting sponsor was Fairfield County Bank, along with co-sponsors New Canaan Funding and Spinnaker Real Estate Partners LLC.
