Paddle for Purpose Raises Over $20,000

March 6, 2019
Hingham, MA

2019 Paddle For PurposePaddle for Purpose was hosted by Black Rock Country Club in Hingham, Massachusetts, Cohasset Golf Club, Scituate Racket & Fitness, and Duxbury Yacht Club. More than 70 players participated, mostly from the South Shore of Boston. Players were placed into A and B levels for both men and women, with the women taking the brunt of the snowy weather in the morning. The event culminated in a final for each level, with prizes donated by Viking and Harrow. The area pros, Bill Horne (SRF), Rob Pierce (DYC), Brian Leahy (CGC), and Jason Ronan (BRCC), put on a fun exhibition match to end the day. After the competition wrapped up, players, spouses, and friends gathered at Black Rock for a burger bar, drinks, and music by the Aldous Collins Band. Much of the fundraising came during the silent auction—items included Rolling Stones tickets, lots of paddle great, pizza for a year, and more.

The proceeds from the event benefit Cardinal Cushing Centers in Hanover, MA. Cardinal Cushing Centers supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, providing possibilities for growth and advancement.
