The Watertown Boys & Girls Club is hosting its 45th Annual Stephen P. Mugar Memorial Golf Tournament, the organization’s largest fundraising event, on August 22nd at Oakley Country Club.
Sponsored by the Mugar Family and the Oakley Country Club, the event offers Club supporters the opportunity to play at the private course while helping to support Watertown’s largest nonprofit supporting children and teens.
“We’re so grateful to the Mugar Family and the Oakley Country Club for their support of the Club over these past 45 years,” said Phil Greenough, chairman of the Club’s board of directors. “With the leadership of these wonderful organizations and the contributions of so many other corporations and individuals, this tournament is a signature event for the Club and the community. We depend on this day to fund so many key programs for the more 1400 members of the Club.”
The Mugar Golf event is open to the public for play for groups and individuals as space permits. Details can be found at the Club’s website – watertownbgc.org. The 2022 Mugar Golf event is also sponsored by Arbella Insurance Foundation, Lexus / Toyota of Watertown, and Watertown Savings Bank.
With the Mugar Family support, the tournament has grown significantly, and the funds raised from this now accounts for nearly one-fourth of WBGC operating budget.
Founded in 1898, the Oakley Country Club is the home to the first Donald Ross designed golf course in America. The Donald Ross design of lush greenery and well-kept landscaping continues to grow, expand and redesign to stay up-to-date and modern.
For 50 years, Watertown Boys & Girls Club has served hundreds of thousands of children through after- school programs, activities, and camps. The Club continues to serve their mission, which is “to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”
