Brescome Barton and Worldwide Wines hosted their 5th annual charity golf outing on September 19 at the New Haven Country Club. With more than 100 golfers, the event raised over $80,000 for the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF). Each year, the event recognizes the charity’s efforts on behalf of those who serve and their families, providing beneficiaries with grants for education, medical equipment and services, and other resources in a time of need. The golf outing began with opening remarks from CEO and President of Brescome Barton, Gene Sepe, followed by a Marine Corps Honor Guard flag and rifle procession. Golfers then played a team scramble with breakfast and lunch provided, culminating with an awards dinner. Raffle sales also raised funds for the charity. Despite the rain calling golfers off the course midday, the setting provided trade guests ample opportunity to enjoy the charity gathering.
