Kevin Ollie and Jen Rizzotti are honorary co-chairs for the Miracle League of Connecticut’s Celebrity Golf Classic on June 3 at Wampanoag CC in West Hartford.
Proceeds from the tournament go to maintain the baseball facility at Trout Brook and Asylum Ave., a flat, cushioned baseball field that is fully wheelchair accessible, as is the adjoining playground. “The mission of the Miracle League of Connecticut is to provide boys and girls ages 5-18 with developmental and/or physical challenges the opportunity to play baseball in a safe and nurturing environment,” reads the tournament’s brochure.
The hope is to build more facilities of this kind in Connecticut. Here is more information.
