The Friends of Mike Arburr are hosting the seventh annual Mike Arburr Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament on Wednesday, June 27, at Hawks Landing in Southington.
Arburr, in addition to being a former Terryville police officer, was a very active volunteer in youth sports in the greater Bristol area for many years. He served as President of McCabe-Waters Little League as well as many positions with McCabe and the CT Titans softball program. Unfortunately, Arburr passed in 2012 at a young age.
To honor the memory of Arburr and his countless hours of dedicated volunteerism, his friends have established this event. Proceeds will be used to help promote local Little League programs and other youth sports programs, as well as the establishment of an annual scholarship.
Anyone wishing to sponsor or participate in the tournament should contact Rick at (860) 584-0491.
Over the past six years, the group has donated more than $55,000 to those programs.
