Thank You To Everyone Who Signed Up For The 2014 Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity.  Your Generosity Helped So Many!

Birdies for Charity is a pledge-based fundraiser based on the number of birdies made during the 2014 Travelers Championship, June 18-22, 2014. Similar to a walk-a-thin, you can pledge per birdie made. For example, if  1,500 birdies are made: 1 cent = $15; 10 cents = $150; $1.00 = #1,500. Every dime of your pledged donation comes right back to the MJ Petretto Foundation.

An Event With A Purpose

The M.J. Petretto Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2009 as part of Retirement Planning Group’s commitment to give back time, talent and money to support the efforts of Connecticut not-for-profits. The Foundation’s mission is to fund organizations that support education health, and quality of life to build stronger Connecticut communities. The Foundation was also inspired by a 2008 automobile accident that nearly claimed the life of M.J.’s nephew, Jesse. He suffered a spinal cord injury that changed his life,and hers, forever. Each year The MJ Petretto Foundation Golf Classic will help fund Gaylord Hospital’s Spinal Cord Injury Program and other non-profit Connecticut Organizations. In 2011, we added Parkinson’s Disease Research and Programs to our list of charities and in  2013, we donated to Make A Wish® Connecticut. This year we are pleased to announce the addition of Shoreline Arts Alliance. Please click below to read more.

We are proud to announce that for the 6th year, the tournament will benefit Parkinson’s disease organizations that provide support and programs for patients. This donation is inspired by Linda Remington’s father Ray Przygocki, who lived with Parkinson’s.  It is the support and education from local programs such as VNA Community Healthcare’s Parkinson’s exercise classes and caregiver support group, and the Connecticut Parkinson’s Working Group (CPWG) that helps individuals cope with PD with grace, persistence and a touch of humor. There is hope a time will come very soon when there will be a cure for Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Our Mission:

To help fund local organizations that support education, health and quality of life to build stronger Connecticut communities.

Spinal Cord Injury

Gaylord Specialty Healthcare provides long term acute care and rehabilitation to patients. It serves the needs of persons who might never regain use of their limbs. Gaylord’s dream is to become a Neuro Motor Center that houses state of the science robotics and technology resources.

Parkinson’s disease

VNA Community Health Care (in Guilford) provides a twice weekly Parkinson’s Exercise Class, a monthly Parkinson’s Family Caregiver Support Group, resource materials, expert speakers and a local venue for camaraderie and information sharing.

Connecticut Parkinson’s Working Group is a forum of persons with PD who share information, concerns and actively work on challenges posed by PD.  The group holds golf outings, regular meetings (in Middletown), publishes a newsletter and collaborates with the medical community on enhanced treatments and research.

Also, the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) will be the first clinical study that identifies biomarkers of Parkinson’s disease (PD) progression and will try to develop better ways to measure the progression of PD. This is very important in Parkinson’s drug development. Sponsored by the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, the research team will be led by Ken Marek, MD, President and Senior Scientist of the Institute for Neurodegenerative Disorders, New Haven, Connecticut.

Building Communities Through The Arts

Shoreline Arts Alliance collaborates with individual artists; arts, cultural and heritage organizations; educational institutions; strategic partners; and the community at large to educate, encourage, enrich, and engage to make arts and culture a part of the daily fabric of community life.  As a Local Arts Agency for the State we support regional and state arts, culture and heritage organizations through advocacy, education, promotion and celebration.
